"Fantastic room, staff and value for money."
Was looked after from the moment I arrived until the moment I left. As a single traveller you often get pushed up a corner and forgotten about but at the Dolphin I was looked after really well.… Read more

Likes:
The room was brilliant, it overlooks the harbour and I had a great view of the Scillonian coming in and Gry Maritha going out. The food was excellent and the staff are lovely.
Dislikes:
I couldn't fault anything at all!!

The awe-inspiring sense of history greets you as you enter The Dolphin Tavern, with the past echoing in the aged granite walls, the intriguing shipping artifacts, and a warm atmosphere that makes you feel immediately at home.

In 1585 the tavern served as John Hawkin's HQ, recruiting Cornishmen to fight in the Armada, Sir Walter Raleigh is thought to have smoked the first pipe of tobacco in England here, and the tavern was used as a courtroom for centuries following. So legend says, it is also home to three spirits.

This long and colourful history makes a visit to The Dolphin Tavern a unique experience.
