The Fish and Chips here are lovely and the surroundings lovel, especially if you get a seat in the conservatory. The rest of the Menu is classic and simple, but well done, leave space for a pudding!

What a fantastic experience eating at the Cowshed! Beautiful restaurant and excellent food. The service was amazing. The view from the conservatory is unbelievable and has to be experienced. This was our first visit but it won't be our last.

The Cowshed is a family owned and managed business. Our philosophy is straightforward: "choose local seasonal ingredients carefully and cook them as simply as possible. Whenever possible we source local ingredients, thus supporting the Aberdeenshire community and providing a showcase for quality, fresh and seasonal Scottish produce. Since opening in 2010, the Cowshed has changed its style of food and service. We now offer a larger and simpler food menu which includes a mix of customer favourites, traditional Scottish dishes and daily specials, sandwiches, paninis, coffee/tea, cakes and bakes. Something for everyone to enjoy throughout the day. As a proud member of the Scotch Beef Club, we serve Scotch Beef PGI. With traceability and unique assurance which begins on the farm of birth, Scotch Beef is high on quality and high on taste.
