See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The pub calls itself an “old english bar & restaurant”, traditionally specialising in steak meals. Unusually, this is a horseracing pub, showing every race every day on one of the TVs. The name is supposedly derived from a Tudor steward, Mr Dun Fow. However the name is not as original as you might think, according to Whatpub there are currently nearly 20 other 'Dun Cow's spread throughout England (Dec 2017). For a time in the 1990s the pub was owned by Mad O'Rourkes Little Pub Co, so was briefly known as the Dun Cow Pie Shop. The pub has a resident ghost, last seen in 2003.
