The Cowshed is in a lovely setting; great interior and very tasty food. We visited on a Saturday evening, and it wasn't particularly busy. Unfortunately we waited about 30 mins for someone to take our orders (apparently they had to wait for the kitchen to become clearer), and over an hour for our main course to arrive (we didn't order starters). As other reviewers have said, we were given a small sample of soup each, but there was no explanation as to why this should be (we presume it was because of the wait, but no one mentioned it). While we understand that cooking everything freshly will take longer over an hour's wait on a not very busy evening with no apology or explanation is taking it a bit far. Only one other gripe: I asked for my steak to be well done due to being pregnant. It was still pink in places when it came, but as we'd waited so long, I just ate around it and explained the problem when our plates were cleared. Still, the food WAS very tasty - just wouldn't attempt visiting on a busier night.
