The Pulpit Inn

Hero Image

The Pulpit Inn is a Gastro Pub with accommodation situated on the fantastic Isle of Portland on Dorset’s beautiful Jurassic Coast. We are approximately 55 yards from the famous Portland Bill Lighthouse and are lucky to share with them panoramic views of the English Channel. The business is owned and run by Mrs Kay Lee, her son Damion Narbeth who is the General Manager and a dedicated team of staff. Mrs Lee purchased the property in2014 and has extensively refurbished the whole building which has given it a new lease of life.

There are plenty of activities and places to see on the Island which is popular to many walkers, divers and bird watchers throughout the year. The Island becomes a hive of activity during the spring and summer months and is extremely popular with families, therefore we suggest you visit during autumn and winter for a more tranquil experience if that is what you prefer.

During the colder months we have lovely log burner based in our cosy bar area.

We also have a function room which can seat 62 people or if you prefer a buffet the room can accommodate 100 people. The function room is available to hire for special events such as weddings, birthday parties, christenings, wakes, business meetings etc. Please ring and ask for further information.

Group bookings are welcome by prior arrangement please call on 01305 821237

Our food menu is an eclectic mix of pub favourites, daily specials and of course fresh fish dishes which include the popular Portland Crab. Our Portland crab is caught directly off the bill and is fresh daily, as are our other fish dishes. We use only suppliers who are governed by the MSC regulatory body for our fresh fish.

Our butcher is a local butcher based in Easton on the Island.

Wherever possible we use local providers and produce.

The Coastal Resort of Weymouth is our neighbouring town and from there you can easily travel to all the popular tourist spots in and around the area. There is always public transport and during busy months there is also a Jurassic Coast bus in service if you prefer not to drive. There is also a bus service from Weymouth direct to Portland Bill during the tourist season so if you fancy a day out to the Bill and want to have a nice lunch with a drink then you can do so without having to worry about a designated driver for your car.
