Welcome to The Dolphin

Our fun filled pub in the centre of Newbury .. with five boutique rooms and lots of space for private dinners, parties, meetings and more.  A house for the parched, the hungry, the sleepy and the opinionated located near to independent offices and shops, Hogan’s music, the Vue cinema;  a stones throw from Newbury racecourse, the Market Square, the Corn Exchange and beyond to Highclere Castle and the North Wessex Downs.

Our wonderful garden has three heated huts and a heated pergola and by using our App to order and pay you can remain safely in your seat should you wish!



Our five boutique rooms are fresh and simple with the most deliciously comfortable beds, rainfall showers, great wifi, laptop safes, cotton sheets, limitless pillows and bramble soaps.
