Set in a conservation area, close to Suffolk’s Heritage Coast, The Dolphin burnt down in 1995 but was back, better than ever, in 1998. You’ll find real ales from Adnams, nearly 20 wines by the glass and a wide choice of bourbons and single malts in the bar, while the restaurant offers classic pub dishes and local produce. Get started with maple-glazed chorizo and cashews, and move on to grilled sardines, cherry tomatoes, capers, and wild nettle and pine nut pesto. Main courses might include Blythborough pork belly with baby carrots, red onions and mash, or lobster and crayfish linguine. Summer barbecues are held in the huge garden.
