Ye Old Dun Cow is a pub with accommodation. We stayed a night as we were visiting family in near by Admaston. We were unable to get access to the room until 545pm, but we had booked a room before we arrived. We were advised at booking time that the only available room was a double with no bathroom, however,...

We see the Dun Cow as our local friendly restaurant, so we asked them if they could cater for 30+ people (our extended family) for a three course meal at lunchtime on a Saturday for a family celebration. We had a menu for everyone to make their choices in advance and it could be varied to allow for children etc....

Great and popular pub in a pretty village. Pub serves good food at a reasonable price. My breakfast was really nice too. My room was a twin room with a shared bathroom. Both were basic but fine for a one night stay. Pub staff were friendly.

Last night my husband and I had yet another wonderful meal at Ye Olde Dun Cow. We are very fortunate to live within walking distance so we visit the restaurant regularly. We both had the special starter (smoked salmon with local beetroot) and I have to say it was divine. My chicken and my husband's cod were both delicious and...

really disappointed with the dining experience this time round, been previously and enjoyed it. Friday evening only one other table occupied, lack of ambience lack of interest and a general lack of that something special that we had on previous visits, and for once we felt we did not receive good value for service and food. It was expensive which...

Stayed here for one night after visiting Alton Towers. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. We had booked a table for 8pm but as we were running late we phoned ahead to put back our dinner reservation which was no problem at all. In fact we were advised to come downstairs whenever we were ready. The meal...

We discovered Ye Olde Dun Cow last year when we wanted somewhere to stop overnight on our way to the Lake District and booked two nights, one on the way up and one a week later, taking a chance that it would be as good as advertised. We were so impressed with everything that we said we would go back...

Met up there for lunch with a couple of friends who were familiar with the establishment. What can I say but the staff were friendly and the food was superb: as well as the regular menu there was a big board of specials. Its a little off the beaten track but punch WS15 3LG into your satnav and get yourself...
