    On holiday got told by a friend must visit the Cow as its great food and they could not have been wrong at all. The food was fantastic great taste great portion sizes and to top it off the staff were really friendly and helpful throughout. Would recommend anyone taking time to visit the Cow if they have the opportunity to do so it does not disappoint and myself and the family will certainly go again. Thanks to the Cow and all staff

    Fabulous time at The Cow, as usual. Covid set up is excellent. Food amazing. 8 year old grandson said best burger ever. Love that you can choose which burger items you can leave out of your burger rather than take out and waste. Matador burger delicious. Daughters vegan burger excellent. Can’t wait to come back!

    Nice food. Well priced. Service a bit impersonal. Some of it obviously due to Covid but very little interaction from staff. Ate and left without being acknowledged. I would go again as the food was delicious. Hopefully when all this is over normal service will resume

    Overall good. Well cooked. Lovely staff and safe, clean restaurant and toilets. Our only disappointment was that there wasn’t any vegetable with either the burgers or fish. For the price it would have been nice if a small portion of peas could have been included.
