Four months after my initial review I returned to The Dolphin for their 1st Birthday Party & was over joyed to find the same high standards not only maintained but improved upon. The first thing you notice about The Dolphin is the building itself, now with a spray painted aquatic themed mural it has become a talking point for the entire town. The birthday celebrations were held over 4 gloriously sunny days, with a beer & cider tent in the garden, a BBQ, children's entertainment & live music. It was a fantastic weekend in a lovely pub, filled with so many smiling faces. Congratulations to the entire team at The Dolphin, what's the plan for year 2 ??

Anna has turned this into a quality boozer. Great food, great beer and a great beer garden. Lots of live music and a decent atmosphere along with a pool table and dartboard. One of, if not the best pub in Welly. Decent.

In an age where pubs are closing across the country how great to see somebody with drive, determination & belief prepared to rise to the challenge of re-opening a pub, & succeeding !! Locally sourced food, homecooked, an ever changing selection of specials, some tasty desserts, & waffles to die for. A fantastic selection of local ales & ciders, continental lagers, nice wines & some great spirits are all on offer, something for every taste. If you're lucky enough to drop by on a Thursday evening you may get to hear some local acoustic/folk musicians playing a few songs in the bar. A warm welcome is always guaranteed not only from the friendly bar staff but from the roaring log fire, which has been burning all winter, & should the sun come out this summer you're in the right place, The Dolphin has the best beer garden in town.

The Dolphin is just what is needed in this part of Wellington, decor is simple but inviting. We had the sunday roast, and very good it was. Unusually the vegetables were very flavoursome, not your normal over cooked offerings that you might expect. The menu for the rest of the week looks simple but well tough out, we will certainly visit again.
