Ian Mapp left this review about The Dolphin Hotel

Great place for people watching and real ale - although most was gravity fed - which is not my preferred.

Draught Bass and Dartmoor Jail Ale were two on offer and in good nick.

Perfect place to sit outside on a summers evening.

Small building wedged between others overlooking the marina but looking a bit worn. Its very basic inside, with a flag/tiles floor, ill fitting furniture and little comfort, but with very good quality beer, deserving an extra mark

Quinno _ left this review about The Dolphin Hotel

Basic but popular drinkers pub with slate flooring, whitewashed walls, Octagon Brewery stained glass windows, ale direct from the cask, bar blockers, disgusting slush green ceiling and faintly chaotic service. Knocked-about inside but retains a harbourside character. Ales on were all regional staples – 2x St Austell (Tribute and a good drop of Proper Job), 2x Sharps (Doom Bar and Atlantic), Dartmoor Jail Ale and Skinners Betty Stogs – no sign of the Bass mentioned copiously elsewhere. The busiest pub we did on Saturday night, with a mixed clientele and a raucous atmosphere. Whilst the ale choice wasn’t much to get excited about, it’s certainly one of Plymouth’s more distinguished watering holes. 7.5

Called into this 2013 Good Beer Guide pub while in Plymouth for the beer festival. It is an old pub with character and well situated in the popular Barbican area. We had the well kept St Austell Tribute.

Old Blue left this review about Dolphin Hotel

A real drinkers' pub in the heart of the Barbican, full of local characters and very friendly with it. Basic, unspoiled interior. For many years renowned for an excellent pint of Bass straight from the barrel behind the bar, it now also has Tribute behind the bar, and Summer Lightning, Doombar and Abbott hand pumps. The hand pumps aren't connected to anything, so if you order one of these the staff will go round the back and get it out of the barrel for you. Undoubtedly one of the best pubs in Plymouth.
