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.

A friend and I had dinner here on a Thursday evening as it was recommended to us. We were glad we had booked in advance, as it is obviously a very busy establishment.

4 mains..... 4 puddings......4 stars Really good service, a varied menu, not too expensive, OK surroundings. We were there on a Tuesday and it was fairly quiet. It had rained and flooded the village that may have kept people away. We all,enjoyed our meal and will,go back. Recommended

Thank ryjoel
