The room was extremely clean and quite spacious and the bathroom was a good size. We where not shown the room . When we wanted to go out we had to get past a load of people on the stairs etc. This is NOT A HOTEL, this is a PUB and we would not recommend this for a quite weekend....

Martin & Liz did a great job getting this pub back on track , sadly there not there now and it's for sale , every time I go in it just seems to be going down , hence the title there seems to be dogs all over the place, 1 belongs to the pub & just seems to roam round...

Met friends in Whitby for my 40th birthday and all met up in The Dolphin which soon became a hotspot for all of us over the weekend. Atmosphere great, mixture of families, couples, friends and dog walkers. Staff very friendly, professional and service was excellent. Central location and also offer accomodation. Lovely pub and ale kept well too.

Really disappointing. Very small portions, stale bread, charged £4 for small pot of tea for two. Had to ask for milk for tea, had to ask for tomato ketchup, asked for some hot water as teapot only held one cup each. No one asked if the meal was alright, if we wanted white or brown bread, overall really poor.

Had a lovely short break, the staff were helpful,allowing luggage to be left there if room was not ready, breakfast is great, a range of options from full english down to just toast if thats all yo want(the scrambled egg and smoked salmon is excellent).The location is central in Whitby with a variety of restaurants and pubs close by.

Searched for a pub that allowed dogs and this seemed well reviewed. It was wet and windy outside so the warm interior was welcome. There is a lower level bar where dogs are allowed and a mezzanine where there are not. We had a variety of lunchtime dishes and all were hot, good portions and nicely cooked. The location is...

We visited Whitby for the day as part of a recent holiday and it was raining so we wanted somewhere central to go for something to eat. There was myself, the good lady, our baby (with pram) and the dog. We found The Dolphin via an online "dog friendly pubs" search. The location was superb, right next to the harbour...
