Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Dolphin

Excellent, traditional Joule's pub with a compact bar supplemented by another small room at the back and a slightly larger one on the other side where the dartboard can also be found. With six handpumps on the counter, the brewery's Pale Ale, Pure Blonde, Shropshire Hop (£3.70) and That Choc Orange One were available plus Milestone Azacca as a guest and Old Rosie cider.

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.
