A fantastic afternoon of blues music

Never heard the band before and wasn't disappointed. A huge pub that filled to the brim. Staff lovely under the pressure. A great cosy pub with great features.

In Broadstairs this is the best pub to go with your friends. The price of the bears worth it and the place is nice to have fun.

Old fashioned decor and a bit dark but overall very friendly and welcoming. Reasonably priced drinks and they do food as well. TV screens if you want to watch sport and it has a pool table as well

I felt very welcome from the get go! Always a pleasant night at the dolphin with the cosy, at-home atmosphere and the very friendly staff! The staff were very helpful in recommending drinks and overall just very welcoming, particularly the young boy and girl - Danielle and Olly If I remember correctly! Will definitely be going back.

(Of course, when it's busy, you wait until it's your turn to be served.) The place has got a couple of security guys, they are efficient and friendly even,... More

went after seeing summer fireworks and I think everybody had the same idea ! There was a band on but not very good - too "folky" for us. Staff great even though they were busy. Average prices

Friendly enough bar staff, interior a bit dark, poor quality picture of Euro 2016 on the TV nearest the bar. Disappointing range of bitter/ales.

Like going there during week. Nice pub, nice people. Very busy and full of young (referring to my age) people on weekends.
