Visited with my 21 yr old daughter, who was treating me to a breakfast out while she had some time off work. Both ordered the full English which when it arrived looked great. To say it was a hearty breakfast is an understatement. Bacon, sausages, hash browns, mushrooms, eggs, toast and beans. All washed down with a mug of cappuccino.... More

The Dolly is an instition in Wallingford, known for great home cooked pub food, friendly atmosphere and good beer. We often eat here but their breakfasts are simply amazing.

Had breakfast here and a good English breakfast it was. The small one was very generous and the full one enormous. It comes with tea or coffee included. It was a good start to the day.

Two BIG breakfasts, a tea and a coffee for £12 - what more can you say! Great value (as long as you can stomach watching people drinking pints of lager at 10 in the morning :-) ) The photo at the top says it all - 2 bacon, 2 sausages, 2 has browns, 2 eggs, black pudding, baked beans, mushrooms,...
