We should have been arriving here at about 7pm - but due to weather problems getting back from the Isles of Scilly we didn't arrive until almost 11pm. The Managers was really helpful when we called to explain the situation - she offered to stay until midnight to see us in - but fortunately we were there before then . It was great to come across such good customer service . Breakfast was good, sadly we didn't get to try the evening meal.

Called in at 1:15pm for a bite to eat. Ordered two drinks and when they arrived we asked for a menu to then be told " sorry we are not doing food because we have still got some on going work in the kitchen ",thought it strange as there was a table of people sat eating food. Whilst finishing our drinks the barman came to us and said " we can do some food now but it will take some time. Looked at the menu and couldn't believe the prices for simple pub grub. We finished our drinks and left. Outside on the car park was a burger van !!!, very strange, will not be returning to this place in the future.

Had lunch here as part of a special event. Food good but nothing special. I am not sure I would rush back.

It has been my pleasure to frequent the Dunston on a regular basis since November and it must be said I have enjoyed every minute. The staff are always helpful and friendly. Charlotte Matt Joe Amelia and Dyson are all very professional and should be commended for there Stirling work front of house. Behind the scenes in the Kitchen is a young Genius who's name I do not know but I can tell you he has a smile to charm the devil, the singing voice an angel and produces food the gods would que all night for (not that they would have to).
I have heard that this unnamed chef will be leaving soon, I shall ware black in mourning and greave the loss.
We wish (let's call him) Lord Chef Almighty all the best for the future and welcome the new chef.
To sum up the Dunston is the home of magnificence and should be visited at every opportunity, it's a bit pricy mind but what the hell

Certainly better than the old hotel and has been given a modern make over

Good choice of drinks and friendly atmosphere. Large garden area for the summer
