Visited on a Saturday lunch time and found the location breath taking. The staff were efficient, friendly and welcoming. A good menu choice not to large but sufficiently varied to make choosing difficult. The pate and black pudding starter were delicious and very nicely presented. For mains we had 2 of the signature pies, a salad and steak all were... More

We arrived on the off chance and we weren't disappointed. The bar area is spacious,were we could sit with our dog. There was a fantastic choice on the menu. We opted for pate and then my husband had the fish sharing board,which included whitebait,smoked salmon & prawns and I had the Farmers board,which is an enhanced ploughman's. Both were excellent....

So much money was spent on this place and very nicely too. Shame about the landlords and menu choices...totally incongruous to the surroundings and prices. Shame... There is so much potential here in the location.

Partner and I both had pies and they were delicious, plenty of filling and the crumble top was a bit different but in a good way! Good selection of ales and other drinks. Staff were great at fitting us in on a busy night. Highly recommend.

This country pub is in a fantastic setting right next to the canal. After a beautiful day in the Cheshire countryside we decided to revisit this pub for lunch and it did not disappoint. The menu is made up from locally sourced fresh food, lots of choices and the puddings are 'too die for". The wine menu is excellent and... More

Beautiful canal side location but reflected in the price! Husband had the meat platter while I opted for the fish platter. Both were reasonably good but too large - neither of us could finish it - would have preferred a smaller amount at a smaller price as it seemed a waste. Friendly staff and lovely location - parked on our... More

As we bumbled along the Llangollen canal, we encountered many hostelries that could have been awarded the accolade of the best eating place we visited. Alas, not having a travel-writer's budget (unless anyone is willing to sub me) I can only write on limited experience, and that experience tells me the Dusty Miller, right on the Llangollen canal was the...
