Komakino . left this review about The Dolphin Inn

Upon entering from Main Road you are confronted by glass cabinets with various bottles of Jack Daniels and Corgi cars, inside there's a further glass cabinet full of JD Zippo lighters, the tables are wooden-topped and iron-legged and embossed with the JD logo, and the guv'nor sported a 'Jack Lives Here' tee along with a JD logo tattoo on the back of one of his calves. Tennessee sour mash whiskey aside, this is a smallish pub which was likely a two-roomer in a previous life(a former entrance from the High Street is now blocked off). A classic L-shape, with a small bar occupying the corner of the 'L', seating comprises the aforementioned tables along with bench seating built into the three bay windows, individual leather armchair seats and tall, thin Magners-embossed upright barrels along with obligatory steel-legged, leather-seated stools. A large, open fireplace contained a row of darting trophies on its mantelpiece. The single ale was Directors, which came in at £1.85 for a half and was in good shape. Handful of old boys enjoying a Sunday lunchtime pint or two with an England Test match playing on a large screen in the background. Not one to actively seek out, but if you're into JD, you'll love it in here.
