Have visited on several occasions with a friend. Delicious pies of the day served. Not disappointed by the Lamb and mint or the peppered steak and potato. Lovely deserts too.

Thankyou for your review sir. I remember your order. You were the very pleasant gents on table 17. I am disappointed your views were not shared with me yesterday before you left. I thought your empty plates were an indication you enjoyed it. Sorry you will not be returning. Regards Curtis More

Dun Cow is a family run destination pub with dining, just outside of Knutsford centre in Ollerton. There is a large selection of dishes from pub favourites, sandwiches, chargrill section, a la carte options, and fresh seafood, all delivered and prepared daily. We have a beer garden at the rear, parking and a playing field should your children want to run around. We can cater for functions, express business lunches, quiet meals for two, family dinner, pit stop breaks on the A537, girls nights, meze by request, and of course, cask ales and coffees. We look forward to seeing you soon.
