Had an evening meal here. There were 6 of us and all of us had great meals cooked beautifully and very tasty - only slight negative was that one of our party felt her peppercorn sauce should have been thicker as it was a very weak consistency. All in all a great meal - I had the sweet potato meal... More

I have been having lunch with friends Tthe OPO for several years. The food is good but the service has been less so, usually slow. On my last visit there our waitress was quite impatient, almost rude. We have decided to try somewhere else for our next lunch date this week. Maybe try it again later.

Haven't eaten in the OPO for quite a while, but as the management has changed recently we thought we'd give it a go. The service was very good - a young Romanian girl looked after us for the evening as was attentive and chatty. The food service was just right - without too long a wait between courses, but I've...

Becoming a regular now and the small but excellent menu is always good for a night out. Tasty and sensibly priced. Only issue was that when asked if the dish came with any salad we were told no so ordered a side salad, but when the meal arrived there was one included! Annoying for the extra expense and for it...

As the Bunkfest was happening over the weekend of 3/4th September and we were in Walingford and hungry we headed into this fine establishment for breakfast. Boy were we impressed. The food is of the highest quality and really tasty. The waitress was very helpful, friendly and efficient. the portions were LARGE and at one stage I thought "this is... More

The surroundings were pleasant, orderly and clean. The waitress was also attentive and actually wrote down our order pretty precisely. However, the water we had ordered never arrived, until we asked the manager. The mocktail I ordered was supposed to contain celery but came without it. The lady next to me had celery with her lunch and so I knew... More

Dinner here was delicious. The menu was varied and comprehensive. Food was well cooked and arrived promptly. The atmosphere was buzzy vibrant without being too noisy. You do need to book. The service was warm and friendly if slightly chaotic. White wine was not chilled enough but ice bucket was provided. Enjoyed the whole evening and will return.

Popped into the opo one lunch time for a couple of beers. On entering the property we were impressed with the decor and layout. The staff were very friendly and it was clean and tidy. We sat outside the front of the property soaking up the sunshine and the beer,watching the world go by,perfect.

Thanks for the review. It means a lot to us that you enjoyed your visit to us and what a better excuse to visit than for a few beers. Better yet you were able to enjoy our "British weather". We look forward to seeing you soon. More

As a resident of Wallingford we have used the OPO frequently over the years, whilst the staff change they are replaced with equally friendly people, the food remains good, the atmosphere fine, however my comment is the place needs some TLC, the settees in the front of house have holes in them and the general state of repair is poor,...

These guys are super friendly, especially with kids. The only thing that let me down was "The English" breakfast, the sausages were boiled and not put under the grill after boiling to make tan the skin for texture and make them taste nicer. The breakfast comes with two slices of oval bread, three juicy vine tomatoes, two rashes of bacon,... More
