I reveiwed The Dusty Miller in June 2014. This pub has always been known for its excellent service and food, however around a year ago the Manager, Chris, left and the pub really went down hill. I gave it several chances, but in June 2014 I said enough is enough after one awful meal and it was the end of... More

Lovely setting. Service and food definitely improved since last visit two years ago. First visit excellent. Second visit the Boar sausages were quite bland but duck pate and lemon mousse very good. Pity they had run out of steak and ale pie at 6 pm. Friends most disappointed. Will definitely continue to visit.

My wife and I visited a few times a couple of years back, and although the pub is in a beautiful location and has had a refurbishment, you got the sense that the place was struggling, really struggling! The food was disappointing, and it was always very quiet. We visited over the weekend and wow! What an improvment, the place... More

This establishment has a special setting alongside the canal. There is also running water beside the restaurant. There is a beer garden beside the canal which is a lovely place to while away the time. There is also a draw bridge across the road which is operated by the occupants of the barges, spectacular when a barge goes past. On... More

I reviewed The Dusty some months ago after a couple of atrocious meals and poor service and atmosphere. We revisited against my wishes yesterday for a quick bite to eat. I must say that it was a huge improvement but still far from perfect. I ordered steak. It arrived well done even though I requested medium rare. It was not... More

Friendly welcome, efficient service and excellent food; what more could you want? Lovely location? We got that too along with bright and airy dining room overlooking the LLangollen Canal and its lift bridge.and clean toilets with ample hot water. We booked this on Travelzoo and the hour journey each way was well worth the effort. We must find an excuse... More
