Beef is the star at this restaurant, where the focus is on locally sourced ingredients. Try the lunch deal, or eat early and snag a bargain rump steak

When done right, steak is top of the list for any carnivore  – and Cowshed does it right. Meat is sourced from their own butchers, aged for 31 days (any steak worth it's salt should be aged for 28, supermarkets rarely surpass a fortnight), then cooked high and quick, and not for too long. At 6pm, you can trade a tenner for a lovely rump steak with thick cut chips and a cold beer. Just make sure you scarper before the hour is up.

If you’re not just after a straight up cut of cow, then the £12 three-course lunch is a fantastic deal. Start with the three pepper venison carpaccio, which is meltingly tender with a robust pepper kick; move on to the Bristolouse sausage and lentil casserole for rich, garlicky wholesomeness; and finish with a mixed fruit strudel with cream – both sharp and sweet.

If you are feeling economically robust, then hit the dinner menu – mains range from an average of £15 to £20, but are saporous and cooked brilliantly, and the portions ensure you get your bob's worth. Or, if you are a hardened carnivore, get the T-Rex T-Bone to share (an eye watering £60) and spend the rest of your evening in a post-cowtal, but extremely happy, slump.
