Open to guests of all West Dorset Leisure Holidays Parks, as well as local residents, Martin’s Bar & Restaurant at Highlands End Holiday Park (DT6 6AR) is a spacious and modern venue offering great service and a locally-sourced homecooked menu.
Located on the hilltop, with great views over Bridport and the West Dorset countryside, Martin’s Bar and Restaurant is a truly unique bar & restaurant, due to its fascinating collection of fire engine memorabilia. Exhibits on display range from historic firefighter helmets and other curios, to a magnificently restored 1936 Leyland fire engine and a 1902 Merryweather horse-drawn steam engine.
There is also the fantastic “Little Fire Station Soft Play” for children (charges apply). Martin’s Bar & Restaurant welcomes well behaved dogs in allocated areas of the building with a doggie menu, a beer garden and water bowls. There are dog-free zones too.
The chefs love creating delicious dishes, including some family favourites and seasonal daily specials using a whole range of local produce – in fact we use over 20 local suppliers including Palmer’s Brewery, Purbeck Ice Cream, local fishmongers and Frampton’s Butchers. There are themed menu evenings during the year, such as Pizza Night, Curry Night and Grill Night.
