About The Dolphin Inn
We are a small family owned and family operated business, we are proud members of our community and concerned citizens of our environment. Our shared values and principles are central to our business and our values often go deeper than simply benefitting the family, but also the wider community in which we operate including projects supporting charities that fit our personal mission.
Our butcher in Aldeburgh ensures that all of our meat is not only sourced as locally as possible but also of the best quality. Our fish comes directly from the markets in Lowestoft sourced only from sustainable stocks. Our bread is from the famous Pump Street bakery in Orford and delivered fresh on a daily basis.
Our greengrocer in Leiston is able to offer some top locally grown produce whilst during the warmer months we have daily deliveries of fruit and veg that has been cut just minutes before it arrives from the local allotment just a stones throw away. Even the milk we use is from a local dairy.
It doesn’t stop with food - our offering on the bar also boasts some great local names. Aspall not only makes the vinegar you put on your chips but is much better known for its award winning cider. You can’t come to Suffolk and not have a pint of Adnams, from Southwold just up the coast.
Attentive and friendly staff, and the food is always delicious. Would recommend.
THe lady behind the bar was very helpful. I had a lovely glass of your house red, The food was all cooked from scratch & was very tasty & variant. Our group of 4 all enjoyed it. We all live away, 45 to 50 minutes so would be a day visit.
Always friendly and helpful service. The garlic mushrooms were particularly memorable.
Excellent food and venue
Great menu choice for all dietary requirements, great service and lovely surroundings
Always great value and cheerful service here. Despite being very busy, we were quickly shown to a table and after some ver brief confusion, orders quickly taken. We’ve always found the Dolphin great value for money and the perfect end to walk along the beach from Aldeburgh . The Sunday lunches are always delicious and represent great value for money. Despite quite a production line for the Sunday special, the beef (and pork) is always impeccably cooked, a reflection of the provenance of the ingredients and preparation.
Lovely meal, great service and very friendly atmosphere. Would most certainly come back again. Thank you.
A great meal and a great atmospherer. Worth the drive out.
First time any of us had been to the Dolphin Inn. We were all happy with our menu choices. It would be helpful to have the Fixed Prix menu on the same side as the other menus as only noticed that when ordering desserts.
Thank you. We enjoyed 2 meals there this weekend.
We had the fixed menu which was really good value. Would definitely return- the staff were excellent
We live in the Midlands but visit Suffolk quite often , The Dolphin is fast becoming our favourite place to have a meal .Food is always fresh and piping hot and the customer service is brilliant
Another great dinner at The Dolphin, thank you!
Always a pleasure to visit The Dolphin for Sunday lunch!
Excellent evening had by all
Lovely lunch. Set menu is very good value for money. Popular pub, great atmosphere .
The ambience at The Dolphin is extremely agreeable and the service friendly. A good menu to choose from with interesting daily specials. Lovely place to dine with friends, especially when the fire is blazing on a cold day!
Excellent lunch and service Thankyou
Wonderful meal!!! Really lovely! So excellent the staff and chefs gave us something not on the menu for my friend and me! It was wonderful!!! Thank you all very much!
Great food and friendly staff
Lovely dinner, staff did well at a hectic period!
lovely staff. good food and drink. vegetarian portions could be bigger. our food could have been warmer.
We were very impressed with the staff who served us and the speed that food and drink arrived. There were a couple of small points that my party made. When you have small children with you it is useful for them to have their food served first. The crumble was a little bit overcooked and had a faint taste of something savoury. Apart from that everyone was happy and felt it was good value and that you dealt with a large party very efficiently. Thank you.
Very friendly pub, delicious vegetarian and vegan options and dog friendly too!
