We visited the Dolphin with friends having been here alone a year or so ago and enjoying the experience. We ordered fish and chips, mister fritto , crab sandwich and falafel burger. We all enjoyed our meals and thought they were very well presented and good value (my fish and chips was substituted for a fish burger but it wasn't a problem and they compensated with a bowl of mushy peas and onion rings). The landlady was very chatty and made us feel welcome. Our friends also enjoyed their choices, the crab sandwich in particular was very appetising (the landlady said it was the best in Dartmouth, and she is probably right on this evidence), the mister fritto was packed with fresh fish, and the falafel burger very tasty. All meals were presented very well and were appetising. The beer (mostly Tribute ) was well kept and at £3.80 a little rich for my taste reflected the market in Dartmouth (we paid £4 in another pub later on). All in all a great experience and we and our friends both said we will return when next in Dartmouth.
Just one tip meant as constructive criticism - the gents toilets could do with a bit of a spruce up (I don't mind the collage of half-clad ladies) the toilet had a notice saying "sorry out of order" in what looked like permanent marker but no indication of an alternative facility, and get rid of the smelly carpet on the stairs, otherwise it would have been a five star review.
