We visited Dusty Miller on several occasions in June 2015 as we were travelling on a narrow boat and moored nearby for a number of days. The food was really good but what stands out for me was how helpful and friendly the staff were. It is also an attractive place in a great setting to while away a summer... More

This is a great place to eat while travelling on the Shropshire Union Canal. The decor is beautiful, setting ideal, and the food is delicious

This establishment has been completely refurbished and is now a most enjoyable place to visit for a meal or just a leisurely drink. The bar has an outside terrace for when the weather is good whilst the restaurant overlooks the local canal. Serve is prompt with a wide range of traditional meals. Ideal for a family occasion.

This pub/restaurant has a very pleasant setting alongside the canal at Wrenbury. We had a steak meal and glass of prosecco that was a deal someone had purchased for us. The steak was quite good and the accompaniments were fine. service was attentive, but it really wasn't anything special and I had a very disappointing cheesecake for dessert. So the... More

Visited this lovely country restaurant a couple of weeks ago for a Sunday lunch dinner. Food was fantastic and service was excellent. Couldn't recommend enough. Place was full to the rafters yet service was not compromised. Can't wait to visit again soon!

Average pub. Average food. Nice to watch canal boats pass but that's about it. The place looks quite new from outside but a little tired inside because of stained tables. Pleasant attentive staff.

We ate here as a two-family group, prior to walking aross the road and getting our rental narrowboat from the Wrenbury marina. There were 10 of us in total, and mostly we ordered different items from the menu. Everyone was very pleased with their food, and there were no complaints about anything. The pub is clean, the service is quick... More

A large restaurant by the side of the canal - lovely setting with plenty of wildlife around. We ate in the restaurant but could just as easily have eaten outside by the water. Very good food, excellent choice and friendly staff.
