The Cow Restaurant and Bar is one of the Isle of Wight’s most unique places to eat, serving a selection of freshly cooked gastropub classics, and an extensive range of hot and cold drinks against the backdrop of a stylishly converted Swiss barn at Tapnell Farm. The vibrant rustic restaurant is surrounded by panoramic views of Tennyson Down, The Solent and The New Forest.

Served at lunch and dinner, The Cow menu offers diners a wide choice of both meat and vegetarian options, many of which are available gluten-free. Having specialised in beef and dairy dishes over their first 3 years, the restaurant launched a brand-new menu in 2018. The Cow’s talented team of chefs, led by Colby Meredith, now champion locally sourced produce, with fresh takes on home-cooked classics, like sausage and mash, macaroni cheese, and fish and chips. These new dishes, which are also available as “lighter bite” sized portions for smaller appetites, join the stellar line-up of burgers and steaks that the restaurant has already made its name for.

Tucked away in the rural heart of the island, The Cow is only a 15-minute drive from the Isle of Wight’s capital town of Newport.

    The children's cheese macaroni we ordered was way over priced for what we got. The fries were overly hard also with the burger. The setting was amazing and the interior of the restaurant but the food was not as grand as you would think/expect. Things may have changed because this was in August 2018.

    We were celebrating my sons 14th birthday and booked the table using the internet booking service. The menu was extensive and the special looked great, we went for the fish and chips, burgers and a vegie option. The order was delivered quickly and the presentation was spot on, the food was hot and very delicious, we emptied all of our plates.

    As always, the food was excellent along with the service, such attention to detail and the fact that dogs are welcome makes it a perfect place for us to eat, highly recommended.

    Having been recommended for the quality of their steaks, was very disappointed on our first visit, to find them, bland, and just about average

    I cannot praise the team at The Cow enough for their exemplary customer service. My ferry was delayed and on contacting the restaurant they happily kept the kitchen open until
    We arrived some 20 minutes after they were scheduled to finish service. The food was delicious, easily the best burger I have ever eaten on the Isle of Wight. I cannot recommend the food and the team at the Cow enough for going above and beyond the call of duty.
