The guy who served us was brilliant (didn't get his name but he said he'd only been there a couple of weeks). We've had a few places with terrible service recently so it was really nice to have somewhere where someone was genuinely helpful and friendly. Food was great but more veggie options on the menu would be good.

Visited for the first time in a very long time and I’m so happy we did! We loved the pub! The food and drinks were excellent and I can’t wait to go back! I am more than happy to recommend The Cow - thanks for a great night!

Really great service, atmosphere, setting, food. The amount of food you get for what you pay isn’t great at all really disappointed. This will be my last time dining at the cow.

All 3 of us thought the food/drink/service was excellent but we did think the portions were really small

Not been here for a long while. In fact it was still the Black Cow then and you'd only just finished the annexe at the back. Superb food, great service we'll definitely be back very soon.

Get rid of the iPads you are a country inn with great food Our server was excellent but staff are clearly not trained to use them Talk to customers take drinks and food orders don’t just tap away at the table it’s not what we want We were also surprised to see customers moved from a high table with stools just because they were only drinking Is this what you want your guests to see Good job your food is so good!

Second time visiting the Cow and it was lovely, I did find my main over priced for what I got ( catch of the day) Cod. I also feel the drinks are over priced too.

I booked to treat my dad as he’s just found out he’s very poorly and got to have an op. I wanted it to be a special breakfast and it was far from it. I’m a coffee snob and my flat white was in an espresso cup. Then my scrambled egg came Luke warm and without my toast - which came out after when I asked and it wasn’t even toasted and buttered like it said on the menu. It wasn’t as clean as it usually is and the table wasn’t set ready - even after I’d booked. I won’t be coming again for breakfast.
