My family and I stopped at the dolphin for refreshments . We sat outside as we had our dog with us. When my husband returned with our drinks, Two small cokes and two bottles of bulmers ciders, and informed me it cost £20 exactly. I thought they had made a mistake. But sadly not. How they can charge that amount... More

We have tried this pub twice in the last couple of days and found some of the staffs attitude to be atrocious. We asked if we could try a bitter before buying which is acceptable practice in any decent pub and were told it would cost us 40 pence for a taste. We went to go in the back room... More

The staff were all really friendly and helpful even though the hotel was busy every day we were there. After having a mix up with our online booking, they still managed to accommodate us and make us feel welcome. We ate there on the 2nd night and had lovely meals sat in the window with a view over the harbour.... More

The food is not up to standard and very expensive. Witnessed a very rude staff member and im sure the couple she was rude to will not be coming back if they have any sense. We will not be going back to this hotel.

On a busy day in Whitby we were looking for somewhere to have a nice drink whilst also feeding our 4month old. Family members went in and found a suitable area which was big enough for all of us plus the pram. However as soon as I entered with the pram we were told to it was too busy to... More

We went to Whitby on the spur of the moment and sat in a bar drinking tea. We saw the Dolphin across the road. Checked for rooms on the website. Went and booked straight to the room which was newly refurbished with a great view of the Harbour and town right by the swing bridge with boats going in and... More
