Our group of 14 Senior Citizens visited the Dolphin on their annual Epicurean Tour. We weren't disappointed, the beer was great, the staff were really friendly and the locals were very welcoming and chatty. We didn't eat here as we were booked into another venue, but the menu looked varied and reasonably priced. Would certainly call again.

We all had a great night here - big group down for the Rugby at Plymouth and our group at times reached 20+ people but plenty of space. Great beer range served properly - no wonder it's a CAMRA pub plus good ciders !! A must for a boozer in Plymouth

Drink the Bass which is kept in kegs like I always have and enjoy this real old fishermans pub. Great fun to meet there and explore the Barbican.

I must admit that this is not the smartest place on the Barbican. It’s a little spit and sawdust – so if you like places like this, this pub maybe right up your street. As for myself it’s not the kind of place that I go often: it’s the kind of place which I pass through on route to somewhere... More

When on the Barbican in Plymouth you must visit this great British pub. Go back in time when pubs were welcoming drinkers who appreciated their beers. Great regulars who are always ready to have a conversation. So you must try this pub.

Lovely old pub steeped in history and full of character and characters ! Paintings by Beryl Cooke sum up the uniqueness of this place, which is not to be missed. You will not be disappointed. (However not really suitable for children) Almost forgot--the beer is excellent !!

Lovely place, always friendly, generally full at weekends. You won't find fine dining here, just a good, honest, old style pub. For me, the No. 1 pub on Plymouth Barbican. Don't go to the Barbican without visiting this inn.

I haven't been in the pub for a while because I only return to Plymouth a few times a year, however in my misspent youth this was a favourite and, the last couple of times it has been a great place for a drink.Situated opposite the old fish market and the Mayflower Steps its a great place to have a...
