Great restaurant, the steaks here are excellent and we were well looked after by very attentive staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all meat lovers.

Great presentation and ambience but expensive. Had four heart eaters so needed to order more potatoes and vegetables. For the price, we were disappointed to be charged for the extras. I felt I could have done better myself.

Food was okay, steak I had was VERY fatty, and the seats were far too close together, could hear the entire conversation of the person next to me, will not be returning.

Went here for their set lunch on Saturday, booked for 12.30 and was told that they needed to table back by 2.30 which was fine as we had tickets booked in the Cinema for 2.30. Queued up in a very cold vestibule fighting with a curtain whilst one member of the staff did their best to accommodate a lone walk... More

I went to the cowshed for breakfast this morning, i ordered the bulls with two poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, I received two fried eggs instead of the poached, oneof the people on my table received hard eggs which is acceptable at home if your granny is cooking and likes thinga well done rather than at a highly respected establishment...

Went here for breakfast as thought it was going to be pretty good by the look of the menu. There's a bit of a hotel buffet breakfast thing going on with a table of stuff on one side of the room and coffee jugs and a converyor toaster on the bar. It's worth noting that nobody explained how this system... More

My friends are regulars and love this place, my partner and I were disappointed. My lamb was so rare I could only partially eat it because I could not get my knife through the uncooked bit although the small rolled up belly section was nice. The portions of vegetables that came with the roast were very small and uninspired only... More

One of the best places for steak in Bristol. Not cheap, but then steak isn't. The meat is really good quality and consistently well cooked. You don't have to worry about them messing it up here. Sauces and sides are great and the puddings are amazing too!

Thank Victoria K

At The Cowshed we bring the taste of the countryside to the city. For us the most important thing is knowing where and how food is produced. We focus on the quality of the farming or production methods and the ethics and integrity of the grocer, breeder or supplier.
