After being seated at the table we waited at least 10 minutes for a drinks order and a further 10 minutes the order food. We had two different menus given to us. I asked the waiter what one meal was and he didn't have a clue? I went to the bar to ask the girl what menu we were ordering... More

It was rather cold inside and dusty shelves and very dusty things in the toilet , tops of toilet roll holder and toilet brush holder and yes I know it's the DUSTY miller. There was no atmosphere in the restaurant, We waited 30 mins for the starter And then 40 minutes after finishing it for the main course. The waitresses... More

Just had a lovely meal at The Dusty Miller. The food was really tasty. I had a Sunday roast which had a great selection of veg with it which I always like. My wife had veg burger which she really enjoyed. The main highlight was the extremely helpful waitress. We took our 2 year old who never eats a full... More

After a long day on the tiller of our narrowboat, we stopped for dinner at The Dusty Miller. After initial greetings we were shown to a table. Menu was given by the head barmaid/waitress who literally couldnt be bothered. After waiting ages for her to return to take our order I approached the bar where she was doing paperwork. The... More

We had previously called just for a look and a pint but because it has an interesting location (and a walk along the canal for their dog) we took our friends. Nice cosy traditional pub with a good range of quality beers and a reasonably interesting menu. We had the menu de jour at a reasonable £15 for three courses... More

Visited for lunch. Great spot overlooking the canal . The building has such potential but seemed to be in need of a refurb. The food was very good quality. Worth a visit in a sunny day to take full advantage of the location

This establishment was recommended to my wife and I so we thought we would give it a try. First impression was not good as the main bench seat under the window was covered in hair, not sure if it was animal or dog. We own a dog but believe they should not be allowed in a pub where food is... More

Greeted by attentive and friendly staff. This beautifully refurbished gastro pub is in an idyllic spot next the canal, The Dusty Miller has lots of potential. But it does need to up its game in the food department.

We were a party of four on a narrowboat. We managed to time our voyage to arrive for traditional English Sunday roast lunch. Some chose pork and some chose beef and all of it was excellent. You have the choice of small or large. We all had small. Ha! I would hate to see the large plate, I assume it... More

Stayed here for 1 night in our Motorhome as they offer EHU at 7.50gbp.....good price Location is fantastic next to the canal. The evening meal was excellent and the staff very friendly Most definitely on our list to come back for a night out. At least we do not have far to stagger home 😊
