We were looking forward to our meal at the Dun Cow as it advertises and presents well. When we arrived, the restaurant was almost full, but we managed to secure a table. The menu offered a wide choice, at reasonable prices. However, on approaching the bar to order drinks, we found the bar was manned by only one harassed young lass who was both taking meal orders, together with taking and obtaining drinks orders, slowly, from a line up of patrons. There were other staff wandering around clearing tables, and delivering meals, but no one seemed to bother helping out the young lass. After waiting for some time, and observing how long it took to serve only one customer, we gave up.
So, unfortunately, we decided to give The Dun Cow a miss if this is what their service is like, and we found just across the road a great little pub, The Green Man, see forthcoming review.
However, we will return to the Dun Cow to give it another try, it may have just been an "off" day.
