Overview

Situated directly opposite Combe Martin beach, Downstairs our bar area is a great place to relax with a drink, we have a lovely open log fire all day. We allow dogs in the bar area, so why not pop in for a drink after a walk on the beach. We also have FREE WIFI and a FREE pool table for our customers and a dart board. We host various events, Live Music, Pool tournaments, Darts competitions, theme nights etc Our bistro upstairs has some of the best views in the area, looking directly over the bay. With a delicious selection of homemade meals and desserts, and a great wine list, we advise booking if you would like to eat, as since we have opened we have been very popular! Bar meals are also served downstairs Wednesday - Saturday and on Sundays we have a Carvery. So if you would like a drink and something to eat in a friendly atmosphere come along to The Dolphin.

Their website and their leaflets all say serving breakfast from 9am - 3pm Tuesday to Sunday. But sadly it isn’t. Planned to have breakfast on a Friday at 10am but it was still shut. It’s a shame as it looks quite nice from the outside...More

We recently holidayed in Combe Martin & spent time in the cool beer garden, friendly & welcoming staff & both our German shepherds were always made welcome. Well worth a visit if you in Combe Martin

Loud and uncouth clientele. Very down market. Shame because it’s a lovely town and the food was very good. It all depends on your mood and expectations.
