Pub Overview

The Dolphin provides everything you would want from a traditional town centre community pub. It is well known for its range of traditional real ales and established pub food offering. It offers a very warm welcome for regulars and new customers alike. The pub benefits from a two bar operation, one focused on activities and sports TVs, whilst the other one offers a more relaxed pub experience with great food. In addition to this the business benefits from an external front drinking area which is very well presented, and a fabulous rear courtyard area.
