What a great little restaurant! We had to spent a night in Murchison and were expecting to have a pub meal...bangers and mash or similar. On a walk around the town we noticed a sign for a restaurant behind the local backpackers accommodation, even though it appeared to be attached to the backpackers and thus potentially less exciting than the pub we decided to check the menu....WHAT A FIND!! the meals were excellent, extremely tasty and well presented; The service was great, and overall the Cowshed is the best value for money we have experienced anywhere in the South Island ($40.00 for three courses and coffee p/p). We have paid twice as much at 5 star restaurants in cities in NZ and walked away disappointed. We recommend anyone who has the opportunity visit this restaurant to enjoy its fare.
