Bridge House Hotel, Beaminster, Dorset Bridge House Hotel, Beaminster, Dorset


It is often said by departing guests:
"It’s your staff you should be most proud of."

We do take great pride in the people who work for us, many of whom have been with the hotel for years.

Bridge House is truly a family business which means that we cannot always be on site especially with our young son, Louis to contend with. Therefore, we rely heavily on our staff to both represent us and reproduce the kind of standards that we demand of ourselves. If ever we are not available, a duty or senior manager is always there – day and night.

Restaurant Manager:
Jane Fox: Our longest serving member of staff, Jane has been with the hotel for 17 years, almost since its inception. Her knowledge and experience is simply incalculable. For returning visitors, Jane will instantly recognize you no matter how long ago you stayed!

Head Chef
Linda Paget: Linda has been with the hotel for ten years and from the very start has had a passion for top quality food. We are constantly making fresh demands of her as evidenced by the award of our Second AA Rosette just six months after we took over the Bridge House. Her number two is Jamie Fry who often runs the kitchen alone along with Weymouth College, Catering Student of the Year, Anthony Shaw.

Senior Housekeeper
Marie Purcell: It’s one of the toughest jobs in the business and not always one of the nicest, yet one of the most crucial areas of the hotel is housekeeping. Marie helps to ensure we keep a clean sheet.

Marketing Manager
Siân Robinson. With a background in retail, Siân, returned to work after having three children as a Duty Manager at the Bridge House. She is now enhancing that role by taking responsibility for corporate and other marketing.

Duty Managers
There is always a Duty Manager running the hotel whether we are there or not. It is a small, personal team but nonetheless invaluable and comprises Sandie Conbeer, Ria Hillier as well as Siân mentioned above.

The Backroom Team
Bridge House employs some 25, mostly part-time staff without whom we could achieve very little. They serve drinks, wait restaurant tables, clean rooms and wash-up. Like every hotel in the land, we have a complement of Polish workers who are always a pleasure to work with.
