The meal was excellent, if I had had the meal at home I would have been licking the plate. The Service and staff were excellent.

This review is a little late as we visited in December 2016. There were several parties in on the day we visited but this didn't affect the service. Food was served quickly and the steaks were cooked to perfection (not always easy when there are large number of customers) the price was reasonable and i would definitely visit again. The... More

Every time I visit the Cow Shed I am never disappointed. Fantastic food, drink, service and knowledgable staff. Even taking my mum next time for her 70th birthday 03/06/2017 can not wait.

Regular visitor to this amazing restaurant and thought it was about time I put on a review. Cosy and intimate. Food is the best. Nothing ever too much for all the staff. If you want to visit a restaurant that has it all then The Cowshed is for you. A hard one to beat.

Absolutely gorgeous place, food is fantastic , not a huge menu but lots of specials to choose from. Steaks looked lovely, I had venison which was perfectly cooked. Lots of beers and a good wine selection. Staff are very friendly and attentive, but don't pester you. Highly recommended, must book as it's not a huge place.

You can choose from and early bird menu, a la carte or specials board, all food equally well cooked and very... More

I took my son for the early bird steak and chips; both were divine. This was the first time Id been back in 3 years and the quality of the food and service remaines top notch. I recommend the ginger and rhubarb pudding I loved this.
