11 ( 3 generations) of us went to the Dun Cow for a 50th Wedding Anniversary lunch and really enjoyed an excellent meal. High quality food, friendly and efficient staff and amazingly good value. We hope to return in 10 years time for a 60th anniversary lunch!!

Meeting here with colleagues is always a pleasure. The staff are friendly, drinks well priced and the beers very well looked after. The food is just amazing and not expensive, well worth the money. The Chef obviously takes a lot of pride in his cooking and it really does show. Highly recommended.

Visited this on recommendation of a friend who lives nearby. The room was excellent and well appointed with tv, wifi a good en suite shower. The meal was very well cooked and a varied selection of wines and ales. Staff very friendly and breakfast can be served from 7am so a must for those needing an early start. Would certainly... More

Recently visited Ye old dun cow with a friend for a meal. This was our first visit to, what is described as a "Typical Village Inn". First impressions were very good, my friend had reserved a table which was nicely located in a corner of the pub next to a real fire. The staff were very attentive and drinks were... More

Visited with friends who had been before. The food was really good, the service was quick and attentive. We did try and book a room for the night but unfortunately they were fully booked. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed the evening, i would suggest that you book early.

We popped in for a quick drink just to have a look at the place with a view to eating at a later date. Very impressed, the manager showed us around and gave us a view of the menus. This was impressive as even if we had decided to stop and eat we couldn't as they were fully booked. The... More

We have visited the Olde Dun Cow before and had a wonderful meal with friends, so my review is a little late. However, given just what a super evening we had, again, I must share our experience. Firstly, the pub/restaurant is so warm, friendly and welcoming. Everyone, from the waiters and waitresses, bar staff even the chef are great. Pleasant,... More

Went there with my mother, wife and son. Found it difficult to choose from menu as so many things sounded tempting. In the end I went for the chicken with Parma ham and mozzarella, my wife went for the beef strips with bacon in a red wine sauce (stroganoff?). The others went for pork belly. All meals were full of... More

We went here for lunch this week, after going for Sunday lunch a few months ago. We chose from the set menu, which at £13 for 3 courses, is great value. All 3 courses were perfectly cooked and could not be faulted. This is some of the best food we have had when eating out. The service was great too,... More
