A group of us visited the dolphin for a three course Christmas dinner. The food was just amazing, it came out hot and was cooked to perfection. The staff were all so friendly and couldn't do enough for us, will certainly return. Thank you all and wishing you a very merry Christmas.

Great beer, good wine, free wifi and a very comfy room. In the morning, John got up extra early to prepare us a fantastic breakfast so that... More

Have driven past the Dolphin on many occasions, however, following a recommendation, have since visited of three occasions for meals. Every visit has been a great dining experience with a varied menu, together with a warm welcome and friendly, attentive service. Usually have two guest beers, in addition to the standard range, Just another reason to give it a try.

This is a simple traditional pub / inn. If you arrive between 3-5pm, as I did, you'll prob have to knock at the back as the owners will be taking a well earned rest. The back of the pub has a nice outside area to sit and relax in with a drink. The rooms here are fine, traditional, but some... More

Very friendly pub with great food and beers. All home cooked, well presented and good portions. We have had quite a few meals here and have taken friends for restaurant and bar meals. All been faultless, considering price and establishment.. And a great roaring fire for those cold winter days to boot !!!

We recently had a great stay at the Dolphin Inn as part of our hike along the Offa's Dyke path. The inn is a good location for walkers, as it's right by the path. It was already evening when we arrived, and the Dolphin (as well as other inns in town) were only serving dinner till around 8:30. The folks... More

We visited here lots, the food has always been lovely the staff attentive and friendly. Love place to enjoy each other's company, parking is easy here. Great place combined with a canal walk. My only criticism is some items on the menu are a little over priced.
