“A lot better since the new take over!!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

After not having been in dows for many years, heard from friends that it was great place to eat we decided to go today, and very glad we did.
Dows has been taken over now and it looks bright colour, beautifully decorated inside and not so cluttered. Very warmly feel and doesn't look like a rough pub inside!
Mixed menu, from fish, risotto, venison, burgers, macaroni ect. Starters from £3-£6 and mains most mains are about £9.95! Very large portions and beautifully cooked! Staff very friendly, only thing is the waitress didn't come so see if needed any more drinks half way through our meal, but not an issue as it was very relaxed! Will defiantly be coming back.

“Great food, reasonably priced.”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

When you enter this place you are met with a fresh bright and very clean lounge bar with helpful and friendly staff on both sides of the bar. There is no hesitation in staff to find out your requirements.
The restaurant was also very bright, spotlessly clean and comfortable with more friendly nd efficient staff on hand.
The menu had a great choice, catering for all tastes. Our meals arrived in good time, well presented and, of course, delicious all the time punctuated by attentive but unobtrusive staff ensuring we had all that we needed.
I do not hesitate to recommend Dows to anyone who enjoys great food.

“Very Good”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This pub has had a turn around. The service is good and the food is freshly cooked and very good vqalue for money. There is a bouncy castle for kids and an outside eating/drinking area for hot weather. Inside there is a nice conservatory away from the bar. All in all while not 5 star it is still a very good eating experience.

“Great sunday lunch”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Heard good reports about dows recently so decided to give it a go.We were welcomed as soon as we came in which does not happen alot these days. Menu very extensive but we opted to go for the roast pork very tender and presented with care with all fresh vegtables and potatoes.And the sticky toffee pudding was to die for.Will be back for sure.
