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.

    Ordering via app is time consuming - took ages. We forgot an item and another drink, also took ages. Does it have to be like this?

    It was all very well organised and explained to us. Loads of space on a nice big table and we used the app to order our drinks and food. The burgers were delicious and very generous portions. The upgrade to dirty fries was definitely worth it. Staff were friendly and helpful, will be back!

    Covid19 app ordering measures in place made it a fun experience! The restaurant is a ‘barn’ with appropriate decor and amazing views from the mezzanine level. Delicious pavé steak, Cajun chicken and salads delivered to the table by friendly staff.

    As a regular visitor to The Cow I was pleased once it opened again. Our party was 4. There were just a few tables occupied inside. The new regime of ordering was tried. Ordering through the app didn't go well. Several attempts failed. We were then offered an Ipad on which to place our orders. Frustration was felt by all on our table by this time ...we hadn't even ordered drinks. So, finally when the Ipad also failed the server took our orders using a pen and pad!!! It really did mar the experience. The food is always enjoyable but it has put me off. If the server had only offered to take our order sooner when the app was obviously not working I wouldn't need to send this. As our usual go to when we have visitors it will now make me think twice.

    This was our first experience of eating out for some time. Things were very different but we’ll organised. The quality of food was superb as always! Hopefully we will get back to normal soon x

    The staff did everything they could to make us feel welcome. The food was fresh and full of flavour, and the place had a great atmosphere.
