Booking was so easy even when I had to extend the numbers, I did it on line and got a very quick response. Food is amazing and so are the staff. Good selection on the menu with a wide variety of options. It's a great place to eat and even welcome dogs, with a blanket and a bowl of water.

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.

This is a must visit restaurant when we come to the Island. Always good quality.

The welcome and ambiance were lovely. The seating well suited to a group. The waitress was very accommodating taking our orders. We dined with friends who live on the Island.
Unfortunately we were all underwhelmed by the food, particularly the vegetarian burgers. Whilst the atmosphere was lovely the food did not stand out.
I had wanted to visit the restaurant for a couple of years so had booked this as a treat to end our short break. Overall this was ok but I wouldn’t return. Very average.

Small dishes...Small fish and chips for £9 was good for our 3 year old grandson but pretty tiny for an adult. The large portion seemed to be same size. Few chips with burgers.. again fairly highly priced for what you got though tasty. Staff were very patient and obliging though with our 4 small grandchildren.
