Join us as we say good bye to another summer in Thorpeness. The Regatta is a night like no other in Thorpeness. Join in the festivities with boat races on the meare, watching the brilliantly decorated floats, or dancing the night away in our garden. With BBQ all day at The Dolphin there is no excuses for not popping in for a bite to eat. At 9pm one of the best firework displays across the country kicks off with an almighty bang!! After the fireworks we will have a live band performing in the garden to top the evening off.

24th December – Christmas Eve Bash
We have become somewhat famed for our bash on Christmas Eve. So why change something if it isn’t broken? The mulled wine will be steaming in the bar, chestnuts will be cracking and the smell of pulled pork will fill the garden as the hog is carved to keep that hunger at bay until the big day. Of course Santa will make time for us in his busy schedule again to dish out some presents to the kids. With carol singing from 6pm too there’s plenty to keep you busy.
25th December – Christmas Day
We are now taking bookings for the big day!! We do fill up very quickly though – usually by the end of August!! This years menu has been kept the same great price as last year.. Christmas Day Menu 2018 – Vegetarian Christmas Day Menu
26th December – Boxing Day
We are open for lunch today to help fill that hole that you might have after Christmas. Who actually is hungry on Boxing Day? We eat because it’s Christmas and it’s what we have to do of course!! Maybe just a sloe gin at the bar to warm the cockles after a bracing Boxing Day walk
