“Restaurant was empty but we were turned away ”

Written on: 11/05/2014

We had always liked the Dog, so decided to go for my partner's birthday. It was a Saturday but at 5.15 pm, we expected the bar to be empty. It wasn't but the only tables available were occupied by a man with a rather lively springer spaniel straining at the leash, jumping up all across three tables. No-one wants to eat with a dog jumping around them so we asked if we could sit in the restaurant area, which was virtually empty. We were told that it was fully booked but having a sneaky look at… Read Full Review

“"expected better"”

Written on: 11/11/2012

Our first visit to the Dog Inn on Friday 9th November 2012, which we were looking forward to. Seated at a table for two, in the middle aisle (which is the main thoroughfare for diners and staff constantly walking past the table) We chose from the £12.99 menu, the starter of smoked salmon risotto was very nice, therefore, looking forward to our main course we chose the rump steak. Very disappointed, tasteless, chewy and unable to eat it. (ended up in a doggy bag) even the dog wouldn't it… Read Full Review

“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"… Read Full Review

“VERY NICE”

Written on: 24/07/2012

Visited here in July having been here the same time last year. We found everything just as good as the last visit, staff very friendly, surroundings very pleasant and prices very reasonable for the excellent quality of food. I cant really understand the negative comments but having said that i do understand that everyone is different and we all have very different expectations, all i can say is that in my own personal experience i cant fault the place!… Read Full Review

“Gone to the dogs!!”

Written on: 14/05/2012

My freind and I here on Sunday 13th May and really wish I hadn't bothered. I've even her several times before and was always impressed with the lovely food and service...well that's a thing of the past! The service was terrible. The head waitress/manager was very rude, barking at us to sit in the bar and order at the bar as we hadn't booked a table. Then she nearly bit our head off for having the cheek to ask for vinager!! I've never been made to feel quite so unwelcome...manners really do go… Read Full Review

“very rude staff”

Written on: 30/04/2012

we have recently visited this "eating outlet" expecting to have a nice pleasent meal but on arrival we were greeted with an unfriendly welcome via staff (as if they did not want us there). After that we thought oh well im sure the food will be nice, first of all we ordered our meal which was brought out and slammed on our table with no cuttlery, we waited a little while until we had to ask for it worrying our meal would go cold. Upon starting our very expensive burger it soon became clear to us… Read Full Review

“Birthday Sunday Lunch”

Written on: 05/12/2011 by IamBarbaraM (1 review written)

Not being from the area but by a process of elimination and looking at reviews, I decided on The Dog to bring my daughter, and her friend, for Sunday lunch to celebrate her birthday. On arrival we were warmly greeted, and offered drinks with the menus.The specials of the day were pointed out to us on the chalk boards, before sitting at our table in the dining area. The whole place is nicely decorated, quite modern but sympathetic to the age of the building.The bar area has a wood burner and… Read Full Review

“Not Good At All”

Written on: 31/10/2011

Both myself and partner enjoy eating out regularly as well as cooking. We thought we would the Dog Inn at Pentrich as it appeared in the Derbyshire Good Food Magazine and have trusted this with many other fine eating establishments across Derbyshire. Firstly on arrival we noticed that the choice of drinks available is neither extensive or of a quality you would expect in a… Read Full Review
