Very open style of restaurant. Noise levels not to bad. Good menu range. Prices certainly in the higher brackets. A fair range of wine and beers listed, certainly nothing came cheap. Noting that price does not ensure the wine will be good. Meals well presented and very tasty. staff helpful.

Family run business that takes great pride in what they are doing. Been going here infrequently for 15+ yaers, and the standard of service and consistency of the food are hallmarks of why... More

We dined at the Spotted Cow last night and booked a table in the bar as the restaurant was booked out for a function. The service was excellent and prompt - drinks and food service at the table - no need to line up at the counter. The bar attendant explained why the crowd was a bit noisy and apologised.... More

Have been the as a single and in groups of various numbers. Always enjoyed the food, entertainment and the drinks. If you're flying solo, the staff make you feel welcome, unlike other venues.
