About the Pub

An unpretentious hostelry steeped in history, the Dolphin is a Plymouth institution. Up to 8 beers are dispensed by gravity straight from the cask, with Thatchers Cheddar Valley for those who like cider. The character of this establishment is charming, with tiled floors, well-used wooden benches, together with a real open fire, all adding to the ambience. The walls are adorned with paintings by local artist, the late Beryl Cook, who painted many of the characters she encountered in the Dolphin. Plymouth CAMRA City Pub Of The Year Runner Up 2013, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019.
