Visited as a group of 4 and quickly seated.
The roast is fab with massive Yorkshire puddings.
Looking forward to another Sunday visit.

Great little pub, we stayed in the cottage opposite and having this on your doorstep was a massive plus. Great menu, well priced and a cracking ale selection. Superb.

My family and I visited the Dumpling today for Sunday lunch. We hadn't had a roast here before, but knew the food is always outstanding so took a chance.

This was, hands down, the best roast I've ever had! The wife and I had the beef, Mum had lamb and mum's partner had the trio of roast meat. We all agreed after that the food was incredible and only £8.95! You will not get better quality food for this price around the bay - trust me.

The staff were also exceptional. The two lads were rushed off their feet, but were always polite and helpful. The two waitresses were very polite and attentive - they couldn't do enough to help.

I've heard mixed reviews about the Dumpling over the last few months, but we simply couldn't fault the food or staff. They were, as always, ram-packed but the manager managed to get us a table at short notice.

If you're looking for exceptional food with faultless service, this is the place to go!

WE had booked a table but when we arrived no-one welcomed us or showed us where our table was. We had to find it ourselves. Food had to be ordered from the bar but it was quite busy and we had to wait awhile to give our order. When the food arrived it was not as expected. The cottage pie was in a dish which was on a large plate. On the plate was a little pile of vegetables and they were only lukewarm. The potatoes on the cottage pie were hard and very greasy and not at all like mashed potato which is what is normally on cottage pies. One of our party had a different meal which was fine apart from the potatoes. The girl behind the bar was very pleasant and courteous which is more than could be said about the other staff. All in all we were disappointed in our visit and are unlikely to go there again.
