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.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Best burgers we have eaten in a long time! Quirky surroundings and worth a visit! We will be back!

    We were staying in Freshwater & drove passed The Cow a couple of times so looked online to check out the menu.
    We decided to book a table & we’re so glad we did. It’s a great restaurant, quirky & there are a lots of cows. Fab food, service & atmosphere.

    Food - good
    Drinks - good
    Prices - good
    But far too much noise from other diners and children

    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.
