Fantastic meal, polite staff and great atmosphere. We were not rushed and it was great value! We love the Dolphin!
Booked a table for 7.30pm. We were all late but they held the table and we were then not rushed out. Pleasant service - tasty food.
Great food great value.
Lovely pub, great beer, good food. Reasonable price.
Good food reasonably priced. Wine OK. Modest selection of real ales.
Lovely food and friendly staff
Rabbit pie with barely any filling, dry fish and chips verging on burnt. It's been a year or so since I visited amd standard of food used to be much better.
Excellent as always.

My favourite pub in South London
My favourite pub in London full stop
The Dolphin in Sydenham has had lovely food now quite some time. Leave plenty of time, no one rushes in this place.
Great as always.
We had a beautiful Sunday roast for Mother’s Day. Our daughter has recently moved in to the area and we struck lucky when we chose The Dolphin. Excellent service and knowledgeable about the gin they serve. All waiting staff were lovely . Thankyou for a great meal
A great Sunday lunch with crispy Yorkshire puddings and very tasty gravy. Friendly service too!
Recently moved into the area and love the ambience in the Dolphin, have now had six meals and they are always very good. Have no problem in inviting people for a meal or drink as it is a cosy friendly London pub! Have already got another two bookings!
We arrived on sunday for lunch, it was not very busy, staff were helpful. The lunch arrived and was tasty. We then ordered a crumble and a bowl of ice cream which took 30 minutes to arrive. Our lunchtime experience for a roast dinner and desert for 2 children was 2 hours. Good food, attentive staff but very slow.
Food was good, service was very good. Sound levels a bit loud music wise as we were here to chat and catchup not a night club. Poor veggie options. The nut roast had run out (make more) and the only other option was Gnnochi. Why do restaurants just make a token effort for veggies?
Good meal, good service and good friendly atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a little pricey but the service did make up for that. Would definitely come back for dinner or drinks again. Nice having a local restaurant/pub that looked nice and wasn’t run down like a lot in the area.
Really nice Sunday lunch and nice, friendly staff. Food was excellent - we all felt that it was a bit cheap of them not to offer Yorkshire pudding with each option though (especially when as soon as you order they ask you if you want to add a Yorkshire pudding). A little pricey and probably at the very top end of what I'm willing to pay for a pub Sunday lunch, but no complaints about the food itself. Personally I'd rather order at the bar than have table service when eating in a pub, as it makes payment easier, so if I was them I'd lose the table ordering system.
Always great. We love it here. Service, food and beer always great!
Friendly atmosphere and very tasty roast dinners with 3 options to choose from. The treacle tart was a bit dry but the others in the group said the plum crumble and the real mint ice cream were excellent. Would definitely recommend this pub for a lazy lunch!
Sunday roast veg was boring and cabbage out of date
I take friends here when they visit and have never been disappointed.
A nice looking and feeling pub, however the limited Sunday lunch menu for non-meat eaters is very disappointing.
A nut roast in 2017 is woefully outdated, and personally, as someone with a nut allergy, not even an option.
Service was slow although there was only one other table who were being served. Towards the end of the meal we got the feeling they wanted us to finish quickly and be gone!!
The music was too loud which was a shame because the food was very good
