Dolphin Inn

Located in the heart of Thorpeness the Dolphin is a traditional village inn offering good food.

Opening Season

Located in the unique seaside village of Thorpeness, the Dolphin Inn is popular and well known to the locals for its relaxed, friendly service and delicious seasonal food, most of it sourced from the immediate area. The head chef is passionate about local produce and the kitchen not only creates a daily changing menu for the restaurant using some of the best local producers but makes and supplies the village store, attached to the Dolphin Inn, with chutneys, jams, pies and pastries. As a free house the bar dispenses award winning real ales all sourced locally from independent producers including Adnams, Brandon brewery and Crouch Vale. We have developed an excellent wine list with wines sourced from some of the best cellars around the world featuring alongside a large selection of bourbons, single malts and port. A roaring log fire in the winter, a huge garden with barbeques in the summer and well appointed four star en-suite bedrooms, this is a genuine pub where you can expect great food and great beer served in a warm friendly environment. The Dolphin Inn, the hub of the local community is just a short stroll from the beach, the House in the Clouds and the Meare, a popular boating lake.
