Welcome to The Dolphin ...

We’re Portsmouth's oldest pub, with a window signed by Lord Nelson himself. We are traditional but with modern essentials, located right in the heart of the city. 

We offer free Wi-Fi, great food and a varied range of real ales and refreshing beers. We’ve also carefully selected a wide range of premium gins to give you the chance to find your favourite to enjoy your perfect G&T. Perfect with a Fever Tree tonic, plenty of ice and the ideal garnish to complement the gins.

The Dolphin is equipped with a fantastic beer garden to the back of our pub, perfect for those spring and summer evenings. Families with young children are welcome to dine with us until 8pm. We're also dog friendly.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

We’ve carefully selected a wide range of premium gins to give you the chance to find your favourite to enjoy your perfect G&T. Perfect with a Fever Tree tonic, plenty of ice and the ideal garnish to complement the gins, we think you’ll find them ‘ginspirational’.

Try a classic old school gin, such as Brokers; or we love the big juniper hit from Portobello Road and the innovative Monkey 47 from Germany with added cranberries. Go on … discover something different
