Not the pub it used to be. Overpriced food, not the best quality and far too many ingredients on the plate. Was not very pleased to be told we had to pay extra for vegetables, we never used to! Staff can be a little rude and not very professional. I was also a little surprised to see the food hygiene rating is now a one star on the Amber Valley Borough Council website. It used to be a five star, what happened?!

We would not return. Very disappointed. Our waitess was very helpful but we left feeling hungry having paid for a very expensive meal.

We visited The Dog on 06/02/2018 on a snowy night for a private birthday celebration. The pub wasn’t busy, yet we were greeted with complete disinterest. To be welcomed with: “I’m dealing with a problem at another table, I’ll be with you soon”, then walking away, wasn’t quite the charming greeting we either expected or should have received. Fortunately our complete astonishment at this was picked up, and the waitress returned to point us to a seat at the bar.

The pub is located in the pretty village of Pentrich on the edge of the Derbyshire Dales; there’s ample off-street parking beside the entrance to the pub. It serves modern British cuisine, and is popular with locals. This was my second visit. The pub’s interiors present a calm and pleasant dining experience; muted colours, nicely-laid tables, and a welcoming bar area add to the pleasant ambiance.

Our meals were very good. The Hanger Steak was cooked as requested; the accompanying peppercorn and whiskey sauce was flavoursome, and the sides of roasted cauliflower in truffle and hazelnut butter, and chunky chips, were delicious.

Our bill was incorrect; glasses of wine which had been order by the folks at the table next to us had been added on to our bill. It’s attention to small service issues such as this that figures largely in any future decision to return. We won’t be doing so in the immediate future. There are other options in the area.

Despite living only a couple of miles away, tonight was our 1st visit in a number of years & to be honest we had a wonderful culinary experience. All well presented along with great taste & combination of ingredients. We purposely chose to go fairly early but there was still enough atmosphere to enhance the evening. Service was personal yet well organised. All in all the whole experience exceeded expectation & would highly recommend. May not be able to wait until the next family birthday before returning. Great work guys
