This restaurant never disappoints. The customer service is exemplary here and the food is always of high standard. You never feel rushed into leaving and on our last visit they managed to squeeze in my son at last minute who wanted to join our date night!

I've been here many times over the last 5 years, most recently dec 2016. It never disappoints & for me the best Steaks are to be had here, venison & black pudding a particular favourite that many of us get. The Fish dishes are also good, as are the specials they do.

Went January 6th for a friend's retirement meal. Had a superb evening. The food was to die for and the service was excellent. Menu varied and the prices were reasonable for the type of venue. Will definitely be going again.

Went here for a family lunch where the food and service were excellent. We sat downstairs which was quite quiet when we arrived but busy by the time our food arrived. I had the 3 course menu with carrot & coriander soup to start, steak & chips for mains followed by lemon tart for dessert. All the food was really... More

I had booked a table here for my friends homecoming from Toronto, 08/12/16. He said he wanted a good steak. So i thought, let's try the Cowshed. The place is lovely, great decor. The staff were great and very attentive, the wine was fantastic, we had a really nice Chilean red. But unfortunately we ordered a Sirloin each (medium/rare). The... More
