Would recommend. Food was really nice, pricey but I would say worth it. Staff very friendly. Didn’t have to wait long for food. Only thing I would say the brisket was really salty. Mac and cheese is amazing. So was the corn.

What an amazing night! We had the Dirty Cowgirl platter with Honey Butter it was just gorgeous, cooked to perfection!

The staff were very welcoming and friendly, my boyfriend had arranged for a plate to be bought out to propose to me with and we had it outside on the Deck which was lovely thank you!

Excellent food and service. All staff were extremely polite, helpful and chatty. We will definitely visit again! Friends have seen our photos on social media and are keen to visit.

only criticisms:
Difficult to find the entrance to the restaurant. We ended up wandering into the main hotel where staff kindly showed us to the restaurant.
Ribs and chicken wings were fabulous but very sticky - a finger bowl with the main meal would be a great idea.
Chairs and sofas in the lounge - really fashionable but not very comfy when you're a bit older as they were were very deep, not very supportive and difficult to get out of.

Always a pleasure to come for food and drinks here. Food is great, Mac ‘n’ cheese with your meal is a must. Pornstar Martini is the very best.. still not had a dessert yet as we’re always stuffed after our meal.. must make room on our next visit….

This was our second night in succession at the restaurant but unfortunately this time the food was really disappointing, we had the “ludicrous platter” with some extras too but the spare ribs and the pulled pork (basically 50% of the meal) were far from succulent and sliding off the bone! They were more like leftovers from the night beforehand reheated, as they were incredibly dry and you couldn’t even pull the meat off the spare ribs, totally inedible and at £100 just for the platter you would expect a fair standard of food at least.

It was such a shame as the food was very good previously, typically this was also for a special occasion but unfortunately we left hungry and deflated.

The staff were very apologetic about the matter but that was pretty much as far as the compensation went which was quite surprising given that half of the platter was returned to the kitchen, I wouldn’t have expected to be charged for this food in any establishment and especially when you could hear other customers complaining about the same issue.

I do hope this was just a one off but I also hope that the customer service levels are improved by the management as they really shouldn’t still be charging customers for food served to such a poor standard and especially when it is returned to the kitchen.

We ate here for a second time after a fantastic meal and lunch the day before

The food on both days was excellent - we had the hallomi burger which had slaw and a sauce and tasted so nice with fries

We also had the American burger with cheese and bacon with fries - it was the best burger I’ve ever had - the quality of the products was second to none

All meats are smoked overnight outside in a large wood fired smoker and it really makes the difference

The bao doughnut and warm chocolate brownie were flavoursome and came with good ice cream

I can also strongly recommend the burnt ends of brisket in a soy sauce and the corn on cob with parmersan both are excellent

The staff - Danielle and Anthony T were brilliant - very attentive, friendly and helpful throughout

I can highly recommend The Korean Cowgirl

Really lovely food!

Downside was lack of a side salad apart from Asian slaw.
Also we went outside to sit by the Firepit and the waiter could not light the fire pit
Other than that it was lovely!

We visited on Friday evening and the food was fantastic. The vibe and restaurant decor/style is fabulous. I had previously been to the Korean Cowgirl in Canterbury which to me is just a small black room (still amazing food) but this place is completely different.

The bill came to £81 including a £9 service charge - this included a couple of beers and mains with a couple of sides so average in terms of price. The service was OK, it was busy so having to wait for our bill to be settle and having to ask for sauces was no issue and neither was the £9 service charge as this again is expected in restaurants like this. We then left and went on to the lounge to finish our drinks and ordered another - this is where my critiscm comes in.

I did not see any mocktails on the menu and was bored of drinking diet coke so umed and ared about ordering another. The waiter said they had 3 mocktails so I chose a peach belini which really threw me at £14 plus then a £1.75 service charge on top!! My partner was embarrassed that I then questioned this with another member or staff as I honestly thought I had been charged double and she told me that they are the same price with alcohol (still can't get my head around this). The waiter had the card machine ready at time of ordering so I did not get a break down of my bill. I just find it wrong that I had already spent £81 on food and then was charged £1.75 for any further drinks orders each time and £14 for a mocktail with no alcohol. I wouldn't mind but it tasted like a glass of grapefruit juice, no peach and was defintly not a peach belini! Please be mindful of the service charges on drinks and the rediculous price of non-alcoholic cocktails which I feel is unnecessary.

Although the food is amazing, the service is very slow and not asked if we would like more drinks when glasses empty. Twice this month we have been here and the service has been very slow..
the team are all very pleasant and friendly when we were served.

We was left waiting 25 minutes passed our booked time , We found the price for the quantity was not of a high standard as I would have expected . Our party were left hunger even after spending over £200 . The food it self was amazing but just not the sizing you would find at other similar high standard restaurants. The staff were polite and helpful overall, setting , music and lighting were lovely , and overall feel was really nice . For us it was just dish sizing for the cost seemed extremely low in quality.

The food was faultless. Decor was lovely. The downside where we was sat directly in front of a screen which played the same song & music videos on repeat throughout the entire meal which can be very irritating. Also one of the members of staff came across quite rude and spoke to other staff members loudly when walking past us asking why certain tables where still there and praising for pushing cocktails and drinks orders. We understand that business is business but personally our table of 6 then just thought it was unprofessional to be discussed whilst in the dining area in earshot of tables. There was an approximate 17.5% service charge added to the bill which we asked to be removed due to the lack of service we received.
