Visited this pub several times for drinks after skiing and also had food a couple of times . Burgers good and price is reasonable for Zermatt. Best hot chocolates with rum served there than anywhere else we visited. Staff all friendly and helpful

We went to the Brown Cow Pub because nothing else was open for a late lunch. The place was packed and it was difficult to get a table. Once we sat down, the service was SLOOOW. The food was just average and, for the portions they serve, expensive. I don't think we will be going back

Always busy, but worth it if you can join up with a group or wait for seat at the bar. Ahhh-mazing burger and fries, great atmosphere. Always great after a day on the mountain!

Went here a couple of times during our trip to have lunch - nice place inside, very friendly staff, they'll bring menus/food/drink to you, and it's a relatively inexpensive place to get (very good) burgers, goulash and other options. nice experience, we'd go back. It was always busy, and in the evening was often packed with people having drinks.

This pub with the food is just incredible. The chef gets it right whether it's the scotch egg ( which is insane) or the main course which is amazing. We love it here !!

Excellent place to stop for a quick, reasonable and easy lunch in Zermatt. We stopped in for a late afternoon lunch after skiing and this place was a great find. The beer was cold, the burgers were great and the atmosphere was fun! We had a nice friendly waitress and met some nice local Swiss folks at the bar.

This little bar always seemed to be close to full (if not overflowing), no matter the time of day. Probably because of the convivial atmosphere and a good bar menu, including a range of hotdogs and burgers. Great place to enjoy a drink and an informal but substantial meal, you may have to take a seat at the bar until... More
