“Best steak in ages”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

First impressions were a little off putting - but what a fantastic meal. It is great to find a pub that serves a lovely steak how you want it cooked with no frills attached. If you enjoy a good steak and aren't looking for fancy restaurant then this is the place for you. Bookings required

“Best UK Burgers!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Very lucky people; we rented a 2 bedroom flat in Red Lion Square, and The Bountiful Cow, which we quickly nicknamed the The Happy Cow, was literally out our back door. The BC is well worth a Tube ride from anywhere,for a great burger and fries. The pub is small and comfortable upstairs, and also had a nice sized room downstairs, for more patrons, or meeting a group of friends.
Nice staff; the bartender was very patient, as I tried to figure out what to drink, since I am not a beer drinker. If you are a beer drinker, they have plenty of beverage options. The decor is a an eclectic mix of old movie posters and photos of livestock, which we see in Texas, so it was a fun conversation starter with the staff.
Burgers are amazing,large and juicy, easy to share. There are some good taste options, and other menu items though we didn't try anything else, we were hooked on their great cheeseburgers!
Great little spot for a drink or a bite, reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of food they serve.

“Racing Relief”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

After a great day's racing at the Epsom Derby 14 weary individuals made there way back into Central London for their Saturday 8pm booking at the Bountiful Cow and what a great place it was. Quiet for a Saturday evening but our table was ready, the drinks arrived quickly and the food was brilliant. Straightforward no nonsense steaks which were huge and the service was first class. Not rushed at all and everyone left around midnight stuffed, tired and very happy. Would have no problem recommeding this place at all to anyone who wants good, quality food and has a big appetite. Just wish they had one in Liverpool......
