Hands-on, social, fun dining…

Shellfish Cow Restaurant & Bar isn’t part of a chain, it’s owned and run by two local experienced restaurateurs who simply love good food & entertaining.

The ever so slightly over the top quirky bar is jolly well stocked, serving classy Martini cocktails, ales, lagers, affordable decent wines & artisan gins. In fact, (funny that) the same winning formula as our original Wallingford restaurant and bar.

Lunch & dinner menus focus on the freshest British shellfish landed from around our shores from Cornwall to the Shetlands; all delivered overnight directly to our kitchens.

What are our lovely guests saying?

“My partner and I celebrated our anniversary here and had a fantastic time! The atmosphere was great and we were made to feel very welcome by the staff and manager”

“What a date! Decided to go here on a whim.The restaurant was nicely decorated and the staff were well trained, but above all the steak was amazing. Just what Henley needed, will be back for sure.”

“Great food, great wine but what made it special was the service. Nothing was too much trouble and our waiter Jason (manager) was amazing. He had such personality he really made us feel welcome and special.”
