Not only is this a lovely tavern the meal are special as well. We highly recommend booking a table for dinner. Fresh catch of the day would be just the right thing to do!

The Dolphin Tavern is a great place to spend a cosy evening catching up over a hearty meal in a nice local pub/restaurant. Staff were really friendly and so were the other guests! Food was tasty and quick and the Cornish cider was also lovely....More

We stayed for one night and loved the accommodation. The room was well proportioned with sea views and an amazing shower. The room was well decorated and spotlessly clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome throughout the stay....More
