The building itself has a long history, which includes serving for generations as a meeting place for smugglers – a souvenir of those days can be found in the pub in the form of a ‘spinning jenny’: a device which used an arrow to divide up the contraband.
The present day building is a square built house with a conservatory extension – which can seat up to 45 for large parties. In the summer time rambling roses and an old magnolia tree bring a special enchantment to this ancient pub.
The hosts at The Spotted Cow are Michael & Naomi Collis and their business partners Paul & Sandra Moore, who run our sister pub, The Fox at Patching.

- Food service in the restaurant, bar and gardens
