“No Sunday Roast at Cow Roast”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Have visited this place several times over the years and it just seems to get worse. On the last two Sunday visits along with 3 family members we discovered that they had no Sunday roasts. One member wanted a chicken dish of the pub grub menu, they had none. A vegetable Thai Green curry was watery and lacking in an assortment of vegetables. I resorted to the all day breakfast which was ok but then there is nothing much can go wrong with a breakfast that consisted mainly of baked beans. The other two companions found fault with their food and told the waitress but she didn't seem very bothered. There was only one person serving behind the bar and at table. We sat near a window and it was very cold and draughty. The place lacked atmosphere. On the positive side the Tring Brewery beer was excellent.

“It's OK and it's cheap.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

I'm not sure what this place is trying to be. Is it a Thai restaurant or a traditional pub grub venue? I don't know. We stopped here for lunch after visiting some people in Berkhamsted and went in as we were hungry and couldn't wait much longer. The service was luke warm, no real welcome, there were four other customers (1pm) which for a Thursday seemed quiet. We were presented with both the Thai menu and the pub menu but even if this was the best Thai food out there it seemed bizarre in that setting and the plastic menu wasn't selling it at all. I went for a steak and my colleague had lasagne. The steak was OK and quite tender, the lasagne was a mess and was crusty and dry but the portions were generous.

Other stuff: the toilets were freezing cold, damp and dirty, no excuse. The whole place was a bit grotty and could have done with a thorough clean. I wouldn't go here again and wouldn't recommend it.

“Very welcoming staff and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Popped in for a cooked lunch today and was greeted with a very polite barmaid. The English menu offers huge traditional choices. I have previously had their Thai food too which is to a very high standard. I look forward to our next visit. Thumbs up
