One of my favourite pubs in Weymouth is the Dolphin on Park Street, just across from the train station. This is always a welcoming pub and ideal for that first beer when I get off the train, and then again for a quick one or two before catching the train back. It is owned by the excellent Hopback brewery whose "Summer Lightning" is one of my favourite beers.
It was therefore a bit of a shock on my last visit to find that it had no draught beer on offer and a scant selection of bottled. The chatty barman apologetically informed me that there had been a problem with the delivery and they wouldn't have any until the weekend.
Doing a little post trip research I find that this has been quite a regular occurence recently - maybe they haven't been paying their bills??
But never mind the pub is still little corner local with a good atmosphere and I made do with a couple of the breweries bottled Taiphoon beers which, with its coriander and cumin flavourings, was a tasty alternative.
The pub is also a small hotel with five en-suite rooms and offers freebie WiFi and I'd certainly consider staying there if I ever need an overnight stop - but I'd phone first to check the beer situation!!
