It was our first night in London, and the Cow Pub came recommended by our Air BnB host. It was a quick walk from the apartment. I had a hand-pulled cask ale and the Cow Fish Stew. It was spectacular. Fair warning, though, the place...More

Great pub. The best Guinness in London I think, and excellent reasonably priced pub food. Fish stew, crab linguine and fresh oysters being my favorites. Pies are also worth trying.

The Cow is a very traditional pub with a cosy little restaurant upstairs. The food is traditional and the surroundings and atmosphere are fun and relaxed. This would be an excellent place for a date or dinner with friends. The service was very friendly and...More

We went today and I was expecting great things. Food was expensive. Service was friendly but not very good. They couldn’t change my meal to include new potatoes instead of mash! They arbitrarily added 15 % service charge. I said I wasn’t happy with the...More
