Very pleasantly surprised, booked for 10 & was expecting pub grub. 5 of us had Hake from the specials board - oven roasted fillet topped with king prawns & garlic butter served with buttery crushed portatoes & asparagus, absolutely delicious. 3 had ham & leek pie, very well received but far too much on the plate with new potatoes, carrots/cauli & broc.
Service with a smile, lovely staff.
Great puds but far too big.

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!

Thank Ash B
