Don't let historic Dolphin pub die
How sad the historic old inn The Dolphin has a 'pub to let' sign on its wall.
Will this old pub become another of the 5,800 pubs that have closed in the past five years?
The historic old inn has probably been dispensing beer since 1728, when such pubs would have been a welcome sight to the gangs of men who hauled the barges between Bath and Bristol.
Will The Dolphin become yet another victim of the beer escalator tax?

Ironically, in opposition, both the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats campaigned to halt this hike.
How differently politicians behave in power.
Will George Osborne's budget halt this hike? Is it fair the treasury takes a third of every pint sold?
Not all pubs are like the Bell, which will probably sell for a fabulous price. Many pubs struggle. My local, The Weston, survives by serving excellent food and staging popular 'tribute' nights.
How many more of our pubs will close, haemorrhaging jobs for young people?
The old Dolphin has seen many countless thousands of customers over the years from the early barges, from Dutch Graef's island Brass Mill, from the Georgian woollen mills, right through to American soldiers in the war, who thought it 'quaint'. What a pity if it dies because greedy government men don't know when to stop bleeding an industry dry.
