Robinsons Ales (yawn)...the food was good and my companions all liked it there - expensive gastro pub, if you want real ale other than Robinsons then visit the Cotton Arms down the road.

Good food and well kept beer in a lovely canalside location.
Bit new and plasticky but good nonetheless.

First visit here yesterday afternoon. Pub is in a great location next to the canal and the river Weaver runs through the grounds. Quite a tight turn off the road and then over a small wooden bridge into the carpark. A range of Robinson's ales was available. Very friendly staff. Food looked good.

Fresh from a fit out and very smart. However the pub was a bit soulless and had a corporate feel about it. In the hands of Robinsons and very busy when we went in. Dizzy Blonde Ok.

Dusty reopened at Easter 2011. Still "bedding-in". Previous (much respected) landlord has gone to Black Bear in Whitchurch and is doing very well there.

I was going to visit the Dusty Miller next weekend - glad I viewed its' website - it is currently closed for refurbishment. No mention when it will re-open.

Had a great meal at this pub. The Landlord was new but very friendly. The food was exellent and more than I could eat. The view of the canal was great. I will visit again when in area.

One of my favourite pubs for meals.
Lovely setting on the Llangollen Canal. If you manage to get a window seat you can watch the boats and the lift bridge in operation.
Beer garden also next to canal.
More of a pub for meals than beer. The food is very good and prepared in-house. Bar area rather small.
Small selection of beers but usually one real ale.

Late review from November when we were staying at the caravan park. Found they had Robinsons Chocolate Tom at 6% on, and as I missed this one last time I saw it in a pub I wanted to try it. Was not disappointed. Lovely location for the pub and a large garden area.

First impressions were great, lovely location next to a canal, and traditional interior. All the staff were friendly and helpful. (they even let our dog sneak in the entrance to the 'restaurant' carpeted area.)
I was a little disappointed with the beer choice - only 2 Robinsons ales were on and no guests. As they were not to my tastes, and there were no decent bottles, I had to drink Guinness.
The food was pretty good, above average for pub food, but my expectations were higher than was delivered. Not quite gastro pub or as good as the local Pheasant in Higher Burwardsley or the Dysart arms in Bunbury. All in all a decent boozer, but not necessarily one to make a special journey to (as we did.)

The Dusty serves Robinson's ales on handpump (including Old Tom in winter). There are usually guest beers available from the Robbie's stable and the beer is well-kept. The main emphasis is on dining and the bar area for drinkers is fairly small, but the atmosphere is friendly nevertheless. Food is freshly prepared and very good, although at the pricey end of the spectrum for pub food. Location by Llangollen Canal is excellent for watching amateur boaters manoevring through Wrenbury Lift Bridge.
