We’ve not been here for a few years and it’s changed a lot for the better. The new decor is very fitting with the location and is comfortable inviting. We loved the style of the menu which was a nice change and all of the food was excellent quality and cooked to perfection. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly and happy to help with anything we needed. Excellent value for money and the best meal we have had in a while. We will be back !

We came for a surprise breakfast for my husbands birthday we were a family of 4 The food was lovely and hot when it came and the pub itself was very welcoming with a roaring fire. Although the service was quite slow we weren’t in a rush so it didn’t really matter. The staff however were lovely and very professional and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely recommend to others and would go back

Food was great , staff very helpful and friendly. Just a bit quiet as we booked a late lunch, otherwise we really enjoyed this slightly different way of dining. Will definitely go again.

The Cow is a lovely little hidden gem. The food is delicious. The tapas style menu is at first a little bit daunting and confusing but if you just dive in and order, it won’t disappoint!

We thought the service and knowledge from staff was excellent. Very helpful. The food was over cooked and not a huge amount of flavour. We did explain this to our waitress who was quick to make things better. Overall we will definitely be back for drinks but not food.
