The Dolphin in Newbury is more than just this year’s Muddy Award-winning bar, it’s serves top nosh and has five swanky rooms, each one kitted out with super-comfy beds, marshmallow soft pillows and lush Bramley toiletries. So you can eat, drink and stagger to bed for a night of quality zzzzz.
We know how tiring this time of year can be, so we’re calling time out and giving one lucky Muddy reader the chance to enjoy a Saturday night with a significant friend in one of our bestest rooms, after a delicious three course meal, worth around £250. All on the house!
Each room is individually decorated with a very much home from home feel. We have magazines! Lego sets & one room even has its own record player & vinyl for those boogie nights.
The Dolphin like to consider all guests are friends, so breakfast is an informal affair, much as it would be if you are overnighting at besties. Wander down to the Fish Tank to help yourselves and fix yourself a coffee from the Nespresso machine. If you’re heads not banging you can try and work out the fishy references. Weather guru (and 1987 hurricane denier) Michael Fish should be an easy one!
Food is created by Chef Toby Barrett, who recently returned from a four-year stint cooking in Hong Kong. Enjoy delicious small plates or go the whole hog with an epic three-courser and a fantastic bottle of wine from Davy’s of London.
