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.

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. Overall: a venue that myself and my husband have been waiting for for approx 10 years…thank goodness we now have it. Fabulous place, staff and food.
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
Fantastic local pub!! good food and fine wines, served by the friendliest of staff, always ready to make a visit to the Brown Cow pleasurable “Try the Battered Fish and Chips on a Friday Night”
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 and beautifully cooked beef. Heaven. The ham egg and chips had me dreaming of ham for the following week… Dangerously addictive!
A restaurant that also seamlessly manages to be a pub at the same time with neither drinker nor diner feeling put out or awkward in the presence of the other.

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 advise you to look around before sticking with this place. So much choice in SW6.
