Save The Three Cups Hotel

The Three Cups Hotel

Campaigning for preservation of the hotel where J.R.R. Tolkien stayed and gained inspiration for his mythology. Jane Austen, G.K. Chesterton, Tennyson and H.W. Longfellow were also guests. The hotel featured in the film, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”. Please send articles to me, Andrew Townsend, at or add a comment. Thanks to David Moss for all his work. Comments are closed at WDDC for the plans to redevelop the site but you can still write to the papers.

Momentum is Growing

The Bridport and Lyme Regis News has reported on John Grantham's campaign to re-open licenced premises closed by Palmers' Brewery including The Three Cups Hotel.

Click on this link to read the report. As you will see from my comment, I believe that it would be better to always refer to The Three Cups as a hotel rather than a pub. The building would not have become famous if Tolkien, Chesterton and Tennyson had not stayed there. And it would not have featured in the film, The French Lieutenant's Woman, if it had been just a pub.
