Ye Olde Dun Cow Inn
Ranked #4 of 9 Rugeley B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2013

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 down there!! The Dun Cow smokies is a starter to die for!!

We didn't stay here but had a wonderful evening meal with friends,
we chose different meals so we could get an overall look at what they were offering ,
I have to say I was impressed with all of them, all well presented as well as just right portion sizes,
The cheesecake is to die for.....
Very good food as well as very good customer service who didn't rush you.

Had dinner with my wife and we were airports at the quality of the food. It was excellent. We spent about £30 per head which is a little on the high side for the area but justified. Wine list needs plenty of work. Waitress hadn't a clue what rose wine was and I quickly got the impression that the owners know very little about good wine.

Slightly off the beaten track if you are not from the area, but well worth it.
The food was really fantastic and they had a fantastic choice of specials too.
We were naughty and had some deserts, which are well worth a try........
