Description: THE DOLPHIN Inn is quickly emerging as the place to be !. Situated on Market Street, Dartmouth, the new Dolphin has an increased light, airy and welcoming interior, following a detailed and carefully planned renovation. Open from 11am to 11pm, Monday to Sunday, the business remains family-run with The warmest of welcomes for locals and tourists alike. Brother-in-laws John Jones and Glenn Powell have taken great lengths to ensure that the Inn has retained the classic features of a seaside pub, but one that is laid back and chilled in the services it offer to fit a wide-range of tastes. Sections of plush leather seating add a new sophisticated look to parts of this treasured and lovingly restored pub. With Manager John Pope – aka Geoffrey Boycott – using his great persuasive skills local boatbuilders and salvage masters have donated time and pieces in an attempt to bring some real local history to the pub – big thanks to all . As part of their ongoing push for higher standards, the pub owners have brought in a range of drinks, coinciding with the launch of a their very own brewed beer called Whaler Ale, brewed at their brewery – Bridgetown Brewery – situated on the river in the sister pub the Albert inn in Totnes.

Reviewed 14 March 2011

Found this place for lunch while passing through. It was a little cramped inside and busy with Sunday lunchers. We bought 2 drink and ordered a Ham and Mustard sandwhich / salad, and a half spicy chicken and salad. Totaled about 19 pounds. Servered very quickly, good fesh tasty food. Nice surprise to find this place & Would eat there again.

Looking for somewhere to eat, stumbled upon this great pub. The food is simple but fresh and delicious. Had monkfish scampi and chips and loved every bit.
