Mate had breakfast and I had gammon dinner and it was first class and very good value, on top of that the staff are very... More

We made a special trip to the Dolphin. When we arrived there were people already eating. We were refused food as the football was on and they couldn't be bothered. Would never go again!

Booked a table in advance, turned up to be told to go around the back and find our own table. Helped ourselves to menus, got our own cutlery, had to make our way to the bar to order and when the food eventually came, my burger was rare. I understand some people like this, but I would be mortified if... More
