Information taken from John Bavington Jones' book "A Perambulation of the Town, Port and Fortress of Dover", 1906. (Reprint in The South Kent Gazette, August 15th, 1979.

Probably the last cobbled carriageway in Dover, Dolphin Lane used to be flanked by Messrs. Leney's former Phoenix brewery premises. There was a brewery here in the 18th century, and in 1808 it was a flourishing concern, owned by Mr. James Walker, who, at that time, considerably developed it and erected some steam machinery; which was superseded by more modern plant during the greater development of the business in the hands of Messrs. Leney and Co., the buildings at one time covering over five acres.

At the beginning of 1927 Dover lost this, the last and the oldest of  its breweries, Messrs. Leney and Co. amalgamating with  Messrs. Fremlins, Ltd., of Maidstone, to which town their brewing work was transferred. The brewing plant was sold, but part of the  premises was subsequently used for bottling, etcetera. Then the site became redundant and was sold. A multi-storey car park now occupies part of the site.

Fifty years earlier there were no less than seven breweries at work in Dover, viz.:- Cliffe's Brewery, at Archcliffe; Satchell's, in Limekiln Street; Leney's, in Dolphin Lane; Poulter's Castle Brewery, in Russell Street (afterwards Leney's); the Diamond Brewery, in Maxton; Harding's Wellington Brewery, in London Road, at the rear of the Flour Mills; and Kingsford's Buckland Brewery, at the premises at the corner of Union Road (later Palmer's and then, until 1978, Jenkins and Pain's coachworks. Earlier still, there were other breweries in Dover, notably, a very ancient one on Custom House Quay.
