I have been here 3 or 4 times, (not by my choice) and never been over impressed but then again it's been ok. The last time was in June this year, I ordered the T-Bone medium rare, it came well done in parts and medium in others. I appreciate T-Bone can be difficult to cook, but if you can't get... More

We took our friends here for a 10th wedding anniversary meal. The food was excellent all had the steak and the service very good. The only problem was the wine we wanted was out of stock, Very reasonable on price will definitely be returning

Me and my husband went here for a meal on the rare occasion we get the chance to go out. We do normally head into Leeds but fancied staying a bit closer to home. We went to the cow shed years ago and remembered how nice it was so thought we would return. From start to finish our experience was... More

On our last visit we took advantage of the early bird offer; 3 courses for £18.95 I had steak, which was cooked to perfection and my wife had the Parma wrapped chicken.... More
