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.


A boutique hotel designed as properly part of your whole stay. Coffee on the house downstairs when you arrive, take your bags upstairs and unwind when it suits you, come back down for drinking and eating and then when you go back it’s to relax … a big tv, great wifi, bottomless pillows and the most comfy bed. See you again at breakfast.
