Nice location, nice decor, BUT, explain the logic of having to pay £2.15 for a half a pint of ale, when a pint cost me £3.90 earlier. The seaside village of Beer is very nice and is well worth a visit.

We had family staying in the area who invited us to come down for the weekend and they found the hotel as it was close to where they were staying. My son asked about rooms and was offered the last 2. He was informed the one over the bar was noisy or the one on the side was quiet, he...

We visited at lunchtime, we were not sufficiently impressed with the menu choice to eat here. However the main bar was very spacious, comfortable and friendly with regulars adding to the atmosphere. We were delighted to see a good pool room and dartboard both with chalk and darts available and spent a wonderful hour or so with those and nine...

We ate out here a couple of times while staying in Beer. The food was excellent, not over priced and very enjoyable. We sampled everything from pasta (blue cheese and mushroom linguini - exquisite), roast pork, fish to filled jacket potato. All cooked well. The beer and wine were also good. We first entered through the Public Bar,which is very...

We called for a quick cup of tea whilst touring the area. Dog friendly which always pleases us. It was a nice day so we sat on the patio area. From the outside it looks quite posh, but the price of a pot of tea for 2 was reasonable. When it arrived though, my cup had stains on and what...

The Sunday Carvery is great, plentiful meat (choice of moist turkey or beef when we went) and as much veg as you can manage. Sweets good, staff pleasant, reasonable price. However, midweek lunch was a different experience. We ordered at the bar, and opted to sit outside to enjoy the autumn sunshine. Unfortunately, the lady who served us really didn't...

We used to go here a lot but have dropped it lately because the fish portion especially the salmon fillet has become smaller and smaller to the point it hardly shows up on the plate. The veg is unseasoned and undressed. Warm only. Pity as used to be much better. Seating areas in bar are suited better for large groups...

We were staying close by in Seaton and came to the Dolphin Hotel for dinner. There is a fairly wide menu and a good choice. I knew immediately what I wanted as soon as I saw Skate and this was on the menu. It was cooked to perfection and tasted really lovely. It was served with what I can only...

I have been visiting the Dolphin Hotel, Beer, for over 30 years - so it is with great regret that I must write this rather mixed review which focuses largely on the deeply unpleasant refurbishment of the lounge bar and restaurant. First, I must say that the food here remains excellent - as does the service. The full English breakfast...
