Dined at Cowshed for the first time last weekend. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy, every table was full! I hoped this was a good sign, and I wasn't disappointed!
Had booked the table well in advance for eight for four of us, and was surprised to be shown to the table straight away on arrival. Too often have I booked a table at other restaurants and still had to wait fifteen minutes to sit down. No such problem at Cowshed!
The waiting staff were very attentive and very pleasant. We didn't really know they were there but everything was cleared promptly, drinks were delivered quickly and we were never waiting for anything, which is the sign of slick service contributing to a well run restaurant and a great customer experience.
The wine list was well assembled, with a good variety and a good range of prices - something for everyone. The food menu was just the right size, with an exciting specials board to complement the main a la carte. I opted for the fillet medallions with dauphinoise potatoes, and it was mouth-watering! My friends also thoroughly enjoyed their meals, one of whom is a vegetarian and who was initially anxious about going to what we thought was a steak house. She had a risotto which she said was full of flavour.
All in all this was a great night out, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was lovely for a social evening out with friends and there was a variety of different types of diners in the restaurant which shows its appeal.
I've booked in next week mid-week to try the early bird menu which looks like it will be great value for money! I'm sure I won't be disappointed!
