Thoroughly recommend this Chinese. It's situated at the back of the pub but don't be put off. The restaurant is separate and staffed by lovely Chinese people. The food is simply the best we have tasted. Book early as tables are limited and it's very popular.

Took my family for a Chinese for the first time instead of a takeaway and had heard good things about the DBA and travelled 20 miles round trip to be there. It was absolutely worth it! The Beer is kept very well. The service and staff were perfect. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious couldn’t fault it.... More

Get together with friends over a few drinks and a Chinese meal. Food good, staff very friendly and helpful. They even left us to keep the table for another hour after we had finished eating. And the bonus for me was Real ale available, not a raft of lagers. 6 people, starters, mains and drinks for £100. Top Dollar.

We ate here last Friday, and what an enjoyable, tasty meal it was. The staff were friendly and efficient, the food arrived quickly and was tasty. One minor criticism, because it is part of a local pub, it was very noisy( the youngsters don't seem to be able to communicate without shouting!!)and because Annie has a hearing disorder, it was...

Very busy popular pub/indian restaurant. One of the first that converted and still at the top of the list for original food and cuisine. Not always necessary to book as they do their best to accommodate you but it is safer if you do not wan to be hanging around as they do have times sittings.

Lovely options. Cantonese food with a modern European twist. Lots of flavours and home made recipes & sauces & signature dishes that cannot be found elsewhere. Very tasty and good for take away too!

Called on on the way back from somewhere else for a nightcap. Have been here lots of times for Chinese and drinks. The Chinese users way to much MSG hence the reason everyone says they leave thirsty but as a pub the booze is good the atmosphere friendly and what you'd expect/hour for from a village pub.

Thank rmguk
