My partner and I chose the Dolphin restaurant based on the delicious sounding menu and we were not disappointed. We were on a long weekend in Cornwall and stopped in Newquay on a Sunday night specifically to try out the Dolphin. I made a bit of an error on the booking form (I put the year as 1969 rather than 2013) and this meant that the Dolphin did not have our booking for the Sunday night. Luckily we phoned ahead.
The friendly staff apologised for the error (even though it was my fault) and said that they closed a bit earlier on Sunday and only had a reduced menu but could we come along and see if we liked it. The menu was still substantial and all of it was delicious sounding. I could not tell that this was a reduced menu.
I had whitebait to start and crispy topped belly pork for main. I could not manage a pudding which is unusual as I am a greedy man. The portions are very generous but still retain a sense of elegance. The menu is very fresh and wholesome and very reasonably priced, we would have paid much more.
Our more expensive meal the previous night had been excellent but very “Mastercheffy” with much smaller dishes, which meant that we left the restaurant as two very happy and very full Dolphin fans.
Thank you to the chef and the staff.
