Amazing food & service...

Went with friends for a catch up... The restaurant is spacious with dining available across 2 floors. The menu is very varied with lots of choice for most tastes. I would recommend the Camembert starter to share - it was delicious.. All the food was cooked to perfection and was delicious. The... read more

Been here a couple of times previously and came here again with work for an evening out. Good food, good service, enjoyed the meal. Steak was cooked really well to how I wanted it. One of the best steaks I've ever had.

We hate here one lunch time after seeing the well priced lunch menu that The Cow Shed offer. We both ordered the chargrilled chicken sandwiches, with a side of chips to share. Nothing wrong with the food, just a little underwhelming. Side green leaf salad was drowned in balsamic vinegar and there wasn't much too the sandwich aside from the... More

It was very busy but the staff were not rushed & were very friendly and accommodating. We sat downstairs where there were only approx. 8 tables & had a view of the open kitchen. Upstairs was bigger. There... More

Had the earlybird deal last night. Excellent food . Went with two friends and we all had the goats cheese for starters which was delicious. I had the salmon and my friends both had steak. Really enjoyed our meal. We came here just before Xmas for a meal and enjoyed it so much we wanted to return. Glad we did.... More
