Visited early evening on a very sunny day. Welcomed by friendly staff to this nice looking, quaint pub. Menu was fairly limited but had quite unusual dishes, which may have accounted for this. I chose a spicy and very tasty fish stew which was served...More

Thank you for your review - glad you enjoyed it overall. The Tanzanian fish stew is authentic to East Africa, where vegetables are in the sauce rather than on the side. Its where I was born, and Swahili cuisine is one that I am particularly...More

I've taken a while to respond, as I was really stung by your review and thought it best to cool off a while before replying. I'm really AM sorry to hear you weren't happy, and that you thought your eggs were underdone. I take criticism...More

The Old Spotted Cow is a pretty village pub on the outskirts of Marston Meysey, the northern-most village in Wiltshire. We have records of it as a pub as early as 1841, when the first census was taken, and it still retains many of the old features befitting of a Costwold pub: open fires, low beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls... Set amist pretty gardens, with views of open fields and plenty of off road parking, the Old Spotted Cow makes a charming retreat from the hurly burly of modern life. We strive to keep our menu fresh and seasonal, striking a balance between much loved pub classics and some more diverse dishes that reflect the landlady/head chef's many travels. Booking is recommended as we can get busy.
