This place has been a DG staple for more than a decade. Food has been consistent for years in my opinion. The variety is endless and prices are fair. Recently they’ve added a “build your own salad” menu and it’s fantastic. You choose from a...More

Came here on business with a large group. We were all pleasantly surprised to find several authentic tasting dishes on the menu. The beer selection and service were very good. Next time I'm in town I'm going to ask to come back

My helpful staff would have guided you to the no smoking section of the pub but I guess you failed to remember that.

Generally acknowledge as the best Pub in China, One for the Road is known firstly for it's hygiene standards. Since opening in July 2006 customers have never seen any rats or cockroaches in the pub! We also have never had a case of food poisoning. One for the Road is also known to have a large array of Beers on tap from UK, Europe & China. This includes Cider, Ginger Beer & Non alcoholic beer! There is also a wide choice of bottled beers available. But primarily we are famous for our extensive food menu. Our food is consistently good which means we serve on average 350 people every weekday. This does mean we get very full. But if you cannot get a table in the main pub area (we can seat around 170 people) we can seat 50 upstairs in the games area or another 140 in our beer garden. It is acknowledged by Chinese and foreigners that One for the Road is the busiest and best foreign owned & run venue in Dongguan.
