Very hospitable, very good service, excellent food. I booked a table for a Tuesday night, but probably didn't need to. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The menu is varied without having too much choice. All our food was top notch.

Without a doubt - one of the best meals I've had in awhile, very well cooked and also has a very fresh and different menu to the average restaurant. I had the Hanger Steak, and was cooked to perfection, my family had roast and that was also rated very good too, all presented very well. The deserts were fantastic, the... More

After having spent 3+ weeks in the USA earlier in the year, we had not been to the Dusty Miller for several months, (we were steaked out!) We were heartbroken to see the new menu had no rib eye steak, one of our favourites. We were however talked into trying the hanger steak, mine rare, my wife having it medium... More

The Dusty Miller does the best fish and chips. They also provide a take away service. All the food is sourced locally and the chef is excellent. I cannot recommend this pub eneough.

The food here is of a high standard for a pub. We ordered fish n chips and unlike other pubs the fish tasted fresh. Service is also very good. The only reason I have not given five stars is due to their prices and overall ambience.

Lunch today - nicely busy, plenty of atmosphere and incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff. We had the hanger steak and a burger - both brilliant. Ice creams and sticky toffee rounded off an excellent meal - well-priced and simply beautifully cooked, presented and served. A great find - we will be back!

Popped in for lunch. Not cheap pub grub but well worth paying the little extra. Both food and service faultless. Will be back for dinner sometime soon

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch here today. The service was outstanding and the food was impeccable. We all enjoyed our meals. Presentation was beautiful. It was my first visit here and I cannot wait to return.

Had a lovely evening trying out the food here. Now I know what people mean by being able to cut a steak with a knife! Both the waitresses were really efficient and friendly. We've booked for Christmas 🎄
