Restaurant description

A unique venue bringing together original features and contemporary decor, The Cowshed at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel derives its name from its original purpose on the farm; it housed the owner's herd of dairy cows from 1931 until 1980. Guests can relax in a comfortable, modern setting with cow inspired lighting and cow inspired furniture.

Traditional Afternoon Tea is served in a bright and spacious setting at The Cowshed. On the menu is a sumptuous selection of delectable finger sandwiches, savouries, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam, mini cakes and biscuits, in addition to a range of award-winning teas. Tewin Bury Farm Hotel received an Award of Excellence at the 2019 Afternoon Tea Awards.

From October 2019, The Cowshed will come to life on Friday and Saturday evenings as it transforms into the Cowshed Steakhouse. Working alongside the best local suppliers around, the restaurant team offers an amazing evening experience.

The newest venue at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, The Cowshed is a 6-minute drive from Welwyn North Rail Station and easily accessible from the A1 motorway.

    We had a lovely afternoon tea with free flowing prosecco. The food and service was great, and our glasses were never empty. We were able to swap certain foods as well. Would definitely go again.

    My friends and I came to the Cowshed for afternoon tea to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were meant to be sitting outside due to Covid restrictions but it wasn't set up so we were unable to (despite us ringing a week ahead and being assured that this would be an option). The staff were all very helpful and catered to our special dietary requirements. Nothing was too much trouble and the mini lemon meringue pies were lovely.
