We have been to the Cowshed on a few occasions and have always found the food to be delicious. First of all, the place itself is lovely, somewhere you can enjoy a romantic intimate meal as well as an excellent environment for eating with friends.

We ordered off the early bird menu, three courses for £17.95. We both had tomato and roasted pepper soup which was lovely, warm and spicy and a generous amount. My wife had pot roasted chicken which she said was delicious and I had steak which was beautifully cooked and melted in the mouth. For dessert we both had chocolate torte, decadent and delicious.

I'd also like to mention the excellent service, attentive, polite and unobtrusive. I'm always really impressed every time I visit.

We will definitely be returning soon and I would recommend coming here to everyone.

Had the two course lunch time special priced at £12.95. There is a choice of 4 starters and 4 mains. My friend and I both opted for the steak, as this is predominately a steak restaurant. We weren't' disappointed the steak was delicious and cooked as per our instructions, rare. The accompanying side dish of chips were also very good, nice and crisp and piping hot.

This is a small restaurant so I imagine you'd have to book on a weekend.

I've eaten here three times in the last six weeks and its been faultless every time. Service and food fantastic. The breaded Brie is divine - the best I've ever had. Please take it off specials and add it permanently to your menu! 10 out of 10 every time and perfect for any occasion ....
