Grim, miserable, overpriced and decades out of date. Greeted by miserable bar staff and then greeted by an even worse price for a poor pint!!. Very dirty surroundings, clearly survives due to high pricing as certainly not by volumes sold as quiet compared to other pubs. Wont be going back and will be amazed if it survives!, this is one poor pub too many.

Visited this pub again recently. Its undergone a tasteful refit. Just the place for a lunch time meal, with food freshly cooked and a well stocked bar. A perfect place for a hassle free night out.

Very nice pub, unique to the town in all it's Elvis & other displays dotted round the pub.
Welcoming staff, very nice.

This is a very well run pub, one of the very few civilised place in Littlehampton where all the male and female staff treat the customers with respect and kindness. It is professionally run to very high standards. Very good food, kind and helpful bar staff, excellent beer, very reasonable prices. The pub has great character, and a lovely friendly atmosphere. Ellie and Katie are a lovely couple, and it is very sad that certain homophobic plonkers have been deliberately trying to tarnish it's reputation by telling absolute total porkies about this place! Personally, I would like to see them prosecuted under the Public Order Act, Sect 4.5.

The Dolphin is, without doubt, the best traditional English pub in the entire town and for miles around. Go there, taste the excellent beer, enjoy the lovely food, soak up the atmosphere and see for yourself! This pub is an traditional English Gem!

I've just come across this site by accident so thought I'd have a look, I moved to Littlehampton last year so I thought I'd have a look at what's been written about the pubs that have closed down as well as the few that have remained open. What I didn't expect to see was an all out personal attack on a person in a pub . It would have been bad enough to be pub itself but come on ,as the review policy (some people should read it), honest feedback,come on folks,get a grip ,get a life.
I found The Dolphin just a few months ago needed a quiet place to have lunch and a drink with the missus, we had an excellently cooked and presented meal ,with great service and at a great price too. The pub is very different and full of character ,we both felt very much at home. Since then have made several return visits and have never been less than excellently pleased with the service in general. I have found the staff to be very accomodating ,for instance when several friends of ours came to visit and we went for Sunday lunch it was no problem for the staff to put two tables together for us all. It's little things like that that make all the difference as far as I'm concerned.
So as a new comer to the area and the pub I would like to clearly and fairly add, the food is excellent, well cooked and presented and very fairly priced.
The drinks choice is varied and for a brewery tied pub not a bad price either.
The staff are well trained and very customer friendly. The pub itself is clean, bubbling over with character and is very well run. In fact a pub very well worth a visit , see it for yourself and you will know what I mean. I'lI give this pub a 10* star rating
