About The Dolphin

The Dolphin in Sydenham is owned and managed by Inn Public, a small group of related, but very individual pubs in south-east London, each place with a vibrant life of its own.

While cherishing their distinctiveness, we believe that some things should always be the same. Every time and anywhere you visit us, you will find that our welcome is warm, the drinks are cold, and the food is delicious.

In our pubs you will meet great people, staff and customers alike, so you will always be in good company.

We’ve been around for over 15 years now and you reward us by coming back and letting us look after you every day.

Our mission is always to try our best to be exciting and different, as well as comfortable and familiar – your favourite local.
