Visit the Cowshed on a regular basis the food is always of a high standard and prepared to order. The selection of starters and main courses are excellent and always well prepared and served attractively some times seems a pity to eat as they look so nice

Me and my partner really looked forward for a meal at the Cowshed, unfortunately it was disastrous. Steak was over cooked so very dry and chewy. But the most shocking was chips. Brown chips swimming in old oil this was end of beautiful story. I'm giving two stars only because the dessert was outstanding. But unfortunately never will visit the... More

So, this was a belated valentines meal. On arrival I was shocked as to how laid back everything was. Music was louder than I expected and the other diners were in jeans etc. WE WERE OVERDRESSED! So we were seated next to the window - which we love because we are 'people watchers' BUT.. I was freezing cold the entire... More

It was my first visit to The Cowshed and certainly won't be my last. Food was amazing and my steak was cooked to perfection. The service was fantastic and the friendly waitress was so genuine that I honestly didn't feel that she was being nice because it was her job!!! 😄 I can't wait to visit again.

Excellent meal. Super service. Lovely warm atmosphere. Beautifully presented food arrived promptly and was washed down with a lovely wine. It was hard to choose a dessert so we picked three different ones and had four spoons.

We had an excellent Sunday roast here. It's a little expensive for what it is, but just about worth it.

I have eaten at cowshed previously and sung its praises, however, I went with my boyfriend and I believe because we are a young couple we were ignored by staff. My steak was extremely undercooked. It had just been seared on all sides and left completely raw in the centre. We had to request Steak Knifes and after that It... More

Celebrated my sons birthday with family and his uni friends. Staff were great and the food delicious. We had the large table downstairs by the kitchen which I would thoroughly recommend. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Description
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.
