Stopped by for an early morning breakfast. Service was slow, staff more concerned with cleaning and tidying up from the night before. Once we attracted attention service picked up a bit and a very good breakfast at a good price was served. The full breakfast was of a good quality and served piping hot. A range of sauces and a...

This is the second time we ate at this pub. The service was so good and the food delicious. Even toys provided for younger children. We ate outside and it was so pleasant. Would definitely recommend!

We stopped by chance at this pub which and we shall be returning, The service was polite and friendly, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. A true gem of a pub, with the local postman asleep at the bar and looking very comfortable after a hard days graft and good beer on tap you instantly got the... More

We have Sunday lunch at The Dolphin whenever the weather's fine and we're on the river (it's four hours downstream from Abingdon). This last time didn't disappoint. Three or four thick slices of deliciously tender beef in gravy with yorkshire pudding arrived first. Then a massive bowl of vegetables (peas, carrots, french beans and roast potatoes) enough for four (there... More

Yet another delicious and filling lunch enjoyed with my Mum and Aunt. So many choices with specials and very tempting desserts. Have never found the Dolphin empty, most of the time you need to reserve a table or wait for one. Great value for money.

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... More
