I love the Dolphin, it's a beautiful pub where I don't mind spending the extra money. HOWEVER, the manager/owner needs a serious course on hospitality. The last few times I have been here, he has been so surly or downright rude. He came to our table to clear it and made some joke about us being messy. Hello? You are not doing us a favour, we are customers and as such should not be made to feel like we are intruding. It really isn't acceptable behaviour and this is certainly not the only decent pub in Canterbury. Buck your ideas up Mister, or find another job that does not require dealing with people. I appreciate you love your garden and want it kept tidy, but do so in a polite manner. Look at the tripadvisor photograph of 'Rules For The Garden' pretty much sums up his manner. One does not want to be made to feel like a naughty school kid when spending hard earned cash!
