For those who love a good old Cotswolds pub

Now in our tenth year of trading, The Old Spotted Cow is a traditional country pub in The Cotswolds offering excellent real ales, a considered wine list and freshly-cooked contemporary British food in a relaxed environment. We have been well reviewed in the Good Pub Guide 2014 and are proud to say we have been entered into the 2015 edition. We take pride in offering a warm and friendly welcome to all of our guests weather you are just poping in for a quick pint or for a relaxed supper or lunch in our Garden for when the suns out or next to the fire when thing are a little more frosty in the winter months.

Steeped in almost 200 years of history, our Cotswold-stone pub is on the outskirts of the pretty village of Marston Meysey. Set back from the road and surrounded by attractive gardens, we enjoy open views over the fields - making our tranquil rural location the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Inside, The Cow boasts a rich, warm ambience with exposed stonework, oak floors, old beams and log fires in winter.

Come and relax over a casual meal with friends, celebrate a special occasion, or just enjoy a drink in the warmth of the bar.

We also have ample free parking available.

Group bookings

Whether you're planning an intimate dinner with friends, a birthday party, or a small wedding, we'll be more than happy to help. We want you and your guests to have a great time so we're very flexible about arrangements and will take care of all the details. Rest assured, we offer a personal service that's attentive to your needs - so if there is anything you require, simply let us know.

For parties of more than 10 people, we normally ask for a pre-order. Please speak to Anna about your requirements, we can either create a menu specific to your event, or help you select choices from our monthly menu. We can also host dinner parties on your behalf with a set menu and wines of your choice.

Outside catering

We have limited capacity for outside catering but have formed a working partnership with Cotswold Bar Services. We can also recommend various local caterers, marquee companies and relevant suppliers.


Children are very welcome at the Old Spotted Cow, especially if they are well behaved!

We do prefer to seat families with smaller children away from the bar itself, and we do not allow children to sit on the bar stools. We have a stash of colouring books and crayons, puzzles and other games to keep them amused and if the weather is fine, the garden is a good place for them to romp around.

We have two high chairs here if needed, and a children’s menu is available for those that prefer plainer food.

Disabled access

Being an old building, the front door is relatively narrow. Standard wheelchairs do fit through it, but unfortunately motorised wheelchairs do not. Internally there are no stairs to worry about, and plenty of manoeuvring space between tables.

Staff are always on-hand to help, but please note that we have not yet been able to complete the works required to provide customised disabled toilet facilities.

Please feel welcome to talk to the staff about how we can make your visit a comfortable one, especially if there is anything specific that you may need.


Well behaved dogs are very welcome in the bar area, provided that they are dry and on a lead. Fresh water and dog biscuits are always available for them. Please do not allow them to foul the lawn, though.
