Went there for lunch recently, used to go quite often but haven't been for a few years. Pub was quite busy although can't see what the attraction is, quite scruffy. Ordered fish and chips which were quite expensive, food was delivered promptly, huge fish portion, that was ok but didn't like frozen chips or the massive portion of tinned mushy... More

Stayed at this hotel following a recommendation from a business colleague and not disappointed. Room was snug but very comfortable and well appointed. The best bit of the visit was the food with an incredible selection of meals on offer and the quality was second to none Staff were very helpful 9/10 overall

Absolutely loved it here, we travel all over the UK but we definitely love the North East. The people are so friendly and the staff at the Dun Cow are the epitome of what hospitality is all about! Cannot praise them enough, especially (but not exclusively, Richard ), they made our stay special....Thank you.

The restaurant meals are slightly more expensive but equally delicious and... More

Went here with my fiance and Grandparents for Sunday lunch. Got to say the food was great, good sized portions and very fresh and tasty. I know this pub is meant to be vintage inside, but it could do with being a little brighter/lighter and perhaps slightly more modern. I did also find the restraunt area a little cramped -... More

Recently ate in the Dun Cow and it has not changed in 20 years. It is badly in need of sprucing up both in terms of the menu and décor. It is all very well being an old world pub but it needs more than that. The food was OK but expensive for what is pub food and the drink... More

Its years since I last visited and well, the food, the choice, the ambience and service quite simply can't be bettered. I don't know why I've left it so long - I will be back very soon you may rest assured. If you are in this neck of the woods, I heartily recommend paying them a visit, whether its for... More

This restaurant has Amazing food and the service is always second to none. There is a good choice of meals on the menu to choose from and they also have a good selection on the specials board. A very romantic setting for couples.

Nice staff breakfast was very good, plenty of choice. The place itself does need an upgrade worn carpets staining on the wallpaper a little bit dark going up and down the stairs. Beautiful display of flowers all over the pub and restaurant.
