Did not stay at the hotel, only had a meal and drinks there but it is a very nice place in amazing location with a great sea view through the windows. Good quality pub food and nice beers. Will visit again next time we go to Whitby.

We chose the Dolphin because of its location right by the bridge. Great welcome and we had a fish pie each that was locally sourced. It was tailor made as my wife can't eat shell fish. We were told "each pie is made to order". We were not disappointed. Did not stay so can't comment on the rooms.

for many years the dolphin was not a place that I, as a local, would go, but in the last few months having found they serve peroni on draught and let dogs in we have started to go for a quick drink on the way elsewhere, and have generally enjoyed the experience and spoken to others who were eating and...

We chose to eat at the Dolphin after finding it on a dog-friendly website. We were visiting Whitby with our three dogs and often struggle to find decent establishments that are this accommodating when you have three dogs in tow! We were made instantly welcome and bowls of water were brought for the dogs before we'd even ordered drinks! All... More

Just arrived back from whitby after a great weekend break. Welcomed on arrival by the landlady and a smile. Bags carried upstairs which I wasn't expecting but very welcomed! We were in room 6 with a lovely view across the harbour. Room spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Lovely fluffy towels and toiletries placed in room along with tea/coffee making facilities....

We stayed here for 1 night and I have to say I will definitely be coming back here to stay! Very friendly landlord and lady. Rooms were spotless and modern. The breakfast was out standing and again friendly can't do enough for you! We had room 2 with the best view. Be back later in the year for another stay
