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.

We visited Tapnell Farm and booked for lunch at The Cow, which is on the same site. It was absolutely incredible! Although it had been recommended to us, it exceeded all our expectations. We all agreed it was the best burger we'd ever had. They made it look easy to make everything work perfectly. We'll definitely come again the next time we're on the Isle of Wight.

Our visit was great - been to IoW a few times and only heard about here through a friend - would have visited earlier had we known about it. Great food, affordable for families and kid friendly. Good to have a drink in the club room after the meal with a game if fussball with our son before heading home.

Staff are lovely, the food is good, worth a visit. Prices are not cheap, but are value for what you get.

A really enjoyable meal for 12 people. The restaurant accommodated us well & all meals arrived at same time.
The Cow is always great for burgers but two of us who were eating fish found the plaice dish especially tasty.

Highly recommend, we were a party of eight and every dish was delicious. The service was just what you want – staff were very friendly but professional and not overbearing. Nothing was too much trouble. Particularly recommend the Matador burger and the potted crab.
