Evening meal and overnight stay. Service and food were excellent, rooms clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced (shared a twin room). We were met at breakfast time by the staff who were very friendly and provided an excellent full breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend.

It was our fifth stay at the Ye Olde Dun Cow and once again we couldn't fault it. As usual the welcome and service from all the staff was absolutely impeccable and the food was faultless. In fact we have now had five meals sat by the fire in the bar and there is not one item on one course... More

You can tell the chef took pride in his cooking. The service was excellent too, we were late in leaving yet the girl... More

Friendly staff, fantastic food, I couldn't think of anywhere better to take my family & friends. Such a extensive menu available lunchtime and evening, reasonably priced too. Two of us on Tuesday evening then 5 of us on Thursday lunchtime. Looking forward to the next time.

A friendly family run hotel close to Cannock Chase with great food in the pub. The chef here is first class and will not except poor food going out from his kitchen. Always had a fantastic meal and service. A gem of a pub.

Lovely food beautifully presented, service was occasionally slow but delicious food made up for it. Very helpful staff to the extent that one of our party left her handbag and the waitress drove down the road after us to hand it back. Reasonably priced for what it is I.e. £17.50 for a rack of lamb with meals ranging from £11-£22.

With family over from Australia we wanted to take them to a traditional pub that also serves good food. We knew from previous experiences this country inn delivers each time. We were surprised at how busy it was on a Tuesday night. Food was once again of a really good standard and the scallops delicious, with the sea bass and... More

I visited the Dun Cow for lunch as part of a group of about 30. Sometimes a group of this size causes problems for restaurants but not n the case of the Dun Cow. We were welcomed by friendly staff, had our meals brought promptly and the quality of the food was excellent. One little comment the lunch time menu... More
