The Cow Roast Inn is under New Management including a very seasoned Chef who has some fantastic ideas & menus using local produce. It will take us time to settle so many thanks for your patience and we welcome all to our first Sunday roast on the 14th of December 2014 12pm to 2pm. Many Thanks George & Delcy
