4 reviews of Dog & Muffler Inn in English
Privately run Harvester… Nothing especially objectionable, but at the same time nothing special.
After reading some positive reviews we took a short walk through some fantastic countryside to this pub.
The lobby had the feel of an unstaffed hotel. Upon approaching the bar in the restaurant area we were greeted by a cheerful barmaid who served us a tasty perry and a nice local ale. Despite their quality the drinks were from a somewhat limited selection.
Upon being seated we were given the Sunday lunch menu, which seemed rather pedestrian. Although disappointed by the limited selection we were hungry and looking forward to a good lunch. The vegetarian butternut squash in a [small] Yorkshire pudding, and roast lamb arrived quickly on a very large plate, with the vegetables on the side.
The veggie option was a pre-coked and microwaved Yorkshire pudding filled with an unidentifiable (perhaps cream cheese) filling, the bottom of the Yorkshire was chewy and hard, presumably from being microwaved. The butternut squash was cooked well, but the spinach was clearly unwashed as it was gritty. The generous portion lamb was nice, but swimming in watery gravy.
The vegetables let everything down. On the whole they were overcooked, but the chief obviously has a particular hatred of cauliflower, cooking it to slop…As other items on the menu came with “whipped cream” hoping to avoid canned dairy products I was delighted to see that Banoffe pie came with “cream”. To be disappointed… My pie looking, like a chocolate cheesecake arrived accompanied by a portion of nitrous infused cream :( I’m not sure why but the chief decided to used ginger biscuits and a lot of chocolate in his desert, it tasted nothing like it should have. Perhaps chocolate had been added to disguise burnt toffee… The bread pudding was noting special, soaked in custard before it arrived.
All in all, this pub would be a fine stop for a drink on a walk, but not a place to eat unless your pallet and teeth are failing you!!
Had a meal tonight, 25/6/2010, at the Dog & Muffler. My wife chosse chips with here scampi and these were awful chips. When we commented to the waitress we were just told that they were not allowed to serve the bigger chips which they serve at quiz evenings becuase they now have a rosette?? This means they can no longer serve frozen chips. Although supposedly homemade, these chips and their presentation spoiled an otherwise reasonable meal. No alternative was offered. We won't be back in a hurry.
Great pub based just outside of coleford.
They offer a variety of food which is all delicious, its a little on the expensive side but its worth every penny.
The staff are friendly, the pub and restaurant are always clean.
Also a child friendly pub.
I would reconmend this one of the best pubs in the Coleford area especially for food.
