Spring 2016 at Dippers

Another year has begun at Dippers bringing some exciting changes. Don's bog garden is continuing to develop and the new raised walkway will enable our guests to enjoy it with us. We are grateful and very happy that the owners of the glade (across the river from our garden), have entrusted us to manage the area and we want try and enrich it with wildflowers and grasses. We did manage to take a reasonable hay crop from it his year and I have been delighted to extend my apiary and now have two hives over there.  

During these wet winter months when the bees are not very active, we have used our bee-cam to monitor the river and, from the comfort of our dining room, we have been able to witness some dramatic rises and falls in water levels during the storms.

Once more, we are pleased to say that our good friends in the village (recipients of the hay) are rearing some Large Black (rare breed) pigs for us to enable the provision of our special bacon and home made sausages for breakfast.

Reluctantly, we have after seven years with no change, decided to increase our prices this year to meet overheads, but will continue to give you our very best service - AND - we have made some exciting changes to our breakfast menu as you will see! Don't forget that evening meals are available here by arrangement.

We are pleased to welcome Karin and Dave our new landlords at the Crown Inn

We source food locally whenever possible and are pleased to offer eggs from our own chickens and honey from our own hives. Breakfast includes sausages and bacon from pigs reared in Uploders. Dippers has a 2012 Visit England Breakfast Award.

 

 

We are pleased to provide an evening meal by arrangement - menu to be discussed with you.

Please let us know if you have a special dietary requirement.

The Crown Inn in Uploders does excellent meals. You could also take a footpath walk to other good eating pubs. Taking the car you are within easy reach of Bridport town and West Bay, and the villages of Shipton Gorge and Burton Bradstock where fish caught locally is a speciality.
