We've been here a few times for breakfast, and I don't think you can get more for your pound elsewhere. While this usually means lower quality, you may be surprised. Dog friendly too.

Unassuming town centre pub, popped in for lunch with a visiting friend from the USA keen to sample british beer, entered in trepidation thinking that the food would prove a poor second best to the drinks but was totally wrong, once we looked past the shock of the decor, both the food and beer were equally excellent, quantities of food...

Went in with the guys from work one night after work for some food and drinks. They have some good beers on tap and the food was good, not a bad place to go in Wallingford.

My favorite place to eat and drink in town. There is nearly always something on be it a band or a dj. If not the juke box is there. The management are welcoming and the food is yet to disapoint. Highly recommended for everyone
