I have eaten in the Dolphin many times from quick snacks to their delicious home made pies but had to stick a line on here for all of you that like a hearty breakfast.

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

I have eaten here a few times before and should have reviewed as quite frankly this is the best value pub diner I have eaten in. More importantly though value does not mean quality suffers as every meal I have had has been extremely well prepared and presented and the staff are so friendly. The eating area ta the back...

While visiting relatives in Oxfordshire we often go in to the town of Wallingford. While there we found the perfect watering hole The Dolphin, the ale is top's and the food is fantastic. The staff are very jovial and helpful as are the locals. A Must while in the area.
