About this property

The Miners Sling

"The Miners Sling is a very popular eaterie and B&B in this thriving Forest Of Dean. The Pub itself is beautiful, light and airy, decorated very simply with great sophistication. The crowd is comfortable and chatty. The menu is classic British with twists, confident and inventive. What's cooking? For starters, try the Madgetts Farm Caesar salad beignets or the 48 hour sourdough bread and Netherend Farm butter. For mains, you could have the straight forward ribeye steak au poivre with chargrilled tomato and Triple cooked chips, or a complex dish like the Trio of Monmouth lamb with with rosemary and whipped potato. Very strong wine list & local soft drinks and ales

Overnight stay at Miners Sling
We booked for a one night stay before a wedding. Weather was very hot which made the rooms hot however our stay was comfortable, beautiful surroundings. We heard the quality of the restaurant were excellent however the bar and restaurant was closed on Tuesday evening and unable to eat or drink on site which was south my disappointing as we wanted to try the food which come highly recommended. However we understand the situation and didn’t put us off. Breakfast the following morning was beautiful, quality food and presentation, service was excellent. Bottled water and fruit juices were available for us which was great due to the hot weather. Small venue with only a few rooms but quality and service was excellent. Would like to return again.

6/10 Good

Nice and quite in the country only 2 issues. Pub is closed Monday > Wednesday so no food or drink available in the pub - only short walk down to Orepool Inn though where food was great- Breakfast is not served until 8.30am so no good from business perspective and felt cheated having paid for breakfast in the rate so ultimately i paid £80 per night just for a room
