What Our Guests Think

Lunch with a view

Lovely place to eat. Great atmosphere and plenty to see outside.

The food was honestly amazing. So fresh and so yummy. The dirty fries were so nice we had to order more !!! Family of 5 which included one child's meal and 2 rounds of drinks was £90. We thought this was very reasonable and happy to pay more as food was so lovely.

Best burger ever

We had dinner at The Cow as we were staying at Tom's eco lodge at Tapnell farm. We were not disappointed! Great food and service. I had one of the best burgers I've ever had!!

Great for kids too with small portions and a menu they can colour in with the pens provided.

Amazing food

We found this by accident on our last visit and just had to come back! The burgers are amazing and the service is great!

What Our Guests Think

Great dog friendly place to eat

Had an amazing dinner tonight. Our steaks were perfect, so were the starters. Service was relaxed and friendly and our dog Marley was looked after too which is a huge plus for us. Themed restaurant is done really well, light and open we would recommend it to anyone.

Great menu

We managed to get our children to sit still for an hour 😂 whilst we enjoyed a burger each- the food is AMAZING and service was fantastic

Yum yum

Second visit and delicious both times, first time I had T Bone steak which was a real treat it’s really hard to find that cut nowadays, the onion purée that comes with the steaks are delicious, My partner loves The Matador burger! Look forward to our next visit.
