The food was nice enough - basic pub grub, if you want that then this is the place, but dont expect real home made roasties or yorkshires if you like Aunt Bessies you will be happy

A lovely unpretentious town pub, with very friendly staff and good service. There's a rather nice dining area in the lounge bar, although there's plenty of room to eat in the main bar too. The menu was varied and the prices amazing value considering the size of the portions. My fish, chips and mushy peas was served in a timely... More

Had Sunday breakfast with friends. Very busy so service was a little slow but it wasn't a problem for us.

Stopped by for an early morning breakfast. Service was slow, staff more concerned with cleaning and tidying up from the night before. Once we attracted attention service picked up a bit and a very good breakfast at a good price was served. The full breakfast was of a good quality and served piping hot. A range of sauces and a...

This is the second time we ate at this pub. The service was so good and the food delicious. Even toys provided for younger children. We ate outside and it was so pleasant. Would definitely recommend!

Been looking forward to visiting the Dolphin, we visited while on holiday last year and were pleased to return last week. We took some friends with us and all had the breakfast which is first class. Two types of sausage eggs bacon fried slice hash browns beans tomatoe and black pudding. Could not eat another thing till the next day.
