user reviews of the Dolphin Hotel, Swindon

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Will definitely concur with the rough and ready theme of previous posters. The Dolphin Hotel is a ‘no frills’ locals pub close to the McArthur Glen Outlet Village.
Internally a single long room with a central bar serving area. The whole place has a public bar feel with a wooden floor and wooden tables and chairs. There are three plazma screens for the sport (only two in operation on my visit,) a couple of fruit machines and a pool table at one end.
It’s an Arkells house as mentioned, with three handpumps on the bar, but only one was in operation dispensing 3B.
Definitely a bit of a working mens club feel on this particular Saturday lunchtime with the locals bringing in the tots in pushchairs whilst they have a pint. So not a smart pub, but as I had escaped the nearby Outlet Village to find a pub showing the early live Spurs game on Sky, the pub met this task perfectly.
Also a decent pint of 3B to boot and despite the locals matching the décor of the pub, they were perfectly friendly enough, even choosing to turn a blind eye when I got all excited at Spurs banging in 3..
