Great Ribeye

Found this Restaurant by chance. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good atmosphere and tastefully designed and furnished. This restaurant specialises in beef dishes. We both ordered Ribeye steaks which were cooked to perfection and tasted fantastic. I had the Eaton Mess for desert which... read more

Great steak , good price. Had rib eye which was about £23. Agree comments on chips, they are not great but you are here for the steak :-)

The Food Bloggers are big on sustainability and recognise that, all other things being equal, a vegetarian diet leaves a much gentler footprint on the planet than a carnivorous one. We respect vegetarians greatly. . . but not enough to decline a good steak when it's on offer. Happily enough, a good steak is exactly what the Bountiful Cow has... More

I love this place, the food is always of high quality, must have been around 7 times now! only downside is the service! Impossible to get another drink after the 1st and lets not get started on trying to get hold of the bill! Most importantly though, is the food, which is fantastic!

Found this restaurant by accident when looking for places that do steaks. Tucked down a side street near Holborn, this place is nothing to look at on the outside. Inside upstairs is a bar which seemed pleasant enough and a few tables. The main restaurant is down stairs. Glass front to the kitchen which is a nice touch. However, this... More

We had 2 rump steaks cooked to our taste and they proved to be the best steaks we have tasted in a long time. Very,very succulent and nice chips. Mushrooms and onion rings ordered separately -delicious. You could easily pay twice as much for a similar meal from famous steak houses- and there taste would fall well short!

The Bountiful Cow was a lovely little place, its a good size and set back from the main roads in the Holborn area. When we arrived, the greetings by the staff were very friendly and service continued to be excellent all night. We had the rump steak and chips - both were cooked exactly how we asked with the steak... More

If you would like a beautiful steak at a good price in a English Pub atmosphere then this is the place to eat.

The first problem we had was that the beer was on the turn; not bad enough to send back back but I swapped for my second pint onto the beer which my friend swapped away from (unknown to me). The food was alright, but the sauce was the same quality as my local Wetherspoons. Then the bill arrived, we were... More

Have been in the area many times, but saw the Bountiful and thought I'd give it a try with a good friend of mine. What a pleasant surprise. Good use of space in the bar, friendly atmosphere, and great food, tasty, well prepared and plentiful. It was quick and easy and good value. Definitely will visit again soon.
