Lovely restaurant - had the chicken it’s was so juicy! A friend had the crumble for pudding and loved it - will definitely go back soon
Absolutely delicious roast dinner, the roast gammon hock was amazing. Would definitely recommend!
My wife has been before and said how great the food was. We both went last night and she was so right. The portions are fantastic and cooked to perfection and the staff couldn’t be anymore helpful. Would certainly recommend.
Really nice food, massive portion sizes. Lovely servers, downside is it’s quite pricey.
The food was stunning. We will be back soon to try more of the menu.
It started off okay, the waitress what really nice and helpful. When the food came my partners looked really nice and tasted nice but mine on the other hand was over done and dry. Towards the end of the evening we felt we were being rushed as they were closing up around us, the bar lights were switched off, so was the other seating area (time: 8.45).
At one point the waitress left the door open and was bring the out side furniture into the inside seating are, which one made the restaurant cold and two we felt like we were in the way. When we ordered dessert we ordered to take away as didn't feel welcome to stay. To this point the waitress shouts to the chef in the kitchen the order and says 'don't worry its takeaway'. This was then followed by swearing in the kitchen and other seating areas which could be clearly heard from the dining area! This was only 9.00, the restaurant doesn't shut until 9.30!!
I understand that people want to get home and finish early, but don't offer a 8 o'clock booking if you are not willing to stay open for this long.
Perfect food everytime we've been. Lovely atmosphere
Sadly disappointed by our visit. Meat tasted good but accompanied by very greasy chunky chips and onion rings. Really over priced.
Amazing! Fabulous food and great service! 100% recommend!
Amazing food and service! Good value for money! 100% will be returning
Very pleasant dining experience, dining with my son on his birthday. Quiet surroundings, pleasant service good food. Would certainly return.
Lunch food and service was great. Lovely decor and covid secure place to eat
Sit outside if you can , I had the ribs my wife the Barnsley lamb chop with bone marrow gravy - the gravy was delicious - if I had one gripe they should provide more vegetables ( but it’s a personal choice )
Best meal in Birchington - no best meal so far in this part of Kent lovely!
Food was plentiful, staff were pleasant. Rioja was nice but overpriced. As we were sitting outside it was noisy due to the bus stop.
Excellent food and service. Clean environment and covid precautions in place. High quality and highly recommended. Will definitely be back
Nice menu simple and good choice of protein, starters on un complicated menu. Great attentive service with no pressure to order or get out when finished, is bit pricey but for quality you don't mind and village setting expected
Great food with lots of flavours. The prawn starter delicious. Hubby was very pleased with the steak. Very attentive and friendly staff. The honeycomb sunday did not have any honeycomb but was obviously an error. We will definitely come back.
Excellent food cooked well with service to match.
Food was perfectly cooked and the portion sizes where amazing, felt the money spent could be seen on the amazing quality on the food served. Well worth a visit
Was a great meal and wonderful staff
We booked a table for 18:15. We went to the pub just across the road which was lovely for a drink before our meal. The service was amazing at this restaurant and the staff were really attentive and polite. Food was incredible.. we had starters and mains and it was great value for money. We would definitely recommend and can’t wait to return.
Our first experience at The Cow Shed was outstanding 😀 The food and value for our meal was brilliant 😀 Holly was also absolutely fabulous, super friendly, knowledgeable about the food and a delight to chat to 😍 10/10
Great food and great service. Would definitely return.
food was fantastic, large portions. service was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
would recommend for any occasion.
My 2nd Sunday Roast in a row and if its even possible, this was BETTER! Thank you
Food and service was just amazing. Will definitely be back again for more xx
A well overdue birthday celebration meal that just hit the spot!
We had the Sunday roast chicken, everything was delicious other than the chicken which was very dry.
Our steaks were tender and perfectly cooked. The lemon sorbet cheese cake was amazing.
Overall great food and service.
The booking texts and emails were a little intense but made us laugh.
We would highly recommend the Cow Shed for steak lovers.
Really lovely service and overall experience at the cow shed. Wouldn’t totally recommend the sharing steak for value, as it was £70 for a cote de beouf that didn’t include sauces or anything apart from a portion of skinny fries each. Having said that, the overall experience was great, so didn’t mind paying out for it. Cocktails were stunning and Katie was a fab server. Will be back again.
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. I am so pleased to see that you enjoyed your whole experience with us & loved the cocktails! We do love a great cocktail! Katie is a credit to our team and I am so happy that she was looking after you during your time with us :) I am very disheartened to see that you wouldn't recommend our sharing steaks. I have taken your feedback and passed it onto the head chef regarding adding a sauce to the meal also! The Cow Shed Team x
Amazing food!! Friendly staff will recommend to friends
The food was fabulous but boy, do you get huge portions, so do remember this fact when ordering.
We can't wait to visit again.
Fab marketing trick with the bill, 10/10.
