Interesting to see the previous couple of reviews. We visited on the 23rd July during a very busy lunch period. We have visited before to drink but never to dine. I'm sure that you will have read the reviews and made your own observations but our comments seem to differ with previous recent posts. We only know the owner by sight and I had never spoken to him nor observed him in action until this visit. From 2pm a private gathering had booked in to drink and eat. Sufficient staff on to deal with everything . Our observation was that the owner stepped in to assist getting the food out quickly and efficiently. He did so politely and with a smile on his face even joking with some of the group. I spoke to him when we went to settle up. He was cheerful, chatty and very pleasant. No sign of rudeness. In fact the personification of the perfect host. Our food, pulled pork ciabata for me and the Salmon and crab fishcakes for Carol were superb, delivered within a very reasonable time frame and with a polite disposition. Drinks were served to perfection (TT Landlord and Pimms). Prices are acceptable due to the quality of food delivered, the garden and service standards. We speak as we find and we will definitely find the Dolphin again.
