Square Meal Review of The Cow ?

The noisy, crowded atmosphere of the ground-floor pub may not be to everyone’s taste, but compensations include an open fire, outside terrace and long polished bar serving “the best Guinness in the UK” as well as real ale. Upstairs, the quiet dining room has high ceilings and interesting modern art. Both areas now serve the same menu, starting with the likes of home-smoked salmon with beetroot, potato and horseradish, or a complex salad of watercress, blue cheese, pea shoots, blueberries and pistachio dressed with raspberry vinegar and honey. To follow, the daily specials are worth considering: old-favourite chicken Kiev, perhaps, or grilled tiger prawns with hot pepper sauce. Alternatively, order a fresh crab, a pint of prawns, oysters or a robust combination of whelks and winkles. The wine list of mostly French and Italian bottles passes muster, too. “Excellent Sunday beef, good oysters, nice atmosphere” sums up The Cow succinctly.
