Casual
The Bountiful Cow is one generous beast: a public house devoted to beef. Executive chef Roxy Beaujolais (of Seven Stars and TV fame) serves large steaks and larger burgers at pubby prices, plus cask-conditioned ales and good wines. The young, relaxed ambience features bright décor, cowboy film posters and moo-cow ads. Dine in banquettes, or on Lloyd Loom chairs, at oak tables—either at bar level, or downstairs, with the kitchen entertainingly visible through glass. The menus feature aged steaks and burgers (free toppings if you wish), and other dishes; even some vegetarian ones.

Steak was cooked to perfection. Staff were very friendly and even brought me out an apple tart with a candle in for my birthday at the end of the meal. Could not recommend it enough

Picked this as a pre-theater dinner venue. Restaurant was mostly empty (but it was only 5.30 on a Sat night). Service was impeccable and the food great. Wife had the serloin steak and I had the large burger (which was very large....). Nice cafe style seating in the upstairs bar area and a large basement restaurant. Definitely recommend and will be back at some stage.

We made a last minute booking for a late lunch before going to an exhibition. We went for the 3 course steak deal for £25 that included wine. Great value, amazing steak, good portions and really friendly staff. Cool decor would go again!

Service was good. Food was tasty but not mind blowing. I had the beef hash which was more like a stew so while good, it wasn’t what I was expecting. But I would return for a business meal again.

A spur of the moment booking - and a new place for us to eat. Pleasantly surprised as I'd not seen the place before and it has a friendly, jolly atmosphere on a saturday evening. We had pate and mozzarella starters which were really tasty and the ribeye which was very good indeed. Cooked to med rare as we like and very tasty! Will come back!

Hit the spot perfectly! Good steak (Great steak bites!!) and good beer. Off the beaten track a little, so fairly quiet, but can't complain at all about the food.

Good value for money, tasty comfort food. Big burger is huge and super yummy. Decent chips too. Servers were lovely but we waited 5mins to be seated despite booking as they seemed under staffed.

Food was mostly good - the staff allowed us to order off both the bar menu and the main menu, however one of my friends burgers wasn’t cooked properly. We didn’t send this back as she was full anyway but just a note. Portion sizes were huge,
I don’t think any of us finished our meal! It was nice and chilled and we weren’t rushed.

We were so happy to find this little gem last-minute on a Saturday, for our relatively large party of 9. I, personally, come from the Midwest in the United States, in our state there are more cows than people. That being said, I can confidently say that this was probably one of the best steak meals I have had in quite some time. The filet was done to perfection and the sides were excellent! We ordered the mashed potatoes and the sliced potatoes. I made sure to personally thank the chef and staff, they seemed very pleased to hear it! The service was excellent and the ambiance was just what we needed. I was extremely surprised to find it was not very busy on a Saturday evening around 7pm...there is no reason that it should be that way. I hope you'll visit, you won't be disappointed!

Flavour of steak was good but it was served cold. Chips were done to perfection. It was hard to get the servers attention so went ahead and ate the meal. Upon telling them about the steak they did offer a 15% discount however turns out this discount is offered to anyone as it is posted on their website so...

We are here last week and although very busy upstairs we were promptly seated downstairs and the service was excellent. The starter sharing platter of meats and cheeses was superb and our main steak meals were all good. I would recommend this for great service food and value.

Enjoyed the food here. It was nicely cooked and tasty. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Quite noisy but we went on a Friday a week or two leading up to Christmas so expected. Recommended for steak lovers.

The atmosphere was nice and the service friendly. A lovely little table downstairs was very nice. The starters were lovely - both the pate and the prawns - and the mains (all steak) were nice, however slightly overcooked. One needed sending back but they were great at cooking a new one. Sides are slightly overpriced but all in all was a nice meal.

The food was ok. Filet looked much better then the t-bone I had. Frozen fries were disappointing. Should have been made from fresh potatoes. Mushrooms were over cooked.

We booked the Bountiful Cow for a quick pre-theatre meal. The service was brilliant and attentive, the order was placed quickly and the food arrived in good time, as we mentioned we had a show to see.
It's a very friendly cosy little place, litte off the beaten track but easy enough to find. I ordered the fillet steak which was perfectly done and the other half had the burger which was very big and tasty.
I would definitely go back and really recommend.

The meal was ok but for what we paid we were a little dissapointed. We both had a steak and it came with frozen chips nothing else.
There were only 6 people in the whole place all night, including us.
All in all it was ok but nothing to write home about.

I booked this for a reasonably informal business meal but realised as I saw the location that it wouldn't have suited a more formal one. It's tucked away, which will appeal to many. Not too busy. My steak tartare looked a little like a large, raw beefburger (!) but did taste as it should so just a coincidence. Steak sandwich good. The staff were very helpful when I had to change the booking a couple of times within the space of an hour beforehand! Think I'd recommend for social/informal occasions.
