We called in for lunch while on a canal boat trip along the Llangollen Canal. We stocked up on some local essentials the shop at the rear of the restaurant and along the road in Wrenbury near the church. We were first in for a meal on a Tuesday so managed to get a view of the canal and lift... More

Have previously had some of the best sunday roasts ever at Dusty Miller...however not this month, possibly one of the worst roast dinners had in many years. The meat was undercooked and chewy, the roast potatoes were amenmic and vegetables bland. I'm surprised the chef did not realise. ....poor quality control. This is not the worst of it. That day...

I went with a group of Ladies for Lunch on a soggy wet Tuesday! The Manager had reserved tales for us by the windows so we could gaze at the boats floating by while we enjoyed our delicious meals. I had Smoked Salmon, Boeuf Bourguingnonne (I think that's you spell it) followed by Bread & Butter pudding - it was... More

Camped across the road at the Cotton Arms. When we were there on the Friday the cotton arms was busy with a wedding rehearsal so we walked the ten yards across the road to the Dusty Miller. A lovely building by the canal it was also busy with the overflow from the other pub but they happily booked us in..... More

Visited with family for dinner. Remembered this as an excellent pub restaurant and was not disappointed. Food was excellent, service was both cheerful and attentive. This is truly a 5 star+ restaurant.

Had a nice relaxing solo lunch sat on the raised deck. The food was solid if nothing special but the lovely sunny deck raised it to by a *. The service at the bar was polite and swift. When the family home back from their hols I think it is worthy of a family visit.

We visited the Dusty Miller for the first time on Saturday afternoon. What a lovely pub this is. We got a nice friendly welcome . We were shown to our table , the menu provided and our drinks ordered. We sat inside and watched the boats passing from the window next to us. The meal we ordered was superb, and... More

We only visited for a drink or two so can't comment on the food. It's a great location with nice gardens over the small stream by the canal. This pub is a more formal pub than it's more "country" feel neighbour. The staff are there to do a job and do it well but the art of conversation and smiles... More
