Situated directly opposite Combe Martin beach, Downstairs our bar area is a great place to relax with a drink, we have a lovely open log fire all day. We allow dogs in the bar area, so why not pop in for a drink after a walk on the beach. We also have FREE WIFI and a FREE pool table for our customers and a dart board. We host various events, Live Music, Pool tournaments, Darts competitions, theme nights etc Our bistro upstairs has some of the best views in the area, looking directly over the bay. With a delicious selection of homemade meals and desserts, and a great wine list, we advise booking if you would like to eat, as since we have opened we have been very popular! Bar meals are also served downstairs Wednesday - Saturday and on Sundays we have a Carvery. So if you would like a drink and something to eat in a friendly atmosphere come along to The Dolphin.

Fantastic food. We had the seafood platter, mussels, calamari, fried white fish cooked in a garlic & white wine sauce with chips, bread and a salad. It was a large portion, which we shared, supplementing with some delicious tapas. The service was friendly, informative and...More

We stayed just around the corner in a holiday park and preferred the local atmosphere. Everything about this pub is fantastic and it over looks the sea. Well worth a visit!

A reliable place to get good pub food and a glass of wine in Combe Martin. Childrens and adult meals very reasonably priced.

Went for some food (Pizza and Chips) on Easter Monday, if you like soggy Pizza and very loud music then this is the pub for you. We wont be going again.

Had a look in here recently, though we've never had great experiences or warm welcomes in Combe Martin. This village is a ghost town in winter and someone on the restaurant staff here had been rude to us a couple of years ago. It's now...More
