The Dolphin Inn

The Dolphin sits squarely in the middle of St Marychurchs’ precinct. After 24 years looking after peoples’ hair and being a regular user of the pub, Ashley decided he liked it so much he bought it. He took it over in December 2010 and has set about refurbishing the place both inside and out. In addition to this The Dolphin now does food! Served from midday til 9:00pm Tuesday-Saturday and from 1:00pm til 8:00pm on a Sunday (Ashley has the day off on a Monday) a wide selection of starters, sandwiches, light lunches or main meals are available to you. From mussels mariniere, pate and toast to a cheese and tomato sandwich or tagliatelle pasta, there should be something here to suit everyone. There are daily deals of two 10oz rump steaks for £17. Also available are main meals 2 for £12. There’s also a childrens menu. Everything is home cooked and freshly produced to order so you may have to wait a little bit longer if the pub is busy but it will be worth it. Pub opening hours are from 11:00am til midnight every day except Sunday when the pub opens at midday. This is a non-sport pub so don’t expect to find endless replays of long forgotten football matches that nobody wants to watch being played at deafening volume! Ales on offer include Otter, Betty Stogs and Trelawany as well as guest ales while the cider is provided by Aspalls and Thatchers Gold. The pub is family run and family friendly so feel free to bring the kids along. The menus are below: The Dolphin 001 The Dolphin 003

Driftwood Café

Joss White and Kayleigh Walsh are the new owners of Driftwood Café in St Marychurch and have tried to make the café unique in the precinct for its emphasis on quality, presentation and the difference in its menu. The café is light and airy and features a typical front of house layout with a lovely relaxing chill-out room to the rear where you can lounge away a couple of hours munching on homemade cakes, drinking a selection of teas and coffees or sampling a range of organic wines. As Joss has been the chef for the last couple of years and Kayleigh has been working out in the front of the café, it’s all change but no change here.

A daily special of a cake and a cuppa (tea or coffee) for £3.50 is available and on Saturdays why not treat yourself to 2 courses and a glass of wine or a beer for just £10. Everything is cooked freshly and prepared on the premises using locally sourced produce where possible. All dietary requirements are catered for, the cakes are all gluten-free and there are plenty of vegetarian options on the menu. Wifi is available for free so you can pick up your emails or surf the net and the cafe can be hired at any time for special occasions and events. Opening hours are Monday – Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm.

Keep your eyes peeled for their monthly one evening special dinners which have proved to be hugely popular and require booking and registration on their email list here

Our Aim

Whatever you're here for, business or the pleasure of watching the palm trees sway on a hazy day on The English Riviera while indulging in our nascent café society, sipping on a latté round the harbour or you're desperate to get in the pub because football kicks off in 10 minutes and you still don't know where to go yet and you need to line your stomach for the hard day/night of drinking ahead, you've come to the right place. Settle down, kick back and have a good old click around our website. We hope you enjoy it and find what you are looking for.
