“Robin Hood's Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

The beer was very good and it was only 10 paces away from our accommodation. Who could ask for more.

“Ye Dolphin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

It's small inside and going back up the hill after you've had a few pints might be a bit tricky, but a visit to Ye Dolphin is still worth it. The Fish Pie is outstanding and they sell Cameron's Strong Arm and Deuchars IPA - sound beer. Service was friendly and quick.

“good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Four of us turned up for food and drink on aMonday evening in March. Ate in the upstairs dining room which was warm and inviting. Did have to wait almost an hour for the food but to be fair they had said there would be a 'bit of a wait'!!!! However, we all had a different dish and the food was very good and piping hot so well worth the wait.

“Good honest food ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Great pub food. Very tasty and big portions. Would definitely go back and we recommend the giant yorkshire puds and the home made meatballs. Lovely staff as well.

“An great honest pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Too many pubs try to pretentiously be something they're not. The Dolphin isn't one of those pubs. It has a brilliant warm atmosphere and open fire. The beer is excellent and kept by people who understand how to look after a bar correctly. The food is wholesome and good pub grub. I had a very nice homemade mutton curry which was authentic and tender. The other meals people were eating looked good too and everyone seemed happy. Best of all, the staff were all welcoming and helpful from the barman to the kitchen staff who came out and asked what we thought of the food. If you're going to Robin Hoods Bay then I recommend going here for lunch.
