Took mother-in-law here for her Birthday before going to the Minnack. What a fantastic meal. Wonderful service from a lovely young man behind the bar, (meant to get his name), and a lovely table overlooking the harbour.
Food was delicious and the sizzling steak and prawn dishes were just that. My rump steak was cooked to perfection and tender as anything.
Raspberry pavlova was just scrummy (yes that is a word), I could have eaten another serving of it.
This was our first time eating here after several attempts in the summer (very popular establishment) and we will be back.
Thank you Dolphin Tavern.

Popped in hoping for a table for 14 + dogs and we were pleasantly made to feel welcome which is not always the case with large parties. Good food, well delivered and decent price.

Good food and service. Very nice surroundings. A little pricey for what you get but I guess it was in line with similar places..

Between the harbour and the promenade on the main road. Good hearty food served fast. Nice beers - try the Cornish

Very friendly and helpful staff.

Food tasty and well presented. Good selection of local beers.

Outside tables are close to the busy road and the sea defenses block out mush sunlight and form a bit of a wind tunnel.
