We spent a lovely three nights at the Dolphin Inn a couple of weeks ago. The staff were welcoming, our room, no.1 clean and of adequate size, the food excellent both breakfast and evening meals.
The only downside for us was the configuration of the bathroom. There is only a hand held shower over the bath and it was difficult to maintain a steady water flow and constant temperature. My husband, who finds it difficult to get into a bath and cannot sit down in one, required my assistance. A shower curtain and hand rail would have helped. We did know about this as we had asked at time of booking and was informed of the situation.
On leaving, my husband left his wash bag this was packaged and sent on to us. Thank you Dolphin.

We were a group of 6 trying this pub for the first time on Sunday 12th january. From the reviews it sounded a really nice place and was as far as interior and furnishings. Food and service were however terrible. Someone ordered fish and it was only cooked one side and raw on the other. Yorkshire pudding was missing from the roast. The other roasts were served with nearly raw vegetables, and watery gravy. They did not have 2 of the most common wines first ordered with no apology. When I asked to see the manager Dave I was told he was not available. No compensation. Never again!

We spent a night as a group of six at the The Dolphin, occupying all three of their available rooms. The rooms are spacious, stylish and spotlessly clean. The welcome from the owner was very warm and personal and we were very pleased with the accommodation and value for money. The breakfast was excellent and copious and could be customised to suit your tastes and preferences. We dined at the Dolphin on Saturday evening and the food was delicious and enjoyed by all. The rib eye steak is truly awesome, but all of the food met without party's approval wholeheartedly. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back ............

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely. Room 3 has a double aspect , rooms 1 and 2 have lovely window seats, but all are stylish, comfortable and spotless.

Visiting relations and dropped into The Dolphin for lunch: had not dined there for many years, My wife and I enjoyed a beautifully cooked two course meal from the fixed price menu. Both had steak, ale and mushroom pie with mash and green beans and both had very tasty desserts. Very friendly and excellent service and would certainly visit again. TONY ROWLAND. Rushmere St Andrew

We stayed at the dolphin last November and on our return we received the same welcome - excellent,friendly service. There is an ambience at the dolphin that is hard to beat - as is the food. A walk on the almost deserted beach before breakfast, a trip to southwold and a visit to aldburgh made it a fabulous , charge the batteries, short break.
