Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went for a Sunday roast and we could not fault it. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was beautiful - the beef was cooked to perfection and the pork was equally as good with the best crackling - delicious! All followed by...the most gorgeous desserts - Warm chocolate brownie and ice cream and Sticky toffee pudding. All in all, the whole experience was excellent - we’re looking forward to going back again.More

Phoned Landlord prior to going as we were looking for an overnight stop in the Motorhome, left a message and he called us back very shortly. Stayed at a lovely little grassed area away from the main pub car park so was very quiet, had...a meal and drinks in the pub that evening and it was superb. Charlie is a great Landlord and his staff were equally as charming and efficient, definitely won't be the last time we stay here...ThankyouMore

We enjoyed an excellent family meal to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary with our younger son, his girlfriend and their cavapoo Dunston. All of the main courses were delicious including 2 x scampi & chips, 1 x lamb shank and 1 x 3 tapas dishes...consisting of chilli prawns, garlic mushrooms and honeyed sausages. The desserts were equally scrumptious including 3 x banoffee waffle and 1 x warm chocolate brownie. Highly recommend The Old Spotted Cow with delicious quality food in a really old world country pub setting.More

Beautiful typical country pub and thought we'd try it for a Sunday roast. We had pre-booked and when we arrived at 2.00 it was very busy. We were given a nice table in the main bar area. I always do wonder when a pub is...as busy as this if it will impact on the quality of the food or how long we might have to wait for it!. I shouldn't have worried.. our Sunday roasts came out in perfectly good time.. I'd say about 20 to 30 mins from order and very delicious they were too. We paid our compliments and thanks to the Chef later for doing a great job. He told us they were one staff down in the kitchen. Given that I thought he was doing a fantastic job! Friendly, helpful staff, great food and prices. What more could anybody want! Well done the Old Spotted Cow.. we'll be back!More

We received great service here from the landlord Charlie and his excellent team of service focused staff. Nothing was too much trouble, even to providing GF beer that was not on the menu. Great food and company, highly recommended.
