We had a lovely evening at the newly refurbished Dusty Miller. Beuatiful decor and fabulous new menu to match. The menu has something for everyone with an excellent choice of starters, mains and sweets - all nicely presented and very tasty too. After chatting with the owner we were really pleased to hear the produce is locally sourced - what a bonus.

The staff were attentive and courteous at all times - what a refreshing change.

We will definitely visit again.

We have only eaten here but on quite a few occasions and would recommend the food, especially if you are in a hurry as the carvery is always available. They offer a varied menu with plenty of desserts to choose from. The staff are friendly and helpful and the recent refurb has really made a difference.

On arrival the hotel looked good plenty of parking and nice views. stayed for one night (Saturday night) The room was fairly average small and cramped. The bathroom was v. small smelt not fresh, shower had lots of hot water 12" sink & loo. I opened the window and could here the M1..At 9.30pm the band started playing. The sound drowned out the T.V. They stopped at 12.15a.m.The full English was good...Customers should be made aware of the live band & noise level on a Saturday night.... Not Good.............

Room Tip: Try another hotel

Hi Glen
This reply is more of a tip for you in future and other customers considering a
Inn venue B+B
For anyone considering staying over night and would like peace and quiet i would definitely
say stay in a hotel granted it will be hotel prices.
The reason i say this is Inns and bars with B+B are going to be busy with the general trade and especially on a Saturday night they will expect to be busy with weekend trade with at least diners and drinkers and many places do provide weekend entertainment to boost trade.
We do publicise well on our sites especially our own website that we have live music every Saturday.
My suggestion if this would be a issue, with a inn then do research the venues website
to check what they have going off before booking.
Many people actually book the Dusty for meals and to stay over because there is entertainment on Saturdays.
Most nights we have a nice relaxing atmosphere so you don't have to worry about noise.
Regarding opening your bedroom window as in most homes unless you live down a private lane you will here some sort of noise although we are not on a main road which is a plus and when the window is shut you can not here the Motorway at all which is also a plus.So noise issues are a very limited problem.Iv stayed in many a venue and heard street traffic and all sorts noise compared to our venue i would say it is last on the list of worries apart from our live music on Thursdays & Saturdays.
Hope this clears up any discrepancies.
Yours sincerely
Adrian and team Dusty

Went for meal for my friends birthday. Food very poor and not as stated on menu.Several ordered scallop stack. When they arrived was a very tiny piece of scallop on large piece of black pudding. When someone complained was told by landlord " well its a scallop isnt it". I ordered prawn cocktail which on menu said 2 tiger prawns. All that arrived was a bowl with cheap shredded lettuce with cheap small prawns. Someones crab meal forgotten so didnt get until after everyone else.
We had gone to see band Thor who were excellent as usual. If hadnt been that it was my friends birthday would have left and gone somewhere else. Will not go again. Thor play at far better venues so will see them else where in the future.

Thank you for your appraisal of our food,however?

Firstly your friends 55th birthday party celebration after talking personally to the lady to ask if she had enjoyed her dining experience was met with a positive response that she had enjoyed it and has visited our venue on other occasions.
I also new other members in the party including a local landlord who is a very nice gentleman who i bought a pint and had a catch up as well as also treating the birthday girl to a glass of red wine.
Regarding the scollop stack it was not a piece of scollop it was a whole queen scollop as stated on the menu with the award winning black pudding and a nice strip of crispy pancetta which is presented in layers for under £5.
Im not suggesting it is a large starter but a very tasty starter which is actually our biggest seller and using nice quality ingredients.
Regarding your actual choice of starter being the prawn cocktail,firstly it does not state Tiger prawns but just worded Atlantic prawns dressed with King prawns served on a bed of crisp lettuce which is what we used-- Iceberg lettuce which is what nearly all restaurants use up & down the country also our choice of Atlantic prawns again used in most establishments but with the bonus of 2 King prawns on top.
Regarding the fresh crab i do recall it being the last to arrive to the table a few moments after everybody else's so apologies on that 1.
The Dusty was fully booked for meals that evening and all other diners had a enjoyable dining experience also another great crowd of regulars and new visitors also topped up the night with a 150 plus revellers who like you said enjoyed the evenings top entertainment.
We have a long established reputation for our food and entertainment providing top quality bands
and tributes.
Iv never had the pleasure of eating at Morrison's so i can't comment on that 1.

Regards Adrian and team Dusty.

Fantastic. I came for my hen do with 10 friends. We stayed here to see the band - Thor, who were playing in the pub, and were excellent, after spending the afternoon in barlborough spa (down the road - which I also highly recommend). The rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely be coming back!
