Excellent food served by first class waiting staff in a very pleasant airy first floor dining room above a traditional (and very good) London pub. All dishes were good but worthy of a special mention is the Cow fish stew. I will go again.
Seafood and salad fresh and tasty. Very good value for money
One of my favorite places, never disappoints. Recommended!
very good pub food and impressed by barman Pedro who put the Timothy Taylor beer back on and it was excellent
I can’t fault The Cow, the service was impeccable, the food was INCREDIBLE! I will definitely be back again. We were the only people in the restaurant, but that was quite nice and it was a sunny day so most people were enjoying the weather.
If you have nothing else order a pint of prawns They are to die for!
I had a lovely time. We had a nice little table upstairs in front of the window. The food was nice and so the service. Definitely recommended.
It’s great so don’t go there as I might not be able to get a table next time :) the chicken Kiev is the best accompanied by a pint of quality Guinness. Enjoy.
Service was not good at the restaurant
I really love this place. It is perfect for dining with a small group of friends or just for inviting your girlfriend.
We had the visit of the chef at our table, and in general service is really perfect. Seafood was very good
No one in the place on a Monday night so little atmosphere and too much loud music and shouting from downstairs. Welcome very unfriendly
Excellent service by waitstaff that seem to be happy to work there. Very helpful in describing the dishes. As its predominately a seafood menu it isn't going to be cheap. The half/pint of prawns is great albeit it fiddly to eat. I had the Sunday roast which was perfectly cooked.
Just as expected
This is my favourite food pub in London.
Had a lovely dinner with my husband and as they were out of one type of oysters we ordered they gave us two extras of the ones they did have! Always a great place that gives you two extra oysters..! Thanks The Cow from the Cowells xxx
A fantastic night had by all, food and service was top notch, old fashioned pub that needs no gimmicks , loved it.
One of the best meals I have had in London for a long time. Very good service and very good value. Quite a loud room.
The Fish Stew was the outstanding entree among several excellent offerings. This small cozy dining room above a boisterous neighborhood pub was a lucky find.
The GM was a lovely man, he added to our special evening. Thank you. Loved our meals, ambience was great. Recommended by another US friend, well worth going to!
Group of very drunk/high men in restaurant that the staff could not control. Should have moved them to bar after they had finished eating. Instead the staff admitted they thought it was easier and non confrontational to leave them alone - not good for the other diners. Shame as food was excellent but impossible to have a conversation across the table
Old fashioned in a good way and with a local neighbourhood feel
Too many such pubs are disappearing ie di burgers so let’s support The Cow
fantastic food and the staff were superb, great buzz in the pub downstairs before and after
Nice, friendly atmosphere. Perfect pasta. Lovely choice of English cheese. Good wine list.
Wonderful!! The best Sunday roast We ever ate!! Excelente ambience and staff.
Great food. Great staff. Quirky decor. Loved it all.
Great venue and well cooked food. Saw a couple of the seafood 'spectaculars' being delivered to other tables and these really were impressive. Not cheap but great service.
Fabulous local gastro pub.. sublime oysters & wine list... Chicken Kiev also highly recommended
Love this place. Great food. Great staff and service. Perfect for casual dinner or a celebration. Fish lovers paradise. Fish strew is their trademark. Good steak too, and meat pie. Best chicken Kiev in London.
Knowing the reputation of “The Cow” there is very little I can add except to say it lived up to it!
My Cracked Crab first course was plentiful, well garnished and proficiently served.
Is there much that hasn’t been said about the Roast Beef here? Simply excellent and full of flavor.
If I have a grumble its that the cheeseboard is somewhat mean, just half a dozen biscuits and only one cheese from a choice of three was a disappointment.
On the whole though a delicious traditional British Sunday lunch.
Even the Yorkshire puddings were up to scratch, considering that they were made “down south!”
We enjoyed our evening and the Cow Fish Stew was truly delectable
Good food as always but the evening was partly spoiled by the cancelling of our restuarant reservation due to over booking on their part. We were offered and given a table in the bar area (which is fun) but no apology and no recognition that this arrangement wasn’t suitable on this particular evening.
A simple phone call prior to our arrival, explaining the over booking problem would have been appreciated.
Ate upstairs in the fine-dining room. Great food. The best muscles I’ve ever had - and cooked in cider not wine. Very friendly staff. Their own lager is fantastic.
Lovely as usual! I levevthe pub and in this occasion together with football and interesting match a must to go!
They know what they’re with fish: Really nice mussels & salmon, perfectly cooked & unfussy.
My favourite pub in London. Great food, lovely staff and house wine more than decent. Screening the World Cup downstairs.
Really good meal and especially great value for money!
Every dish was really good and with fresh produces. A real discovery
Only the Sole (fish of the day) was drowning in oil and it would have been way better with just a splash and not the whole pan it was cooked in emptied in the plate.
Other than that, everything was spot on and the fish stew is not to be missed
Should definitely use this venue more.
Not great. Surly service cramped dining room very loud and self consciously trendy.
Service particularly bad and not the first time. I usually spend a fair amount in here have the champagne and oysters but after three lacklustre visits in the past year since the refurb we won’t be going back. It’s a shame I used to like it but staff should be doing something that they like not working in hospitality. As a famous German once said “ just because we serve you does not mean we like you” if they want to make it great again get some great staff and put the wall back up so you don’t have to listen to the raucous bar downstairs.
Good food and a steepish price in a quaint pub (gastropub) setting.
