For our first foray into relatively fine dining in Bath we chose The Cowshed located at the city end of the Paragon. The occasion being a visit by Steve and Heather and also Jessica who popped over on the train from Bristol where she is studying Philosophy.
The deceptively small street frontage opens out into a large dining area overlooking the city at the rear with even more seating downstairs.
The style of the interior is modern rustic charm with chunky oak tables and very attractive Robert Welch cutlery. The focus is on local produce especially the meat sourced from local farms. The service was friendly, attentive, unobtrusive and non-intimidating. As this was Sunday three of us plumped for the roast meals either beef or lamb served with swede and carrot mash, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, savoy cabbage and rich gravy. Others sampled the whole, Sea Bass or had a selection of starters instead of a main.
Groaning though our stomachs were we all forced down desserts such as Creme Brulé, Lemon Meringue or Chocolate cake.
All concerned were very happy with the choice of restaurant and enjoyed the meal and overall ambience. Conversation certainly flowed well and Jessica was very amusing. Would we go there again – yes probably but there are so many other restaurants to sample in Bath that I am not sure we will ever get back there again.
