Four of us turned up for food and drink on aMonday evening in March. Ate in the upstairs dining room which was warm and inviting. Did have to wait almost an hour for the food but to be fair they had said there would be a 'bit of a wait'!!!! However, we all had a different dish and the food was very good and piping hot so well worth the wait.

Great pub food. Very tasty and big portions. Would definitely go back and we recommend the giant yorkshire puds and the home made meatballs. Lovely staff as well.

Too many pubs try to pretentiously be something they're not. The Dolphin isn't one of those pubs. It has a brilliant warm atmosphere and open fire. The beer is excellent and kept by people who understand how to look after a bar correctly. The food is wholesome and good pub grub. I had a very nice homemade mutton curry which was authentic and tender. The other meals people were eating looked good too and everyone seemed happy. Best of all, the staff were all welcoming and helpful from the barman to the kitchen staff who came out and asked what we thought of the food. If you're going to Robin Hoods Bay then I recommend going here for lunch.

In truth because of every other bar/restaurant being full our party of 6 entered Ye Dolphin. We ordered food and coffee at the bar. We were informed that there were not enough cups and therefore waited for 20 minutes to receive our drinks. We had chosen an empty table which hadn't been cleaned due to lack of staff I think. We ordered 6 fish and chips and waited and waited but finally after almost an hour the food arrived. In fairness the food was not the worst I have had but certainly not the best. The prices were imaginative for what we had chosen - well unless you expect to pay just under £12.00 / person for cod and chips that take an hour to arrive.

Older world charm. Staff very attentive and friendly. We are in the restaurant upstairs. Background music very pleasant. The paddock, salmon and minted pea risotto was really good. Very large portions so unfortunately couldn't fit a pudding in.
