We come to the Dusty Miller every couple of weeks (sometimes more often!) as it's our local and the food is amazing: we love it and we recommend it to everyone we know! The food is exceptional: well cooked, perfectly paired flavours with lots of variety and a menu that changes daily to reflect seasonality. At the DM they also... More

Three of us went for Sunday lunch but we all wanted different types of food. To me the place looked liked a traditional old pub that would do a nice but unexciting Sunday roast. The roast was good but so was the burger. My choice was curried sausages with chick peas (not the description on the menu but I forgot... More

Hi Lorri D Thank you for your review. We are glad you chose the DM for sunday lunch and are happy you enjoyed your experience. Our menu changes fairly frequently but the burger is a permanent fixture which is always a popular choice. We hope to see you again soon, hopefully with our new sorbets in the pipeline.

We pre ordered the leg of lamb and I think it was probably the best Sunday lunch I have ever had the pleasure of paying for 😜.

We came here for Sunday lunch on the off chance. We both had the roast which was delicious and a good sized portion, neither of us had room for pudding, so I can't comment on them. The service was good, in spite of them being very busy. The staff were friendly and efficient. I would certainly recommend it and go... More

I visited the Dusty Miller with some friends on a Saturday night, so the pub was busy. The service was friendly, and relatively efficient. The food was nice, and well cooked. My only criticism would be, that the food is good pub food, but it is priced 20% higher than I would normally pay at a decent pub, so I... More

HI SWard_13 Thank you for review...it is great to have all feedback but just for the benefit of future T/A readers I must say 20% of pricing in all restaurants is VAT at 20% so the price you see will always have VAT added on. We do not have any dishes restricted to lunchtimes only, its is just that we... More

Was very impressed with the freshness of food and the great service! Only had fish and chips but we all know how hit and miss that can be - it was delicious, fish was fresh, batter exactly as it should be and sauces and mushy peas very tasty. Great experience.

Called in for a midweek dinner without a reservation. Front of house waitress absolutely top notch. Welcoming, efficient and professional. Ambience is that of a traditional public house. Decor delightfully traditional, mostly light oak with eclectic mismatched chairs. I have a serious food allergy and need to ensure all ingredients are known. The waitress was knowledgeable about food ingredients but... More
