We were almost the only people in the restaurant on a saturday night 6pm, nice for us, but probably not good for business? The burgers were huge and really good, good selection of drafts and almost cheap. What's not to like?

Found this place by accident and stopped for lunch. Great food and great selection of beers. Take care when ordering the burger as it is very large, there is a choice of a baby burger for those with a smaller appetite. Would certainly stop here again.

I love this place. I come here with friends 1-2 times a week at least. We often go for the welsh rarebit which is deliciously comforting food, but the burgers, steak sandwiches and prawns are also amazing. Service is always the best and it the atmosphere and decor is funky and great if you're after for something a little off... More

Tucked down a side street near Holborn tube, The Bountiful Cow serves great steaks at reasonable prices and is also one of the hidden gems of London. We always go for the Surf n' Turf when coming for dinner which is excellent and comes with a carafe of wine. Their lunch menu is also good and very well priced. Also... More

Great atmosphere in the cellar and simple, tasty food. I went for medium rib eye. Other steaks are available! Great house red too. Good for a dinner for two or colleagues enjoying a post work natter.

Super friendly staff and nice pub like interior. Lots of after work people going for a drink. Food came in no time and was super tasty. It had been indeed the best club sandwich I ever had. You need to like garlic to love this place. Prices accetable: sandwich + pint of cider = 15£
