Ate here on father's day with my family. Great menu on a busy Sunday which wasn't just Sunday dinner. I had the fish and chips, which was great. Desserts choice was fantastic too and price was very good.

Been coming for a few years now either with my partner or larger groups and never been disappointed. I don't know a pub that equal The Dolphin for Sunday dinner. Home-cooked with huge portions. Will keep coming back

Visited with my three hungry kids for Sunday lunch. Seated in the bar as the lounge was full, the bar is lovely anyway. Service was very prompt and friendly, portions were massive and delicious. Definitely would recommend and I'll be returning soon.

Saw no dogs in when we were there but they may be allowed in the bar and not the restaurant.
