This was the first time we had been to the Cowshed. Our son recommended it to us. The food was amazing! Friends we went with, one was vegetarian and she was extremely happy with her food choice. The place was comfortable and we felt we had plenty of space around us. The restaurant was lovely, lots of wood and brick an authentic and well thought out decor.
We will definitely book again.

Have been here quite a few times and enjoyed it. Came with a friend as I recommended it, and ordered a fillet steak, but I received a fatty piece of rump steak. I didn’t want cause a scene at the time due to why we were out to eat in the first place, and when I messaged the restaurant the next day (with pictures) they were rude and told me that I was wrong, and that I did in fact receive fillet. The customer service was not good following this feedback.

This is unfortunate as the staff are lovely and so is the atmosphere, but unfortunately the restaurant doesn’t take kindly to feedback when they have produced customers with the wrong food. We left a large tip due the waitresses being so friendly, not for the food.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am pleased we managed to sort something on the bill for you and a huge apology again for not making your experience amazing. As I said via TripAdvisor, please give us a call when you book next time and we can save a portion of ribs for you to ensure that this doesn't happen again.

Easy to book online, Although busy, all guidelines were followed, service was prompt and friendly and liked the electronic menu via QR code. Food was outstanding, Asian ribs were delicious and the small rib was tender and tasty. Portions were a nice size although I couldn't quite finish the fruit crumble! Would book again with no hesitation.

Service was great. Food was blummin lovely and plentiful. I've learned that "Frickles" are a thing. Loved the discussion about monkfish and postcards! Tables were distanced, menus were via QR codes, staff were in masks, tablecloths were disposable - felt safe, that's for sure.
We will absolutely be back - there's more on the menu I need to try!

This is our second time to the cow shed and it did not disappoint 🤩 cocktails are on point, love the strawberry and mango daiquiris 🍹 the ribs starter is absolutely lovely they fall apart, my partner had the scallop special and said it was lovely too. We then had steak, bone marrow sauce, onion rings, chips and mac & cheese for our main and not one bit of food was left, we didn’t have time for a pudding as we arrived a little later than our time slot but the first time we come I had the lotus and choc chip cookie dough and my partner had the choc brownie.. they were both soo nice!! 😍

The food was excellent , wife even mentioned it was one the best starters she has had which was the prawns and chilli jam. Portions are generous so be careful if not a big eater!!
Service was generally good but we felt a little rushed, reason for this being as soon as we said no to desserts (quite literally after finishing our mains) or asked if we wanted another drink the plates were taken and then the bill arrived. Then we discovered we were charged with someone else's drinks of around £14.00, the waitress said thank you !! but apologised when the new bill arrived.
I would go back as the food was very good and hopefully this was a one off event

Probably the best roast pork I've ever had! I often get disappointed when choosing to eat sunday roast out as it needs to be better than I can cook at home. This was excellent, the best belly of pork I've ever had. Good portion too, big potatoes and yorkshire pudding. My only disappointment was the side of cauliflower cheese was not very hot, but didn't stop me enjoying it. Other options on the menu too, so partner happy with the chicken burger. We will definitely be going back for another sunday lunch. Efficient staff, clean tables, service excellent and child friendly. Overall very relaxing and the music playlist was so good too!

Although briefly delayed getting to our table due to the people before us still settling their bill (we had to wait outside to meet covid restrictions, the food and service was fab! It is clear they have taken care to meet the covid guidance and we felt very safe there. We had the steak tacos to start... They were fab and really good value for money! Then I had the Gourmet burger and my husband had fillet steak and chunky chips! So so good! We were stuffed so couldn't fit in dessert (I was disappointed... I'd seen the menu and they sounded yum!)! Really reasonable price and friendly waitresses! I'm never disappointed coming here! Defo worth a visit if you haven't been!

The service was friendly and attentive from the moment we got there. The food was delicious, there was literally nothing I could fault. They make a very good Mojito which not many places do well! The ribs were incredible and the burgers are some of the best we've had!
