Welcome to The Dolphin

The new independent in the scene around Newbury station where it’s all about being simply delicious, simply fresh, simply fun-lovin and definitely dandy. 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 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.



The Dolphin has a wonderful collection of spaces for eating and drinking each created for your different mood. We do private dining, meeting rooms, drinks parties, birthdays, weddings and so much more. We offer a range of specially curated private dining menus or offer personalised menus for larger groups.
