RIP Billy Holmes, no doubt a lot of posters on ATD will have seen Billy propping up the bar or serving behind it over the years. I last spoke with him about three years ago when one midweek afternoon the pub was completely empty and Billy was behind the bar, we chatted for about half an hour on all things Plymouth.
A nice man and a character, the place won't be quite the same.

Yeh what a nice guy and one of my favourite Plymouth pubs. Let's hope the pub stays in the family and doesn't get the gastro treatment. RIP.

Billy gave me one of my first ever jobs.

I was in The Dolphin last night and the news came as a huge shock.

The Dolphin is going to stay in Billy's family and continue on its own merry way just as it always has.

Billy was a huge character and will be sadly missed.

That’s sad. Didn’t know him but started many a good night in The Dolphin with a couple of pints of Bass off the barrel.

I doubt it will. As I understand it, much of the bare inside is listed, particularly the gross floor. "Authentic" will be a theme one day.
