Enjoyed an amazing meal for two in this intimate restaurant. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. Enjoyed so much that booked a further meal before leaving restaurant. Highly recommended

First time to the Cow Shed - great service, lovely surroundings - good food. Starters arrived very quickly - too quickly? Saw some microwaves lurking through the kitchen door? Have I been watching Gordon too much?

This was the best restaurant we have visited for some time, it's only small and the service is very personal nothing is too much trouble. The food is cooked to perfection. Highly recommend.

Great service and exceptional quality. Early bird menu is very good value with a good choice of options. Would highly recommend The Cowshed. It's one of the best restaurants I've been to.

What a lovely little place, on the edge of town centre. The food was amazing. Staff very friendly. Can't wait to go back and try something else off the menu.
