The Dolphin Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Sprinkled with regatta and rugby memorabilia, The Dolphin's interior is interesting and unpretentious. Newton Ferrers' residents frequently visit the popular premises, one of Yachting Monthly's top 40 favourite pubs in 2009, to try the local cuisine or partake in a card game or two. On the menu, you'll find a selection of delicious options to start; we tried the melted buffalo mozzarella on toast with juicy tomatoes and a homemade fragrant basil pesto - warm and gooey yet light enough to whet the appetite. Indulging further, we opted for main courses of spice-crusted rack of lamb with minted gravy, and freshly fried golden fish cakes, packed with crayfish and smoked haddock. As if that wasn't enough, a luxuriously rich chocolate cake with lashings of whisky ice cream - a St Patrick's Day tribute - completed a fabulous meal.
An additional eating area behind the bar is occasionally transformed into an activity spot to hold darts competitions for some extra fun. Alternatively, take a seat in the cosy beamed area and complete your evening by taking in some fresh sea air and appreciating the picturesque scenery.
