This is a very pleasant place to enjoy a nourishing lunch with or without children - The cafe has a lovely out look and sitting outside when the weather is kind, there is plenty to see and watch as children enjoy the animals and play area. The huge variety of exciting flavours of delicious ice-cream (all made in the premise) are the main attraction, but all the food and drinks are good and enjoyed by people of all ages. With very friendly service and plenty to enjoy even in cold wet weather, the Rowdey Cow is a great place to go throughout all the year.

The menu when we visited was a bit limited, but the quality of the food was very good. Service was good with very little delay, except for the time to prepare the meal. The ice cream is fantastic, as are all of the desserts. Great outdoor space with farm animals present.

The boys always love a visit to Rowdey Cow and I try to fit a visit in after school so they may have their teas there. Superb countryside surrounds this working farm, with wonderful views to the Roundway Downs and Oliver Cromwell Hill - so take your cameras. Icecream is of course for dessert with fantastic choices, and tea might be beans on toast with cheese some days, other times a larger meal. Whatever, the boys enjoy it, and it is served by helpful staff who are well used to children at the counter, ordering their favourites. Afterwards fun in the play areas and talk to the horses, geese, rheas, and whatever else is around. The tractors in the barns are perhaps suited to younger children, though the 8 year old has a ride around scooping up wood chips whenever he can. Very suitable for Mums and babes, older people dining out, the ambience and setting seems to suit everyone. I believe Sunday lunches are on offer too.

Lovely setting
Fantastic ice cream

Inside is small/cosy and can be uncomfortable for space with children ( plenty outside eating space )

Service , very very slow . We had almost eaten our ice creams by the time we got to till to pay .

Please state on your menu that the tuna sandwich is in fact tuna and sweet corn . Yes this is a very minor complaint but I would of ordered something different had I known .

Looking forward to sampling more ice creams in the summer .

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you had to wait to pay for your ice cream, normally you pay for it at the same time as buying it - may be there was a problem with the till or a new member of staff unable to use it but either way I apologise. I'm sorry about the tuna description. This was a typing error on my part and was noticed after a day and all menus changed. I'm glad you enjoyed the ice cream and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
