Chris the bar manager has been keen for some time to do a breakfast operation. Nothing too tricky really, as the bar kitchen is fine and easy to work. So we’re giving it a try with effect from next weekend (Whitsun). This is looking like 8am start for a couple of hours. Kids menu, English breakfast or Mega breakfast. Prices will be competitive with Beach Road. Although it would be nice if there were queues we don’t really know how it will pan out, so you may have to adopt an understanding attitude. The person in charge of the breakfast kitchen is Tracey (who is the lady who has been in charge of the home cooking menu and seems to be doiong a super job).
Then we need some feedback about takeaway beer. We can get those sort of 2 pint containers that can be taken out, but it may be that if the call is to take a drink out when you want to watch a film or whatever back in the accomodation this might be an idea. It would just have to be the normal pump price because the containers cost a bit.
Anyway, a bit of reaction would help!
An update here about the Dolphin Bar. New beer suppliers as from end June. We have to have them as we are part of a buying group (Norwich Inns) and have to go with the majority vote. Many of the beers won’t change, but there are bound to be a few substitutions – no decisions taken yet. If anybody has any views about San Miguel lager, Carlsberg, Tetley Smooth, Boddingtons, Adnams Southwold or Elgoods Dark Mild then a bit of feedback would help.
We took on a new cooking person just recently – Tracey. She’s a proper cook and has added a lot of the traditional sort of stuff (pie with all sorts of fillings, mash etc) and actually makes it up on a daily basis. Good reports from the customers.
Now that Easter is over (and its probably one we would all like to forget!) we thought we’d provide a quick update to everyone regarding the entertainment for May 2013 in The Dolphin Bar. We’ve been busy finding new entertainment acts, adding new dishes to our menu and will be serving Sunday lunches throughout the main season and the Bank Holiday periods.
Early May Bank Holiday Weekend:
Friday 3rd May: Quiz night plus Karaoke and home cooked special dishes.
Saturday 4th May: New to The Dolphin – Mr Graham McGrotty. – Singer, guitarist and overall entertainer!
Sunday 5th May: Sunday lunch being served (12-3 pm) with Mr Gary Page providing the night time entertainment.
Monday 6th May: Karaoke with Chris.
Spring Bank Holiday Weekend:
Friday 24th May: Karaoke with Chris.
Saturday 25th May: The wonderful Susan Jayne.
Sunday 26th May: Sunday lunch being served (12-3pm) and the nightly entertainment being provided as Karaoke with Chris.
Monday 27th May: New to The Dolphin – Mr Bobby Graham.
As usual keeping checking out this blog as we keep you updated with further developments as the season progresses!
Here we are on 22nd March. Good Friday a week today. But no sign of an improvement in the weather yet , and the forecast isn’t too good for the weekend. The water to the static caravans has all been turned on of course so if it gets really cold in the next few days then we are still open to a frozen pipes problem.
Apart from that, all looking OK. The bar price increase is due to come into effect soon (it only happens olnce a year!) and will of course take into account the chancellor’s small duty reduction.
We’re now intending to post updates to this blog on a regular basis.
