We visited the long bar on the Sunday, to have a drink and watch the rugby match England v Wales, , on arrival we were made to feel very welcome by the staff and also the regular customers...

The Dolphin Hotel is a mainstay of Beer. It is one of the best pub's around and I love to visit it every time I am there. I have not stayed in the rooms, but going to the Dolphin has never disappointed. Visited in 2001, 2005, 2010, 2014, 2016. Always consistent. Lovely family dinner here last time. Amazing staff.

We went to the hotel for a birthday treat for my daughter's birthday this lunchtime and the food was excellent. I had roast beef, 6 slices and so many potatoes and fresh vegetables I couldn't finish it and my hubby and daughter had the homemade steak and kidney pie, enough to feed at least 6 people. All piping hot in...

The Dolphin Hotel in Beer may not be the nearest Pub to the beach, but it is certainly the best. We are lucky enough to live only 15 minutes away in Honiton, and we visit the very pretty fishing village of Beer often. At weekends we enjoy the very good Full English Breakfasts which are available in the bars until...

Stopped here for Sunday lunch. The carvery was excellent. Upon entry to the building you are pointed by arrows on the walls towards the function room for the carvery. You can sit at any available table you wish. However, there are no clear instructions on how to order or pay for the carvery. We found a table to our liking...
