About the Pub

The Dolphin is said to be over 400 years old, although the earliest written record dates from 1785. The present building features a flagstone floor and two wood-burning inglenook fireplaces and dates from the 18th century. The pub is known to have brewed its own beer and cider until 1926. It is a busy local but also attracts many drinkers from further afield, especially at weekends. There are three drinking areas. On entering the main bar area there is an additional bar area to the other side of the large fireplace, which is put to good use in winter. Past the bar is another room, originally separated by a wall. This is the Toby Room and has another real fire at the end and some comfortable old seating, almost like an old fashioned lounge in a stately home. Further beyond this is a separate restaurant where very good food is served from 12-9 Monday to Saturday and 12-8 Sunday. Outside there is a pleasant seating area in front of the pub as well as a separate garden. There are some very good solid tables throughout the pub, which also benefits from the absence of music or noisy electronic games. The guest beer is usually from a local brewery.
