Bridport practice

About the Bridport Practice

Our Bridport practice is in a bustling market town well known, particularly since 2013, for its connection with the highly successful TV drama series 'Broadchurch'. Bridport is a lively and busy West Dorset town along the famous Jurassic coastline.

The practice was formerly known as IJ Brown Partnership opening its doors for the first time as far back as 1882!  2016 saw the Robert Frith group purchase the IJ Brown branches.  Our commitment to a great customer journey is still as strong as ever helped along with the introduction of new technology in the consulting rooms.  We have a very strong reputation in the town for being professional but delivering it with the personal touch; we believe every customer should be treated as an individual and not rushed at any point.

Our Practice Manager and Partner, Beverley Alner, has been with the company since 2000.  Beverley, along with Optometrist Ashley Mehta, is dedicated to providing the very best in eye care and to offer the latest in lens choices and frames. They are supported by a fantastic team of Optical Assistants and Receptionists all of whom are familiar faces in the practice.

We are extremely excited to announce we will be offering hearing care services from 21st January 2019. We have teamed up with The Hearing Care Partnership (THCP) as they share our passion for personal service and clinical excellence.

Services will include:
