Squaremeal Review of The Brown Cow ?

Set up by the guys from the excellent Sands End nearby, this venue has taken on its sibling’s distinctive ‘country pub in the city’ vibe – and is certainly wowing the crowds. Hover by the bar and sup a pint or two of real ale or join the buzzy throng seated at bare refectory tables. Either way, the cooking takes its cue from its neighbour, with a tempting roll call of “consistently good food” running from charred mackerel with beetroot, coleslaw and vodka crème fraîche to Barbary duck breast with caramelised figs and blackberry jus, braised lamb shank with cavolo nero, and even Cumberland sausages with creamed potato. Desserts might feature warm banana and hazelnut cake, while the carefully managed wine list offers plenty in the £20-30 bracket. Nibbles such as mac ‘n’ cheese balls are available all day, and we’ve heard that Sunday roasts are a good call.

Monday night and recovering from the weekend. The Brown Cow was the obvious choice with great bitter, superb fish and chips and some of the friendliest bar staff and waitresses I have met. My week has now started perfectly and I'm now getting myself ready for their full English breakfast – now that's how you start the weekend

I love this place. Whether it's popping in for a quick drink with a friend after work or a day long lunch followed by early evening sausage rolls to soak up the wine! The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and personable – always happy to give recommendations also which I really appreciate. Not everyone is going love everything on a menu so some outside input always helps! Their Sunday Roast beef is genuinely the best pub roast I have ever had. Literally. Massive yorkshire, extra gravy on demand...

Thank goodness I have a new "local" that also doubles up as a fantastic restaurant

Where to start? Number one: it actually IS my local. Wasn't expecting it to have such a welcoming local pub attitude, but it did and does. Number two: The staff are genuinely friendly – no sign of the fake attitude one finds in other London ‘local’ venues. I've been to the Brown Cow several times on my own and am always made to feel so welcome. I love this. Number three: The food is superb. Can't really say more than that, other than get yourselves there, but I do advise that you book in the evenings....

Staff, food, service - shocking

Have been frequenting this establishment over time, despite it consistently letting us down on all fronts. Not one to leave reviews but feel if we don't then it will never change. Cramped, with snotty staff who seem to think that it is an honour if they so much as look at you. Food last time was almost cold, with dirty plates. Was told the kitchen porter was new as a reason. This is not in Mayfair, its in Fulham. And locals are king. They should be treated with respect at all times. Would strongly...

I’m a local of Fulham and do my utmost to support its cause (but not its football clubs). From picking my fruit and veg at North End Road market to drinking my coffee in BonBon Delicatessen. I fully support the pubs and bars, and as such give generously to the cause. Local taxi drivers are great admirers of mine, often picking me up from tube stations or X destination and dropping me at my front door. Restaurants are also well supported, for it is perhaps my only habit to eat out. Born out of laziness...
