Themed Evenings

Come and enjoy our themed evenings at The Dolphin

The Dolphin, Botley

The pub is situated in the middle of the quaint and historic village of Botley near Southampton, close to the River Hamble in Hampshire. 

We want everyone to feel at home at The Dolphin. Whether you're passing through the village and stopping for a quick lunch or celebrating with loved ones in the evening, or even popping after walk by the river with your dog, we have something to offer everyone. 

With Wadworth's quality ales on tap including the original ale 6X, a menu full of flavour and choice including pub classics, gluten free choices and Sunday Roasts and various nooks and crannies to cosy up in, The Dolphin is the perfect place to socialise any day or night of the week and regular themed nights. 

Steve and the rest of the team look forward to welcoming you to this great pub very soon!
