At The Dolphin

Mothering Sunday

11th March

What perfect way to treat Mum and Grandma this Mothering Sunday than with a meal in our restaurant. It offers fantastic value with our “Roast and Crumble” deal which is still just 14.95. A stroll around the meare, in hopefully some spring sunshine, perhaps a bit of site seeing at the windmill and house in the clouds before sitting down to some of our delicious Salter and King beef and pork.  We do get incredibly busy today so please make sure that you book your table well in advance to not have any disappointed people. Call us to book.. 01728 454994.

Beach Clean

30th March - Good Friday

Once again we play host to Thorpeness’ annual beach clean on Good Friday. Last year saw an enormous amount of people come and volunteer to help make our beaches and common and cleaner place. We have seen a lot of coverage on TV and social media over the past year about the damage that rubbish, plastic in particular, does to the wildlife in our seas. That’s why this year it is more important than ever to have out biggest turnout ever to help maintain our beaches. Everybody meets here at The Dolphin for a warming tea or coffee at 10.30am before heading out in teams to litter-pick their designated areas. After an hour or two head back to us for a hot dog. We encourage people to tell some fantasy stories about their unusual find too. Bring the whole family along.
