please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Spotted Cow is tucked away behind the Market Square next to a livestock market. I made it just before they were closing on Friday evening. There are a number of small rooms, which give the pub character. But it had a fairly worn feel. Ales were Tetley's Cask, Fullers Front Line, Wychwood Hobgoblin & Bradfield Farmer's Blonde.

The Spotted Cow was the last of the 3 pubs I needed to tick from the 2016 GBG and its possibly not what I was expecting.

The pub didn’t feel like it had a huge amount of history or a locally important interior as written about just felt like an old fashioned locals pub.

Situated next to the cattle market the pub is split into 2 areas, a snug room at the front that I didn’t visit as no-one was sat in here, and a slightly larger open plan area to the rear with a real log fire burning. The half a dozen punters were in this rear room with a couple more out the back smoking.

4 hand pumps with 4 ales , the Tetley's was on good form, the other choices all being from the Marston’s stable.

Stopped just for 1 drink before moving on. I didn’t really get the feel of this pub but not everyone in the GBG is a great pub they are listed for different attributes.

went in the tiny front bar where you go back 40 years. best pint of Everards Tiger I've had for a long while. Black Sheep was also excellent. No food, unfortunately, which left room for more beer. Excellent little pub which should be preserved at all costs.

The atmosphere isn't very welcoming for outsiders, there is a definate local clientele who dominate the space within the pub! A very male dominated environment!

This pub has no longer got Cask Marque Accreditation, the only pub in the area with Cask Marque Accreditation is The BlackSmiths Arms in Swinton
