Went last night after a recommendation. Quite busy for early evening. Very attentive staff. The food delicious, garlic mushrooms with Stilton as a starter very nice and plenty of it. Lasagne very tasty, the side salad very different with grapes and melon, one of the nicest I have had out for ages. Would defiantly recommend it to friends.
. Next time I think it will me a main and dessert as unable to finish lasagne.
Lastly very good value for money. Would defiantly recommend it to friens.

We have stayed at The Dolphin several times a year for the last four years and have been delighted with the experience. The management and staff are always friendly, attentive and helpful and go out of their way to respond to any requests. The staff have all been around for some time so the atmosphere is pleasant and we sometimes see familiar faces among the guests so we are not the only regulars.

The food is excellent and the menu ranges from bar meals to special occasion choices. The 'specials' board is regularly updated and offers varied and imaginative dishes. It appears to us that The Dolphin is the 'go to' place for local celebrations so the bar and restaurant have a good atmosphere. There is also a large function room available which caters for weddings, formal dinners and meetings.

The accommodation is good and roomy and well separated from the bar and function room so noise is not a problem.. We have stayed in several of the rooms and have always been very comfortable.

Stayed at the dolphin for 3 nights, enjoyed every moment, rooms comfortable and clean, staff friendly and food delicious and good value. We have family living in Bovey Tracey and visit a couple of times a year. Have stayed here several times over the last ten years and will stay here again on our next visit.

Stayed for 1 night on business in early March 2013. Very pleasant, room super comfortable, great food on offer and the staff were very welcoming. Even made me breakfast a little earlier than usual. This is obviously popular with local residents, so has a great feel to the bar in the evening. Will stay again when around Exeter on business.

Lovely little hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, plenty to eat at breakfast. Arrived on a cold wet night the room (4) was warm, the bed was comfortable and room was very clean. Shower was great except it kept going cold every now and then. Unfortunately I miss dinner but was told by a family member that the dessert was one of the best he had. I will definatly stay again plus I need to try the desert for myself. Thanks all at the Dolphin
