Had a good fillet steak at the Bountiful cow and a nice pint to go with it. Steak was cooked more than ordered but still very nice.

Visited for a drink this rather small bar in a more or less alley which is mostly deserted. Has weird wall hangings...good for small groups but has stools on counter for stool lovers. Does not look like decent but ok. Yet to try their food

Well, Eagle Street comes to an end not far beyond The Bountiful Cow, but Dane Street, which we also face, runs to Red Lion Square-- not exactly an alley. We love our quieter location only a block away from High Holborn. The fixed revolving stools are there for people who want to eat at the bar. That's because we're a... More

We popped in here for dinner as I was up in London for an event which was cancelled at the last minute, and this place is just round the corner from my partner's office - she has visited several times with friends and recommended it. From start to finish I was very impressed. It is more of a pub than... More

Had a meal here with friends, expecting a very different steak house experience but it wasn't all that different. I had some nice prawns for a starter and then a fillet steak, but oddly I thought serve with a slice of toasted bread and lots of mushrooms, no chips etc. I guess I could have ordered these on the side...

We had a great meal, enjoying the the uniqueness of a quiet pub/restaurant in London on a Saturday night! The steaks were simply delicious, the goat cheese starter very tasty and the Adnams beers delicious, especially the Mosaic.

Had a family standard burger and chips. Burger was very good with nice bacon and cheese; chips were hot, fat and crunchy.

Server while cheerful said they had no cask ale. This is supposed to be a good pub. Menu prices high but if you are cool enough to book online they give you a one £discount and have the chutzpah to call this still overpriced meal "almost free". What is wrong with walking of the street to go to a pub... More

I was looking for a good non-chain burger near Holborn and found this hidden gem. Had a really nice burger served at the bar. Really appreciated the casual vibe at this place, the film-poster themed decor and the friendliness of the staff. The "mini" bounty burger was more than enough for me.
