Old Boots left this review about The Dolphin

Double fronted Joules pub, two rooms as expected, right is L shaped, a bit larger and has the counter, left is cosy with bench seating, cast iron based tables and wooden stools - they do reserve tables as it’s more than a bit foody. In another pet hate the tables are candle powered. Part of the Joules range is complemented by other brewers wares, the beer was ok not outstanding and I’m a fan of Joules. The pub was full of extravagant thirty somethings so not to my taste on a Friday night, especially when one of them is celebrating a thirtieth birthday - big deal I’ve done that twice, hence miserable old git tag applies. Unusable dart board in the smaller room, the former smoke room according to the etched window. Probably OK in quieter periods.

A nice pub. Under the bridge from the station and up the road, this is a Joules pub and a pretty good one. 6 handpumps on the bar with one cider, and 5 for real ale. There were 3 Joules beers on but 2 weren't your usual fare - Moon Madness and Pure Blonde being the ones I don't usually see. The pub is basically J-shaped inside and split into 2 areas. I liked it.

Another winning pub from Joules, this one has been opened up into a single room although the original bar areas can still be picked out with the wooden floored public on the left and tiled saloon on the right. One major plus point for me was that I couldn't see or hear a TV screen. There were a few in having a beer on the way home from work on my late afternoon visit.
There was a cider on offer and an Arbor keg. Casks were Joule's Pale, Blonde & Shropshire Hop, Bewdley Sir Keith Park and a Purple Moose offering with a New Zealand sounding name. I went for the Bewdley and Purple Moose beers (£3.00) both of which were excellent.
This is one I would definitely come back to.
