The Cow Shed Bar & Grill
Char grilled beef burger topped with sliced chorizo. melted Monterey Jack cheese, and pulled pork, garnished with gem lettuce, red onion, tomato, gherkins, and homemade relish.
Pan fried rump steak, served on a bed of dressed mixed leaves, peppers, red onion, and tomatoes.
Pork ribs, glazed in homemade smokey BBQ sauce, served with slaw, chips, and salad.
Service and staff were great, food was really nice. Sharing starter was spot on, medium rare steak, blue and bacon salad, mac and cheese and chunky chips were all excellent. Unfortunately the pulled pork burger was dry, the pork and other parts of the burger were fine it was just the burger itself. Price of that meal was deducted without any hesitation and they were so apologetic. I would 100% eat there again, great food, good feel and really nice staff.
I’ve wanted to eat at this restaurant for months. Finally went and it did not disappoint, cocktails were a dream and food was delicious. Great sized portions and flavours were amazing. I normally have to put salt on everything I eat, I did not even think of it until after I had eaten. Prices were great and lovely ambience.
Can’t wait to book again.
Late Sunday lunch all the food was very tasty especially the prawn starter and Jammy Dodger cheesecake ample portions with plenty of fresh vegetables couldn’t eat it all! Staff were very pleasant and attentive and the atmosphere was good will definitely go again!
The service and the food was spot on. Lovely cocktails
The reason for my low score for food at the cow shed in birchington, is because i booked a table through open table who sent me the menu. I had decided before i got there what i wanted based on the menu from open table (Stuffed Aubergine or Chicken Ceasar Salad) and when i got there, it wasnt on the menu neither was the falafel burger so decided to go with a chicken burger which was alright but was already disappointed. I wouldnt recommend anybody booking from this website and to check first on facebook the actual menu for the cow shed if you are worried about what to eat. To be honest i wouldn't recommend to a vegetarian as their isnt really much to eat if you were a vegetarian apart from macaroni cheese! its pretty much meat, meat and more meat and if that's your thing then crack on, i recommend it to you!
Very friendly staff helpful with any questions we had about menu.
As always lovely food, I had the lamb it was cooked perfectly my other half had the skewers and again perfect.
Love going it's always a lovely experience would highly recommend
Delicious food, huge portions, fantastic atmosphere and amazing staff!! We had a very nice evening and felt relaxed and the staff were so attentive and helpful.
Lovely cosy atmosphere. Food was really good. Staff were very polite and friendly. Will definitely be returning. Salt and pepper squid starter, halloumi fries, mac cheese hamburger and chocolate fondue were all delicious.
Been here 3 times & each time it has been wonderful. The staff are polite & friendly. The food is yummy..
Been looking forward to eating at the cow shed for ages, the anticipation of eating there was high as I thought it was a meat lovers place to go. Well a place called the cow shed it should go without saying the steaks were going to be top draw, unfortunately this was not the case.
I ordered the rib eye, med rare and my other half ordered the skewers. The chicken on the skewer was good but the beef was tough and chewy.
All I can say about my steak was it was very poor, first sight it was very small and looked lonely on the plate with a few on the vine tomatoes, then the taste ... this was not the best but was not bad, it was very tough and chewy not what I expected from a very nice restaurant. It is what I would have expected from a high street cafe to be honest.
Have had better tasting and tender steaks in a Weatherspoons.
Hate being negative about the cow shed as I was expecting far more from this place, very disappointed, dissatisfied and generally gutted with this experience.
Waitresses was so lovely. Suitable for all ages. Food delicious and generous portions. Well worth the travel. Lovely calm atmosphere with candles on tables. Brilliant overall
Very impressed with the food service and over all had a lovely evening!
Overall the food was really good, The sharing platter was quite small for the price , The burgers and ribs our party had again was really good, But still a little over priced when you compare to other places of the same type of food.
Love going to The Cow Shed on special occasions as food is always good,staff are friendly and the service is great.
Food was great, really enjoyed it, service was great but a little slow when clearing between courses would highly recommend
Was the first time at this restaurant and really enjoyed the food and the ambiance will definitely return
Beautiful food , great presentation. Great ambience, lovely staff . Not sure if I would want to pay £15-20 a burger all the time bit for special occasions was great.
The food at Birchington Cow Shed is to die for. Quality meat cooked to perfection. The batter on onion rings mouth wateringly good and feather light - amazing. Pepper sauce excellent. Nothing bad to say always an enjoyable evening.
Very welcoming ambience.friendly helpful staff,lovely food,really enjoyed the Baked Brie & Classic burgers.
Thanks for remembering the birthday candle as requested for my partners birthday meal.

Staff excellent. Food delicious and I love the rustic interior.
Steaks cooked to perfection but the burgers are the best. Almost couldn’t clean my plate!
We booked for Xmas eve. It wasn’t busy and the service was excellent. The waitress made a Non alcoholic cocktail for one of our party. We all enjoyed our food. I had a delicious lamb rump. The others enjoyed steaks. This is our go to restaurant for special meals. They never dissapoint
WOW! What a wonderful find, this was our first visit and certainly will not be our last!
The restaurant is lovely, staff were all friendly, polite and very attentive, great service!
The food was delicious, fresh, tasty and vast! the portion sizes are definitely more than enough
Amazing food, grate atmosphere and brilliant value for money
The food was fantastic, cooked to perfection and sizeable portions. Service was also very good, staff were very friendly.
Really lovely food, but was way too hot. I turned the radiator off (with permission) but it was very very warm which put me off my dinner a bit.
Really lovely lunch and staff were very friendly! Can't wait to go again
Lovely food, wish we could have fit pudding in but was too full from the gorgeous sharing starter and huge steak. No sweet potato fries though :(
Drinks bit pricey, food ok. Steak cooked beautifully but the rest pretty average.
Good service, waitress very friendly & efficient.
Rump & ribeye steaks were a little chewy but all other food was good especially the rib starter
superb food very friendly and warm very catering would highly recommend 8 off us at one table and not one of us had a single complaint waiters very friendly would highly recommend for couples or a larger party can’t praise the staff enough
First visit on Wednesday, and was not disappointed. Food was cooked to perfection, even though the portions were huge, so couldnt eat all mine 😊 cocktails were gorgeous
The 2 girls working front of house were welcoming, friendly and attentive, and made the whole evening a lovely experience. Would highly recommend, and will definitely be going back 10/10
Fantastic restaurant, ambience was lovely ( created the perfect setting for my date). First time visiting and will certainly visit again. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, always came over with a smile on their face. Food wise, I opted for the mac n cheese burger and this was really tasty, could not fault it. Really cannot recommend this place highly enough!
Great time, great food good service. All round 👍🏽
Had a lovely meal with family. Service was great and the food was yummy. Would definitely come back. Lots of choice on the menu. All food looked great.
