A collection of the finest and freshest seafood in the City of London has been served at Gow’s Restaurant for over 125 years. The interior boasts a stylish oyster bar and large windows to watch the world go by.

Premium seafood from around Britain features on the Gow’s Restaurant menu. There are local favourites like London-cured oak-smoked Scottish salmon, as well as decadent treats such as foie gras butter with thyme chutney. Whole Scottish lobster can be ordered cold poached or hot grilled, and seafood platters are perfect for sharing. Private dining is also catered for.

Non-seafood options at Gow’s Restaurant Liverpool Street include Aberdeen Angus steak, and vegetarian specialities like asparagus, mango and Roquefort risotto. The extensive drinks menu includes several vintage champagnes.

  • ((((( 22 December 2016 by Paul Sullivan from City of London

    This is being completed by Paul Sullivan's PA:
    Paul greatly enjoyed the atmosphere in Gow's and enjoyed a lovely relaxed meal in a friendly ambience. He commented that the food was of an excellent standard and greatly enjoyed the range of dishes on offer, notably the Crab Crumble (?), and that the service was first rate.

  • ((((( 15 December 2016 by Michael Freeman from Hertford

    Food was excellent as usual and acceptably priced. Service was a little slower than we have been used to in previous years and this created some time pressures for us (possibly fewer staff on duty than previously?). But the overall experience was as good as ever and we will come back every year for our Christmas special.

  • (((** 20 January 2016 by Sean Bunch from Coggeshall

    Food was very good. Unfortunately, the heating either did not work or was too sparse. Hence it was very cold in the seating area which meant we had cold red wine which is not ideal. Service was very good.

    Superb meal, the fish is excellent. Good wines and the services is very good in respect of timeliness and friendliness - understated.
