    The staff were excellent but the food was disappointing. Portions massive, burgers too salty and didn't have steak available which for a cow co restaurant I was very surprised for it to be out of stock. It never has been in the past.

    Great place to eat with fantastic food and awesome music. We enjoyed a variety of meat and plant based foods from the menu along with a class or 2 of wine which were all superb.

    Great food, lovely attentive service considering all the challenges. Ambiance quite only due to very sensible social distancing. Felt super safe! Great night.

    Super quirky setting, ordering on ipad was new experience but was quick and efficient. Lovely helpful staff. Thank goodness steak was precut as everything is paperplated, but nice and blue! Burgers very tasty! Recommend it especially with kids!

    This restaurant was great! The staff were extremely welcoming and made a lot of effort to make us feel comfortable. Once the rules (due to the Pandemic) had been explained, we were able to easily order our food from our phones. The drinks were delivered within minutes and the food didn't take much longer at all- it was all delicious! We will 100% be revisiting this lovely place.

    The second time I have been this summer and never disappointed. The burgers are the best ever and the dirty fries are amazing. My son who is 6 loves the burgers too and I have never seen him go quiet while he devoured the whole thing plus more fries. Can't wait to come back again.

    We had an amazing meal here. Everything is ordered via an app which is fantastic for speed of service. The staff were all very friendly but the main highlight is the food. It was fantastic, slightly pricey but worth every penny. The burger was so moist but we couldn’t finish our meal the portions were so generous. They lost a point because the seat was slightly sticky and they got my wine order wrong but come on they can’t be completely perfect.

    Our second visit to The Cow and it did not disappoint. Service was excellent, being friendly and attentive from the moment we stepped in. Food was great - we had the Big Smoke and Matador Burgers both with ‘Dirty Fries’ and they were both excellent. The COVID19 provisions were very good with hand sanitiser on each table and the food and drinks served on trays for us to take from. Thanks to the staff for a another nice meal out at The Cow.

    does the cow make the best burgers on the i.o.w????? absolutely!!!! so juicy and tender and love that you can take off elements that you don’t like so you don’t have to pick bits out. everything was freshly cooked and hot. perfect portion size for the chips. the staff were welcoming and helpful and very efficient. the whole restaurant was super clean. just wished i was staying on the island to have a return visit.????

    Our ferry crossing was cancelled so we were running late but a phone call to the Cow to tell them was met with the happiest girl who couldn’t have been more helpful about our table.. put us at ease for 5 very hungry visitors! Great place, cool and funky. Our food was fresh and hot and service was perfect again all smiles! Thank you for what had been a long day!!

    Have been before and despite a more Covid-necessitated reduced menu with fewer steak options (actually just the one) 5 burgers out of 7 meals were all excellent, as were the steak and fish & chips options.

    Absolutely lovely food! Very clean premises. A little pricey thou. With Covid you order your own food & drinks via their app - simply to use. Quick service

    Stunning setting, wonderful staff and, most importantly, great food. Chips, chicken and the burgers were all spot on. This is an absolute must if you are on the island!

    Great setting at Tapnell Farm. Although we had an inside table reserved we decided to take one of the outside tables and enjoyed our meal in the sunshine in a lovely outdoor setting. Burgers were to die for, as were the rosemary and ‘dirty’ fries! Kids meals were great too and nice cold beers to wash it all down. All in all a great find and well worth a visit!
