Soup Dragon left this review about The Dun Cow
A large detached Vintage Inn chain pub, eatery and B&B. A former Georgian styled coaching inn, the front facade (phone died before i could get a photo) is in cream render, with a coach entrance, neo-classical porch and Georgian windows. At the back, which is in undressed brick (see photo) there is a patio area. This is also the main entrance now.
The interior is the usual Vintage Inn style of open plan, but divided into areas. A family foody kind of place these Inns are as eclectic as they get and as so, are fun to visit. I didn't eat so can't comment on the food. The decor is a mix of yellow, cream, white, clay, coffee wood panel and beams, flag floors, wood floors and carpet. The walls are a gallery of cartoons, prints and photogrpahs - including the pub and village. The service was fine and the place full of diners. I saw no TV nor heard any music.
Beer; tap stuff, with Peroni. On handpull there was Thornbridge Kipling, Bass and Everard's Tiger. Sadly, i had a traditional ginger beer!
A busy place, but Vintage is a chain that at least tries to give pub/eaterys a feel rather than the dull vase-ridden plastic affairs we often get.
