I visited Ye Old Dun Cow a few weeks ago with a group of friends. We received such a warm welcome and staff were attentive and friendly. The food was superb; we all had different dishes and they were all beautiful. The fish dishes were particularly good. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

We visited the Dun Cow between Christmas 2016 and New Year 2017. The night we visited there were problems in the kitchen and the service was very slow. But we found the menu very good, and the food beautifully cooked and presented.

Had a family get together, (midweek lunch) with people coming from Worthing, Florida, Wales, London and Manchester. Picked this pub based on reviews. It was an excellent choice. Comfortable tables and seating, friendly and helpful staff, good parking and wholesome, tasty food. I had the liver which was tender and delicious. Everyone else said what a good time they'd had....

Very friendly service, warm welcome as we arrived, attentive but not overpowering. We ate from the set menu which was brilliant value. The food was high quality, clearly all freshly prepared. Starters of smokies and fish cakes were fantastic. 2 had burgers which they declared delicious. I enjoyed the steak and my hubby loved the turkey roast. 2 of us... More
