We had a really delicious meal here again. Great friendly service in a lovely setting. My partner had pate followed by a pie and I had prawn cocktail followed by fish and chips. Reasonably priced and Large portions ... there was no way we could try dessert! Recommended.

After a muddy, cool walk found this little haven on the banks of the canal by a Grade II listed bridge. Beautifully appointed pub with ample parking. Both had kedgeree with haddock and a runny egg for one and firm egg for me. The haddock was a little over-cooked but the rice was tasty and the spices sang through. Generous... More

Regular readers of my reviews will know that I have my favourites in the Nantwich area and the Dusty is one of them. Yes, I know there ARE other places, but with a decent 3 course meal with drinks for 2 heading at least into £60+ territory, chancing a new venue can be a risky(and a wallet damaging!).experience. Exploring new... More

Situated beside the Llangollen Canal in the pretty little village of Wrenbury. We visited on a cold day & enjoyed sitting in the comfy armchairs by the log burning stove. The following day we enjoyed a very nice meal here. The staff were very friendly. Also a suitable overnight stop for motorhomes in the Britstop scheme.

we chose this place as it had been recommended by a friend of a friend! Its a lovely country pub on the banks of the canal, very picturesque and no doubt mobbed in summer. It was a little quiet when we arrived as we chose, for our convenience at 17:00 booking. We were surprised to learn that a lot if... More

Unless my memory is failing me this place used to be much better than it is now. The staff are still nice and friendly, and it remains a lovely setting, but the food has become unimaginative and generic. Good beer selection though!

Went on spec. Staff very attentive and found us a table even though we hadn't booked. A bit of a wait for food to arrive but good food is always worth waiting for.And it was good you'll have to go along way to beat this for the price lovely.
