The Dun Cow, a country pub in Rugby
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
The Dun Cow is named after a local myth. Legend has it that the Dun Cow was a "monstrous beast four yards high and six yards long" which provided milk to the locals. A witch made it go on a murderous rampage until it was slain by Guy, Earl of Warwick. In 1605, the Gunpowder Plotters also stayed in Dunchurch.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
