I was pleasantly surprised by both the quality and variety of food and the venue itself. I had a preconceived idea that it would be a 'mans' pub with football fans etc but it was anything but and had a family friendly atmosphere and a quiet eating room separate from the bar. This was a Sat lunchtime, very convenient to break from shopping for lunch and prices very reasonable.

You really do get what you pay for some good honest pub food in a simple pub design. The food is stereotypical pub food so you know what you are getting. They are also not stingy on the cheese which is something I appreciate a lot! The portions are just right as well not too big and not too small Definitely worth going for lunch!

This is a gem.The best breakfasts(and other food)in a lovely well looked after pub in the centre.As people leave after eating,the tables are immediately cleared and cleaned-with a fresh cloth,not the multiples manky one that makes the table stink.The pride comes through.The staff are good,efficient and friendly.Good beers."Comfortable" sounds like a cardigan but this pub is just like an oasis and "women friendly". Try it

I was staying in the Wallingford area this week and we were recommended The Dolphin for good but reasonable priced food. This is a great understatement, the food was fantastic and the price was very, very, reasonable, I know where we will be eating next time we are in Wallingford.
