This venue has ceased trading and has CLOSED DOWN. There is also "The Spotted Cow" B&B listed which is the same venue. TA have been informed and hopefully they will take the appropriate action.

The Spotted had been rapidly going down hill, with uninspiring menu, bad food, average beer and unwelcoming service. Not surprised it has closed down only round the corner from me and would past it to find somewhere better.

The spotted cow has been closed for some weeks now. I live nearby and will review again if it re-opens. Meanwhile you will need to find an alternative.
