After a walk on the new coastal path seemed curlish not to try the Dolphin. We shared the ploughman's platter plenty of cheese and meats and enough relishes to satisfy the most discerning diner. Salad was a little sparce but that is ok with me. I finished the meal with a nice pint of Thatchers Gold what could be better.

A fun and friendly village pub with bags of character. Always a cheery welcome. Great food including fish on a Friday at good prices. Really helps give the village a feeling of community. Also great live music and the amazing yearly hobpgin event. Don't miss this pub if you visit uphill

After a very long walk on the beach and Uphill marshes with a relative's dog, we went to the cafe at Uphill but it had closed early so we thought we'd give this pub a try. We asked for two coffees and must have looked itinerant (we were covered in mud) as the barmaid asked for the money up front!... More

Seven of us ordered lunch here, and the food came out in four parts. it seems the kitchen can only cope with two meals at a time. My wife and I ordered burgers, which came with chips. The beef burger was overcooked and the veggie burger was good. The chips were just awful, inedible with a strange taste. When the... More
