About the hotel

The Dolphin Inn is a beautiful 16th century olde worlde country pub. It is nestled twixt Dartmoor and the coast in the heart of the South Hams near Bigbury on Sea. Featured in the AA Good Pub Guide 2008.

The Dolphin Inn serves a selection of home cooked meals using local produce and offers bed and breakfast accommodation in a traditional building opposite the pub. Take a table by the inglenook fireplaces and sample some warm hospitality and a glass of wine or some Real Ale or sit out in the garden before exploring the stunning South Devon Coastline. For instance, there is a circular two and half hour walk from the pub encompassing woodland, the estuary, the coast path and farmland. We are located in the village of Kingston with its thatched cottages, just one mile from the lovely Erme Estuary and Wonwell beach. For the adventurous, the Dolphin Inn is close to tourist beaches with surfing and windsurfing facilities. Fishing trips can also be arranged from the Erme Estuary and we are within a few miles of three golf courses.

The Dolphin Inn

We arrived at the hotel at 14.30 but there was no-one available to let us in until 18.00.

As the owner was away, the restaurant was closed.

We had not been told of any of this. There were no alternative places to eat in the vicinity - without driving a considerable distance. The staff informed us as a' favour' that they would provide us with meal - and presented us with 3 options. The food was good - but it was not what we would have chosen. I think this could have been a nice place to stay, but the fact that we were booked in when it was obvious they could not provide the necessary service left a sour taste in the mouth - never again.

The Kingston Experience

Fantastic back-in-time experience.

A quiet retreat in an unspoilt area. A cosy little room opposite the pub. A good breakfast and a brilliant host. Great walks down to the river and the sea. Would definitely come back again.
