Good Beer Guide 2019 Entry and easily the best of the beer from the four establishments visited on our mini break.

TT Landlord in tip top condition - and topped up from a little half glass after pulling. Nice touch!

Seemed very popular with diners.

Quirky interior - plenty of car related metallic adverts and little Michelin men balanced on the dado rails.

Nice experience.

Nice place but very food - oriented. Beer choice was ok but not great with only one offering from a Kent micro (Gadd''s) along with the usual boring stuff. Didn''t try the food but it looked great and the service was good. Would return for a meal but not just to drink.

Dropped by on my way to the station and dropped by forgetting to check my previous comments regarding the place. The small bit that seemed to be for non-diners was populated by people waiting for their tables and although I had a pleasant conversation with some of them this is a dining establishment where drinkers are tolerated and not a pub. Ale selection was pretty bland Doombar, Taylors etc. (Timothy Taylors must now be one the UKs blandest ales) as was quality with no local brews on offer.

Not a pub as I know it.
its a café/bar/eating place, big wine list, limited draught beer.

I had a pint (568ml) of old rosy cider , £ 4-35.

the first thing the barman says to customers as they get to the bar is
" are you eating "
says it all.

With the snow starting to full quite rapidly the wife and I headed off to pub number 2, the thoroughly modern with lots of old fashioned twists...The Dolphin.

5 hand pumps with 3 ales and 2 ciders on. The ale choices were Sharps Doombar, Timothy Taylor Landlord and my choice which was Ramsgate Brewery Uberhop @ 5.2%. A very good pint and a new one for me. The ciders were both from Westons, Old Rosie and Rosie's Pig.

There's an extensive list of Whiskey, Whisky and Bourbons with a total of 26 listed and all served in 35ml measures. A fact that is proudly displayed!

The 1970's style price board displaying the prices and selections of wine, gin and snacks is superb and something that had me thinking of my childhood.

A very nicely decorated pub with special mention of the collection of Home pride Fred's, Michelin Men & Bertie Bassett's. Some very good advertising signs with an attractive Walls Ice Cream & Champion Spark plugs one at the far end of the bar.

The old fashioned coloured letters spelling The Dolphin above the bar are excellent and in fantastic condition, really adding a nice touch.

There’s a selection of board games available. Food also served but I was a bit early and didn't see any being served.

A very good pub and one I would like to return to.
