Good but nothing special

4 of us ate, we had a mixed platter for 3, 4 mains, 3 puddings and one drink each - probably around £70 I would think, so not unreasonably priced. The starter was good - lovely satay chicken (though it would have been nice had the sticks been visible from the outside so I didn't bite in to one... read more

I would give this restaurant two stars for the size of its portions and friendly staff, but really this was one of the worst Chinese meals I've eaten in a long time. The fillet steak, the chicken chow mien and the pork satay all arrived swamped in an identical, very bland gravy. You could not taste satay sauce at all.... More

We stayed in Leyburn recently and walked across the market square to eat upstairs in The Dragon Inn. The staff were friendly and attentive. The menu was comprehensive and wide ranging. We ordered a mixture of both familiar and new dishes between us and were not disappointed as even the former were served slightly differently ..... but in a good... More

Was a bit dubious about ordering a takeaway, having read the other reviews, but they picked up their phone on the 2nd ring (unlike the Chinese takeaway in Bedale who didn't answer at all - on a Saturday night) and the food was really quite alright. Had read other reviews about lack of flavour but we had lemon chicken and... More

Three of us visited and we had 1/4 Crispy duck and the set meal for three. The food was excellent and the service was good and attentive with humour. there was too much food. We had a very decent wine and the bill was a pleasant surprise ( low). A good evening we shall return.

While I waited for my order, both the restaurant and takeaway were busy. Takeaway customers seemed to be locals and a few were recognised by staff. This should have been a good sign, but the food I bought (8 meals, not all for me!) was slimy and lacking in taste. Some of the textures were odd, especially the chicken. Portions... More

What a completely dreadful meal, possibly the worse takeaway I have ever eaten. No credit or debit facilities, horrible food, most of it uneatable. Even worse than the décor and the food was the service from the women behind the counter, don't think she had ever heard of customer service. Save your money and just go to the co op... More

Had a very nice mean in this restaurant, a very very basic chinese menu that is very western but I suspect that is ok for the region. Nice food anyway and friendly service!

This is for the Leyburn restaurant. No credit or debit card facilities. Bland food. Awful decor. Dirty stinking toilets, the gents hand towel paper is on a roll about 7 foot high! Saturday night and only 2 tables occupied. Says it all really. Only good thing were the 2 guys waiting and running reception, polite and attentive and tried their... More
