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.

    Excellent Food, presentation is lovely and the staff are fast, efficient and very friendly. I love the open kitchen, and the fact that you can see the chefs working makes it more personal. They look after your dog the same as you, offering water if they need it. Really relaxed atmosphere with freshly cooked local food, where possible

    Amazing steak & chips. Kids loved the burgers and the upstairs games room. Lots of choice, warm welcome & great service.

    I've just spent 20 minutes writing an extensive review only to run out of characters and as I can't be bothered to write another lengthy one I'll be a bit more succinct.

    This restaurant was good enough to cause us to return the following day after our first visit and we were on the island only for a weekend with plenty of restaurants to choose from so it's a good measure of its quality that we chose to return. Good burgers, excellent choice on the specials board, well cooked food, good drinks and attentive a polite staff.

    A note for those with children. A burger from the children's menu is only slightly smaller than one from the main and no different in terms of ingredients, bun etc and extras can be requested for an additional price such as cheese, bacon etc. so if you're worried that the children's burger will be too small or inferior to the main menu burger then you don't need to. It works out cheaper too!

    Great food as always. Lively atmosphere. Great burgers but also good veggie options.

  • (**** 23 May 2019 by Sophie from London

    Been here many times and had fantastic food but it’s changed it’s name and I’m not sure if it’s changed hands. The burgers were inedible, greasy, lumpy and over cooked. They’ve also started charging extra for the coleslaw that used to come with the burger. The chips were lovely and the service was good.

    Delicious food from a very good menu choice. Staff were helpful and cheerful. the fact that it was full and when a table came empty it was quickly filled says it all.!
