The Dolphin dates back to 1530AD, allegedly making it the oldest in Derby. It was constructed a good thirty years before even potatoes and tobacco were introduced to the country!
The quaint picturesque pub stands at the junction of Queens Street and Full Street, part of which was known as Nanny Tags Lane.
It has a good selection of mainstream ales including Timothy Taylor Boltmaker, Otter Ales Amber, Sharps Doom Bar and Abbot Ale
Other pubs you might want to check out in Derby (although we don’t think they qualify as an official HPT Trail pub) include:
The Alexandra Hotel - one for the railway enthusiasts
Smithfield Ale House - Dog friendly
The Furnace Inn - Shiny Brewing pub
