    The Cow has good covid measures in place, it is very well set out with plenty of space. The food menu is restricted but the main menus do have a good variety but the only downside is the dessert menu only consists of "tub" ice cream which is ok for kids but perhaps not so for adults. All the burgers/fries received to our table were absolutely delicious - cannot fault any of it, cooked to perfection!! Highly recommend here, will be going again for sure...

    Amazing. Loved every minute and the Burger was sensational. The gentleman with a great funny mask on helped us with the ordering on the iPad. Lovely guy, so warm and friendly. The ladies there were too. Thank you

    When my sons and my family visit me on the Island they just love to have a meal at .The Cow. A strong favourite is the Matador burger! Personally I am proud to take them there, but I would like a little more choice for myself, other than burgers, buns and chips, as I am in a low carb diet! I was also disappointed to only be offered ice cream for dessert, as surely cheesecake etc could be on the menu at not too much expense for yourselves? I very much appreciate the care taken over hygiene in the present circumstances.

    This is the 2nd time in as many weeks that we have visited for a dinner and both times the food and service has been outstanding. The views from the top floor are outstanding and our grandsons absolutely loved the food and views. We will definitely be back very soon for the best burgers and fries ever at fantastic prices.

    We had a lovely meal. Staff were friendly and welcoming, and the food was delicious. Best burgers we have had in a long time, and the beetroot slaw was amazing! Only negative was families walking around not wearing masks/standing next to our table without them whilst chatting to another table.
