Private Party for 60 people in the garden

What a fabulous place with amazing, attentive staff. We held a private birthday party for around 60 adults and children and had sole use of the pub’s front garden. It was the perfect venue for what we wanted and the staff were very accommodating. We had space for a bouncy castle, live music and they cooked all the food for the guests on the grill outside when we were ready to eat. It was the perfect party. Alice was particularly helpful with assisting us to make sure everything was as we wanted it before the party and was there to make sure everything went smoothly on the night. Actually, all the staff deserve a mention as they were wonderful.

If you need a venue for a party it is certainly worth contacting The Dolphin to see if they can accommodate you.

Wonderful evening

We visited Friday for my birthday evening and tried their All Things Rosé workshop. Delicious wines, tasty food and a lovely atmosphere. This is a true country pub with such friendly staff. Service is always fantastic and we’ll be back very soon. Only wish we lived closer!

Great Food – excellent service – beautiful pub.

I have visited The Dolphin numerous times over the past 30 years and have seen many changes. Last nights experience met all expectations and more. We held a retirement celebration for 17 people and due to the heat we were outside under the marque. The Staff were all very kind and friendly, the food was superb. A special thank you to the chef for cooking us wonderful food in such heat. Thank you to all.

Wedding Reception

Our experience with Anna and her team at the Dolphin far exceeded our expectations. From pre wedding reception planning to the outstanding meal, service, decor and excellent communication throughout.

All 45 of our guests were very impressed and throughly enjoyed themselves.

Would highly recommend the Dolphin for hassle free events in the most wonderful of settings.

Our gratitude to Anna, Ryan, Alice and team for making our special day so amazing.
