Head to the heart of Poole’s Dolphin shopping centre and you’ll find the appropriately named Delfino Lounge. Meaning ‘dolphin’ in Italian, Delfino Lounge is a symbol of fun and friendliness, and the perfect setting for get-togethers with friends, family and your special someone. The breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are designed to suit all palates, from carnivore to vegan and gluten free – plus coffees, cakes and cocktails are served all day.
Delfino Lounge has room for 180 guests inside and 30 guests outside, with large concertina doors to let the sun shine throughout. This cosy retreat is spread over two levels, featuring an eclectic mix of cherished photographs, paintings, mirrors and statement lighting (check out the pink LEDs upstairs). There is also a mural at the back of the bar, which features dolphins and a tribute to Poole’s heritage as one of the main D-Day landing bases.
