We hadn't been to The Dun Cow for years, but had heard a few good reports recently, so decided to take grandparents for a pre-Christmas Sunday lunch. We booked a table for 7 a week earlier and when we arrived the table was ready and waiting for us. Very efficient, organised waiting staff, drinks were on the table within minutes,... More

A lovely place nestled not far away from he town centre. Great warm atmosphere and lovely comfortable dining area. Staff very friendly, knowledgeable and could not do enough to help. Food was nice and quick to serve between starters and mains (could not fit a pudding in but they looked tasty too). Would recommend and would love to come on... More

I'd like to start my review by reiterating the title - the staff really were exceptional, especially the manager who was obviously extremely proud of his establishment. The atmosphere and decor are both cosy and friendly and just what you'd hope for when the thought of home cooked, British gastropub style food enters your mind. I am only writing this... More

Lovely pub with great food and fantastic service. There was a beautiful Christmas tree and a very festive feel. In particular the manager was really accommodating and made sure that everyone in our party was catered for and happy with everything.

We absolutely love the Dun Cow!! Having lived just down the road from this pub for over 25 years we can safely say this pub has never been as great a place to eat and drink as it is now! The menu is varied and dishes always delicious, and the service is fantastic. We go regularly as a family and... More

Visited here with close family for dinner. Although very busy this pub restaurant's service was excellent from start to finish. Food was well cooked and presented with reasonable prices. The bar area sells a good selection of cask ales.

Had a lovely meal here today with my husband. The food was excellent. I had the cheese and onion pie which was fabulous and husband had the beef roast which he thoroughly enjoyed also. All fresh home made produce. Really nice chunky chips with the pie. Had starters and desserts which were also excellent! Nice friendly staff and manager who... More

So sunday lunch for a family of four. Limited menu but i thought, do a few things and do them well. Sunday roast was just ok. Reheated roasties, soggy crackling, pre bought yorkshires. just nothing you wouldn't get at a chain restaurant. On the up side, staff were nice and desserts where big school portions of crumble and bread and... More

It's been more than a few years since we visited this pub which used to be a favourite destination. After standards slipped we took it off our list, so this visit was an exploration. Well it's back on the list big time. May be new owners, we don't know but the lunch time menu was great. Service impeccable and very... More

Dun Cow is a family run destination pub with dining, just outside of Knutsford centre in Ollerton. There is a large selection of dishes from pub favourites, sandwiches, chargrill section, a la carte options, and fresh seafood, all delivered and prepared daily. We have a beer garden at the rear, parking and a playing field should your children want to run around. We can cater for functions, express business lunches, quiet meals for two, family dinner, pit stop breaks on the A537, girls nights, meze by request, and of course, cask ales and coffees. We look forward to seeing you soon.
