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

Quite an attractive, if old-fashioned, side-street Irish pub retaining some interesting historic features. The main entrance on the corner leads into the larger public bar, whereas the less-obvious side door along Hastings Street accesses the lounge bar / 'restaurant'. Both are simply furnished, with basic traditional decor. Just Greene King IPA from one of the pair of handpumps (and adorned with Six Nations tat at that) in the right-hand bar on this visit, but the landlord was as welcoming as usual and we were offered a round of free St Paddy's Day +1 mini-Guinnesses so you can't argue about the hospitality here. So, hardly exciting, but an option for a quiet pint if waiting for a train from the nearby railway termini.

Many years since I’ve been to the Dolphin, it hasn’t really changed internally and still has 2 different bar areas, an upper and lower area separated by the stairs down to the gents toilets.

St Austall Tribute was the only ale on which I didn't fancy so I went onto bottles of Kippenberger Fruit Cider, fine to start with but after 2 they become rather sweet and sickly, this coupled with the numerous pints I'd consumed all day.

We stopped for several hours, packed with lots of Spurs lads after their semi final defeat, boxing on the tv helped wile the evening away.

A decent evening, I may revisit again when I'm not so under the influence.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Dolphin

A traditional and basic pub, that looks as though nothing has been altered in a good few years. Greene King IPA and Fullers Pride seem to be the two main stays beer wise, so I went for the Pride, which was in good shape and served from the down to earth and friendly manageress. The bar counter top was unusual in the fact that the bar top was in red leather. This pub satisfied my curiosity for a visit, but nothing adventurous beer wise would draw me back.
