“make this place your first meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Just returned from a 6 day visit to the Forest of Dean, the Dog and Muffler was recommended to us by our hosts at Dryslade Farm ,we dined at the "Dog" on three different occasions and were dilighted with the standard of food and service service.
Sometimes it is difficult to suggest places where to dine but we have no hesitation in recommending this place.
Mine hosts and the the staff were most hospitable and went the extra mile to ensure that everthing was to our satisfaction,in short it is a 4.9 establishment, try it.
thanks to all at the Dog and Muffler.
Marion and Stan

“Not as good as the hype!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

I had read the reviews and decided to give it a try. It is in a wonderful setting and has a great beer garden. On walking past the pub the extract fans were oozing with black fat, which did not bode well!. At the entrance is a menu board which is very tired and un-cared for. Another tell tale sign. We had to wait longer than expected for our food, and when it arrived it was at best OK. My steak was overcooked, and no one returned to our table to enquire how the food was. The staff were OK, but not enough on hand. Prices are slightly higher than other local pubs, so coupled with the dissapointment, we will not return.

“Dog and Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Once you find it, this place is excellent! We went on a VERY busy day, and were advised of a long wait for food. We decided to wait, and the delay was far less than we have experienced, without warning, in many other places. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the food was excellent, and plentiful, the prices were reasonable, and, best of all, they allow dogs!!
Will definitely return!!!
