Been here quite a few times now and it never disappoints. The staff are very attentive but not in your face, really friendly and nothing too much trouble. Beautiful surroundings and the food has been faultless every time we have been. Definitely recommend

Visited this restaurant on a Monday night with some friends. It was my first time to the restaurant and we ate from the early bird menu for £15.95. All the starters sounded amazing and I could have easily eaten most of the menu. However, I decided for the rainbow trout and my friends opted for the soup and halloumi salad... More

A lovely place with excellent staff. We went for lunch with my sister and brother-in-law and they enjoyed it so much they booked for dinner for the next weekend (which they were lucky to get). A word of warning through, if you don't like rocket with balsamic glaze stay clear as everything came with it. Starters were delicious and the... More

Once again the family had an amazing meal here, the staff were very attentive and the food was the business. It was also nice to see the chefs work as we had our other meals upstairs. Many thanks guys keep up the great work . One tip for dinners, book early to avoid disappointment, definitely worth it

The Cow Shed is brilliant - the Early Bird menu definitely offers the best value steak around, and it's always cooked perfectly. Staff are excellent. Only think we'd like to see is the starter menu refreshed a little on the earlybird menu (although that might be because we go so often!). This and Iris are the best in Wakefield.

Others had chicken dish and said this was... More
