We were due to eat elsewhere but a mix up with booking so ended up here. Initially disappointed as planning on a Thai curry but we had delicious burgers here and the house red was easy drinking! Most of clientele were in their 20s and...More

....I can't believe it! This was the worst fish and chips I've tasted in a long while. The batter resembled a clam shell and once inside it was clear that the fish was far from fresh. It was sent back and exchanged for a cheese...More

Never been in the day time but been in a few times for drinks in the evening. An upmarket environment, no loud or unruly patrons (as far as ive seen)... really nice place for a civilized drink with good friends. Great decor too.

Lived in 7dials for near 2 years and been in the cow at least once a month for most of that. Solid boozer, and good selection of beer and wine, though it ain't the cheapest beering spot. Food was great when we moved but since...More
