Called here for lunch yesterday (Nov 4) as the place we intended going to for lunch was closed. Absolutely delighted that we did stop here as we both had a delicious meal. A swift greeting by staff as we entered and after placing our drinks order we selected a table and both the drinks and menus were brought quickly. We opted for the 2 course lunch menu at £9.95 and selected garlic mushrooms in cream sauce, homemade fish pie and gammon & eggs. The starters came quickly and were lovely and hot, served with crusty bread. There was plenty of sauce which really needed a spoon to finish. No long wait for the mains either once starters cleared, and my fish pie was certainly homemade with lots of salmon and lovely mashed potato. My partners gammon was a large thick slice cooked perfectly. The sides of vegetables, salad and sautéed potatoes were cooked just enough and not too soft. Although the sweets were tempting I'm afraid we were both too full to try but will do so on our next visit. The pub itself is charming, full of brass and copper and what must be a very inviting log fire on cold days. A definite lucky find with return visits planned.

We ate here on Monday evening, taking advantage of the Early Bird menu, which can be ordered up to 7pm (3 courses for £12.95). We had wondered whether we would be rushed to make way for later customers paying à la carte prices but not at all; service was very leisurely and we were there 1¾ hours, making for a pleasant evening. Although the pub was quiet, there was a cosy atmosphere and the waitresses were charming and efficient.

All the food was excellent, very hot and the portions of a good size - no attempt to save cost with meagre portions just because it's a cheap deal. My wife's pate and my fish pie were particularly good and there was a lovely selection of vegetables.

Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended!

Ye Old Dun Cow is a pub with accommodation. We stayed a night as we were visiting family in near by Admaston.
We were unable to get access to the room until 545pm, but we had booked a room before we arrived. We were advised at booking time that the only available room was a double with no bathroom, however, the bathroom was next door to the room.
We were happy with this arrangement for one night.
The accommodation is very basic, but clean . Our room did not have space for more than one suitcase and was very small. The toilet and bathroom next door were not sound proof and we were woken several times through the night by visitors to the bathroom. We had booked at table for dinner and the meal was very acceptable and the breakfast the next morning was substantial, but there had been no fresh deliveries of milk etc that morning.
The staff were exceptionally nice, but try as they may they could not get us any Internet access.
The pub is situated in the small village of Colton, near Rugley and would not be a must do destination unless there was business or friends in the area.
For one night it was acceptable, but I was surprised that it had received a Trip Advisor prize.

We see the Dun Cow as our local friendly restaurant, so we asked them if they could cater for 30+ people (our extended family) for a three course meal at lunchtime on a Saturday for a family celebration. We had a menu for everyone to make their choices in advance and it could be varied to allow for children etc. We had a lovely time. Everything was ready for us, and they waited for latecomers (due to traffic). All three courses and coffees were served quickly and efficiently by friendly staff. Everyone commented on the great food and wondered how on earth they managed to serve so many different meals to so many people so efficiently. They gave us just what we wanted - a friendly atmosphere where our extended family could catch up and chat over a lovely meal in a warm and friendly village inn.
