About this property

The Miners Sling

3.5-star inn, walk to Forest of Dean
"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
The Miners Sling offers 5 forms of accommodation with DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Flat-screen televisions come with digital channels. Guests can surf the web using complimentary wireless Internet access. An iron/ironing board and hairdryers can be requested. Housekeeping is provided on a daily basis.

A clean and quirky family run hotel. Lovely
Nice to stay in a family run hotel. Even saw the kids at breakfast. Room 5 was large, clean and well appointed. We had to text in advance to ensure there was someone to check us in but they were there on arrival so no problems. There were nice quirky decorations but nothing overdone.
