Being a regular customer of The Cowshed, I was a little disappointed about 6 months ago when I decided (after 18 months of loyalty) to look elsewhere for 'the best roast in Bristol'. What had previously had been untouchable had slipped a little. Not that it was bad or anything, just not as good.
We decided however to give them another try as our new favourite roast venue didn't have a table. We are glad we did. We were welcomed back by the lovely staff and even though we were late for our reservation, were not hurried. Starters were fantastic, but the main course (roast beef with all the trimmings) was exceptional.
The title of my review states a 'return to form', however I would say that the standards far surpassed even the best roast I have had before at the 'shed. Chatting to the staff, it seems that there were a few issues raised some months ago with the Sunday roasts and that through hard work and taking on board customer feedback, they have perfected the art.
I have to say that although it is a tough call, The Cowshed has won back my personal award for best roast in Bristol (The Star and Dove, Totterdown coming a close 2nd!). Well done guys!
