Richard1910's review of The Dog Inn, Pentrich

★★☆☆☆

“Not up to the standard I had heard about.”

Written on: 09/11/2012 by Richard1910 (2 reviews written)

We recently stayed on holiday in Pentrich in a lovely cottage.

One Thursday in October we decided to go to the Dog Inn for a meal as it was highly recommended to us.

Over the years we have eaten in every style and class of restaurant in many countries.

Firstly we found the tables in the restaurant very tight and close to each other although not overly so.

Food quality was though very poor. I had soup which was tasteless and steak with tasteless vegetables. My wife's meal had "buttery mash" which had about 1 gram of butter per 1 kg of potatoes!

Service was very average and not on par with the supposed "posh" atmosphere.

We ordered a bottle of one of their more expensive wines which turned out to be much worse than the 50p cartons we sometimes buy in Spain.

Overall the quality was on par with one of the very large chain pubs (W) but not too good for the £70 we paid for 2 people.

Won't be going back
