Good selection of local cask ales as well as some great beers on tap. Friendly staff and locals who frequent the bar. 1 note is even though AMEX Vicinity says they take American Express, they unfortunately do not.

Great little pub on the backstreets from Kings Cross. A must visit, just for the fun and atmosphere. Had a great time in here playing pool and drinking beer. Good mix of people and the staff were really good. Excellent place. Will be back!

The Dolphin is a good family run pub which is how a pub should be, friendly staff and good Thai food, and the Guinness is even better. The governor can catch you with the old Irish charm and will go on about the old days...More
