A lovely village deserves a unique local. Luckily for the residents of this particular village, the Dunton Bassett Arms (DBA) is something very special indeed.

As the DBA's traditional exterior suggests, here you'll have access to a fully stocked bar that serves a wide range of cask ales, bottled beer, premium lager and cider and an impressive array of world wine. It's the perfect place to catch up with friends as you enjoy the rustic interior of flagstone floors and wooden beams. But this Good Eating Guide Gold Award holder has a few other attributes up its intriguing sleeve.

Venture from the bar into the restaurant area and be prepared for an exotic assault on the senses as the tempting, fragrant aromas of Chinese cuisine hit you. This award-winning restaurant has plenty of choice, but I recommend starting, as I always do, with a quarter crispy duck with all the delicious trimmings. For the more adventurous, starters like mussels in a chilli and black bean sauce should definitely be explored. Next, perhaps mix and match a selection of dishes with your fellow diners and go for beef with cashews, water chestnuts and bamboo shoots; duck with a honey and lemon sauce; satay king prawns; and sweet and sour Hong Kong-style chicken. There's a nice variety of rice and noodle options to accompany your choices too.

If you just can't decide, set meal options are available to make life easier for the indecisive, and, for the traditionalist in your party, there are British alternatives too. Another string to the DBA's bow is a superb carvery roast served every Sunday, although booking is essential to ensure you get your cut of the action
