One of the best pizzas I have ever had. The Cow Shed was recommended​ by local. I had the Vegetable Supreme and my husband had the Meat Feast. The crust was delicious, and I loved the addition of toasted seeds on mine. The desserts looked amazing.

We are here as part of a deal with the attached backpackers....Great pizza. Even better desert. Coffee the next morning was A+ and the breakfast was generous.

The restaurant is nice and cozy, with a beautiful garden outside, where you can spend nice summer evenings dining. And the pizzas are the best I ever had. They don't serve alcohol but you are welcome to bring your own. Good service and friendly staff.

We popped in for dinner after seeing the shed from the street. We ate outside in the beautiful gardens and enjoyed delicious pizzas. Great spot and friendly staff. Good prices as well!

My husband and I were traveling with friends and spent the night on Murchison. We are not pizza eaters but WOW. This was special pizza. Sooo delicious. Plus a great salad. We also loved talking with the owner who was interesting and friendly. He is originally from Liverpool. He and his wife had the courage to relocate to NZ. Bravo.... More
