Having stayed at this establishment last weekend I can only say that we had a very good experience, the staff were welcoming and friendly and helpful. The bedroom and bathroom were clean, comfortable and more than adequate. What more could you want? No complaints at all.

I am a local, and have used the pub part of the Dun Cow for decades. This was the first time I stayed there, and it wasn't impressive. The staff - who are never very efficient when I go for drinks, mainly because there simply aren't enough of them - took quite some time to check me in. The room was big but too close to a slamming door - on the upside, on a truly terrible snowy day, it was plenty warm enough. Wifi was sporadic, not reliable, and there was no cooked breakfast. The Dun Cow seems to rely almost entirely for its business on its food, with drinkers and hotel guests seeming to be something of a nuisance. There is nothing overtly wrong with it, it's just not very good - and, annoyingly, there is nothing wrong with it that wouldn't be sorted out by employing a few more staff and encouraging basic customer service. Try harder, Dun Cow! I ended up just using it as a base, and going for drinks at the far more fun Green Man, just across the road.

Bad service staff and manager down graded and too high a price for what it is. FULL OF MISERABLE EMPLOYEES AND BADLY RUN not recommened for those who want a good time, you will be on a horrible outlook on life as the staff do not smile no friendly atmosphere. They say but not deliver.

Stayed here for one night. Initial impressions were positive - the Inn looked lovely in the early evening with the snow falling. Room 1 was large and comfortable. We had requested the sofa bed to be made up but this had been overlooked. However, I made a quick trip down to the bar to ask for this to be done and it was all sorted in 10 minutes. Just after the member of staff left, we then noticed a wet/soiled towel hanging up in the bathroom behind the door. Didn't want to make too much of a fuss as a) they had been prompt in sorting out the sofa bed b) we were only there one night and c) the room with breakfast for the 4 of us (2 adults 2 kids) cost just £35.

Only other downsides were that the room suffered from road noise (the Inn is right on the main road so you should expect this) and the continental breakfast was a little stale but edible (I guess it depends what time you go down to eat)! Overall, this was an average night's stay. Can't say we would be rushing back as this was more a convenient stopover on our way to Suffolk but at the price we paid, we can't grumble too much. Prefer Innkeepers to Travelodge anyway.

Didn't eat at the Inn - tried the 2 for 1 Marstons pub in the next village (The Boat House). Really good and right next to the Canal.

Went for a beer and stayed the night. (Ate out elsewhere so can't comment on food or waiting service.) Bar area looks and feels nice (bit short on staff though), and the Tiger was very nice.

Rooms comfortable enough, but I was half cut (actually, fully cut) so I wouldn't have noticed any of the niggly stuff.

This was an overnight stay with friends, as we were attending a function in the area the next day. We found the Inn welcoming and enjoyable. Lovely ambience of an old coaching inn, brought up to date with modern amenities. The evening meal was very good. The bedrooms were a surprise. Excellent rooms; spacious yet cosy. Appropiately furnished and comfortable beds. Bathrooms also spacious and very modern and clean. The continental breakfast was also excellent, having lots of choices and all to a good standard.
I understand some of the previous reviews. I did wait for sometime to check-in, but I had already been bought a large gin & tonic, so this didn't matter! (besides which this is really an Inn, not the Ritz!). The organisation of the dining room was a little haphazard, but again this did not really matter unless going for a very special occasion, and the food we all had was lovely. As for the floor boards in the bedrooms, yes, they did creak, but that is what a 17th century coaching inn does!! Re the breakfasts, I suspect there has been a dramatic improvement since one of the previous review, as our breakfasts were good.

I celebrated an important anniversary at this friendly pub/hotel. From the moment we got there to the moment we left we were treated very well by the staff. The room was spacious and the food was very good. In addition the deal was good value. Yes, it's a pub/hotel so you get a lively atmosphere but for us that wasn't a problem. I will certainly stay again if I'm in the area. Thanks.
