Great place for good pub food

The dolphin is a great place to go for a good honest pub meals. Been here a couple of times and tried the bankers and mash which were great and the fresh Barra and chips. Both these meals left me change from $10.

The Dolphin is a pub that has been updated but has not lost it's charm. Classic pub meals at a good price and plenty of it. Great service, it's airy and clean and a pleasant place to have a meal and a drink at realistic prices.

We live locally, hadn't eaten at the Dolphin for a long time due to average food. New management and the food was fabulous and at a great price. They advertise pub food at pub prices.... So true:-) was a great lunch and we will be back this Monday.
