Had a great lunch. Very relaxed, wasn't rushed at all. New manager very attentive and very patient with one of our guests who had some dietary issues. Nothing too much trouble. Highly recommend a visit. Good value for money, great food and great atmosphere!!

I enjoy the Brown Cow and I go there often. It is very frustrating when a restaurant clearly does not train their waiters. Our waiter had clearly never served wine before and was not informed on the simplest requests. Up your game Brown Cow

I love the Brown Cow so thought I'd take my family there for lunch on a Saturday to celebrate some birthdays. The service was super slow, my food was small plus had bones in (which to some part can be accepted but it completely put me off my food) and i had only ordered pork belly! Terrible acoustics, couldn't hear anyone and the table was set up the wrong way so anyone with long legs was uncomfortable. We ended up having to move it. Overal, really unhappy with the experience and super annoyed that I took my family (who hadn't been out in Fulham before) to this restaurant instead of another.

Nice buzzing atmosphere and very chirpy friendly staff, lots of babies and dogs about for Sunday lunch, which added to the chilled out vibe.

Unfortunately food wasn't fantastic. Out of our table of three, one was very happy with her main course and one with her dessert, but 2 out of 3 meals were disappointing, overcooked prawns, flabby pork and an Eton mess served in a tall narrow glass with a spoon that was too big to fit in the glass properly. Also for a dish that is supposed to be served cold it, was room temperature.

I'd got back for drinks and nibbles as the atmosphere is lovely, but will probably skip the food in the future.

We sat in the middle of the pub but the door opening and closing all the time made it so cold. The pub needs a curtain or something around the door to prevent the cold air coming in. Service was mediocre. The food was good but cold. We had to badger waiters to take our order and weren’t looked after we’ll. quite disappointing all round really.

We were a little disappointed that the menu on Saturday night was very limited and not the same as the website. Having said that the chicken burger was very good.

A very enjoyable New Year's Day lunch. High quality meat, great flavours and a good range on the menu. The only criticisms we could make were that we were waiting too long after being sat down to be offered a drink and the menus, and the chips could have done with longer in the pan. Otherwise very good and would go again, for sure.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and a very nice ambience with a good buzz. The pork belly was not crisp as promised and had to be redone and the food overall seemed to have been hanging around in oil for a while - possibly because we had Sunday lunch at 4.30pm. The beef and yorkshire puddings were very nice. Vegetables again seemed overdone in oil - a bit soggy

We took my Aunt out for lunch.
My husband, Aunt and I chose the two course lunch menu which was good value and very nice food.
I had smoked salmon and scrambled egg, followed by sea bream.
We were looked after well and spent about four hours over our meal.

The Brown Cow was really nice! A perfect spot for a Sunday roast - the staff were friendly and food was delicious - could have done with a little more gravy. Just under £20 which isn't cheap but it was worth it.

The food was not good. And so was overpriced. The burger I had was dry and poorly seasoned. The fries were undercooked. My partner's beef carpaccio looked as it had been cured, turning up at the edges. Obviously not freshly prepared.
His steak was fatty, tough and overcooked. Won't be eating there again.

Recommended by one of your regulars to have the set lunch menu which was not available on Tuesday October 19, so we found eating a la carte more expensive than we had bargained for. My daughter was disappointed for us and will mention it when she nexts sees you. John Phillips.

Way too loud & hipster for us. I was there for lunch on MON & had the parfait, which was wonderful. That's the reason I took my wife back FRI night for supper. The rest of our food was OK but the noise ruined everything.

Once more the Brown Cow did not disappoint, the food and atmosphere were second to none. Still remains one of my favourite places for a spot of lunch with friends. My only comment I would say, is PLEASE can we go back to regular mint sauce, for some reason the chef has taken the choice to use mint jelly, which to be honest was a real let down, just a pot of clear gel with a few specks of mint, absolutely no taste at all, and rather pointless.

Nice restaurant and good service but the brunch plates were so small we were tempted to order the same again! Tasty though but very small and definitely not worth the price.
