We enjoyed dinner for 4 recently at the Cowshed; The steaks were great but come alone and the usual mushrooms, onions, etc all have to be ordered as extra sides. Overall an expensive meal in comparison to similar quality establishments.

We were a party of nine visiting today for a birthday celebration. A table downstairs with all the noise of the kitchen (the kitchen is open fronted into this small, windowless dining area) and being adjacent to the toilets was not ideal by any means....More

Really innovative and interesting menu! Much enjoyed. Good atmosphere and first class service and attention. The menu offers plenty to choose from and the quantities will please those with strong appetites. Very nice coffee to end off a lovely lunch. Thank you Cowshed.

Went there on a Wednesday evening as a group of 3 and the place was near full, which is always a good sign. The atmosphere is nice but nothing fancy or dark like some steakhouses. The staff was very friendly and the service was good....More

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.
