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.

    The food was good. 2 of us had burgers of different types; the third had mac and cheese, followed by ice cream. Portions were probably larger than necessary. Service was very good apart from it being a while before anyone took our order. The ambience was nice, with lots of cow photos and paintings. It is possible to eat outside.

    We were greeted at the door by a friendly member of staff and shown to our table. The layout of the restaurant gives you the feel of being in a big barn, lovely wooden tables, great pictures of cows on the walls and big windows to look out at the lovely views. the food was excellent and service was quick.
