"The ghost left us alone!"
It was an overnighter before the morning ferry to the Isles if Scilly. The Dolphin was very convenient for both the main line rail station and the ferry dock. From entering and throughout the stay the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a distinct feeling that they would go the "extra mile" in terms of customer service.
The room was a good size, clean, comfortable and a proper bathroom en-suite.
Thoughtfully the tea/coffee tray had still and sparkling water. Read less
Likes:
We decided to eat in. Great decision! The dinner was excellent.
Well kept beers and a good selection of whisky.
However, it was "extra good" as the staff are so friendly, attentive and helpful.
Dislikes:
Yes, the stay was too short!

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.
