It's improving....

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... read more

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

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

Went with my husband for a groupon meal paid by daughter for his birthday. Made welcome as soon as we entered. Starters of blackpudding, crispy bacon and crispy poached egg (brilliant how they cooked the egg) and duck parfait, duck bonbob etc tasted as good as they looked. Mains of seabass and prawns,and salmon also very good. Being lactose intollerant... More

Excellent high-end pub food - almost gastro-pub but with out the pretentiousness! Their selection of pies (with home-cut chunky chips) are AMAZING! The smoked haddock kedgeree risotto was excellent. For puds the lemon posset is to dies for. Good beers too. Only thing I wasn't keen on was that all drinks, even if ordered at the bar, are delivered (very... More

Our first visit to The Dusty Miller was via a Travelzoo deal - and we are very glad we went! The pub is in a beautiful setting, just beyond the village of Wrenbury and right next to the Llangollen Canal. As such it is a little off the beaten track but the whole visit was a real delight. The pub... More

Called in on spec from our narrowboat. Had the last two Sunday lunches which were brilliant. Beer was good, service very good. Not like a traditional pub though with all table service. Nevertheless excellent food.

Visited yesterday having booked. Lovely food, good service and great walk along the canal. Actually did not need to have booked as quite quiet. Will return in the summer.
