The Dolphin opens
The Dolphin on Bartholomew Street has swam into action and opened today.
After closing last year, its new owners have dug deep and unleashed a fantastic new venue on the folk of Newbury.
The low key opening after the bank holiday will have disappointed some who were hoping to sample what the owners describe as the best beer garden in Newbury over the roasting weekend.
The beer garden features both a selection of tables to enjoy the sun and a number of beach huts to snuggle in on the colder nights.
As well as a wide selection of drink options at the fully stocked bar, the Dolphin also offers a big menu. Although not offering a full menu tonight, the sample of food on offer tonight set a high bench mark.
Other options include fish and chips, duck salad, all day brunch, spiced roasted cauliflower and mackerel with pesto to name just a few.
Management at the pub reckon they will be running their full Dolphin offering from Friday.
