It was a busy night yet the food was first rate. The portions were of a good size. I sampled the garlic mushrooms and belly pork. The bar maid was run of her feet as she was the only person serving but she did it...More

This review is written with great sadness and I think the establishment has been greedy in cramming people in to make maximum profit at the cost of good timely service. We arrived on time at 7pm our starters arrived at 8.15 and then waited a...More

Not reviewed the Dumpling for a couple of years and was there for a meal one Saturday night recently. It was brilliant with lots of atmosphere, good drink and good, honest food. If you want a quiet meal this is not the place for you...More
