Honest Food

Each dish starts with decent, honest ingredients, creating a menu that is simple and uncomplicated; above all else, its about staying true to the origins of the food.

The commitment and dedication to sourcing the best possible produce, while supporting West Country farmers and producers is vital to The Cowshed, as without them the restaurant wouldn’t be what it is today.

Over the years The Cowshed has developed close relationships with the wealth of local producers and skilled merchants, and draw upon their expertise to develop seasonal menus based on redefining traditional British dishes.
