“Great food, great service, great value, enjoy your visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Ye Old Dun Cow has been transformed over the past few years from a sleepy village pub into popular pub restaurant.

Chris Hine, his son Christian together with his wife Georgie have worked their magic on the Dun Cow. The recipe is simple – consistently good food, well presented, served by a great team who provide excellent service and clearly take a pride in their work. Couple this with comfortable surroundings, log fire and prices that represent good value and you readily understand why this is always a bustling busy pub with a warm atmosphere.

Once found patrons quickly become regulars, booking is essential if you want a table – don’t leave it to chance, if you do you may be disappointed.

“Good menu,very nice lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We visited for lunch last week. The meal was very good quality and good sized portions, staff friendly and helpful, and the surroundings were very clean.

Not too many eating and we wonder if there was a lower priced lunch menu this might help to fill

the restaurant.?

N.B. ..........................The above statement is NOT a complaint. !

“A Great Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

First visit to the Ye Olde Dun Cow but won't be the last! Went with a party of friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. Very nice menu with interesting and varied dishes across all courses with locally sourced ingredients. Food well cooked and very attractively presented.
A good cut above the average pub grub offerings - more of a fine dining experience without the pretence!
Very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient staff - all in all a well managed kitchen and restaurant.
Real good value for money.
Next visit will probably include an overnight stay for just the two of us in one of the very attractive looking rooms.

Beautiful restaurant with a lovely varied menu. The food is all home made, cooked and served to high standards. We all enjoyed our meals and the homemade cheesecake is amazing, we shall definitely be returning.

“My 60th Birthday Bash”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

I enjoyed every moment of the evening from start to finish. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Everyone in my party enjoyed their food and we all had a laugh and a joke - its that sort of place where you feel at home but don't have to do the washing up afterwards!
