Restaurant description

True to its name, The Bountiful Cow in Holborn is devoted to beef, with a menu headed by a fine range of steaks straight from Smithfield Market. A relaxed pub decorated with vintage prints, the lower floor of The Bountiful Cow hosts an open kitchen under the stewardship of eccentric head chef Roxy Beaujolais.

Whether it’s sirloin, T-bone or rib-eye, you can enjoy your steak with béarnaise sauce or with melted goat’s cheese, ‘a la Capricorn’. The coarse ground beef of the 14oz bounty burger comes with all sorts of toppings, or you could share the Bountiful Cow steakboard, with prawns, onion rings and tankards of chips.

Away from the beef, there are chicken club sandwiches, chargrilled sea bream and homemade sausage and mash, with lemony Greek salad and artichoke linguine among vegetarian choices. Belgian apple tart and crème brûlée give dessert time a continental touch.

Serving a range of flavourful world wines, The Bountiful Cow is a characterful London destination to enjoy the finest beef in town. A 3-minute walk from Holborn Tube Station, The Bountiful Cow restaurant is on Eagle Street, just off Red Lion Square.

    This restaurante has fast become my favourite in which both to enjoy a long lunch, and to celebrate love life and everything. The food, welcome and service here are of such high quality, excellence encapsulated, that I will be rushing back yet again as soon as the second lockdown period ends. The beef is of the highest quality, and prepared with skill care and attention to bring out everything that is good. My plate of steak tartare had both my husband and I singing it´s praises, the luxuriant mix of [raw] steak, [raw] egg, anchovy, onion and all brought me out in shivers of delight. Even thinking about it now makes me grin from ear to ear. Thank you to everyone who played a part in this creation, it was fabulous, I´ve eaten some great versions of steak tartars in Marseilles, but this blew them away. The service and generosity of Sveta, an ace chef and more than charming waitress, and her husband behind the bar is something we´ll never forget. I wish them all the success in the world, they deserve it in spades.

    Definitely one of the best burgers I had in London. Beef is top quality, grilled to perfection. The bun, although soft and fresh, has some room for improvement i.e. more elasticity to hold the burger together. My partner went for the large one and he did not regret it. We'll come back for more!

    Had a lovely meal at the Bountiful Cow. The food was fresh and very tasty. The sharing platter was amazing, so much food and such a great price. Glad they are open again. Will definitely be going back again soon

    The service and the food were both fantastic! Such a friendly feel as soon as you walk in, the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. The steak was the best I’ve had in a long time! Will be back soon :)

    Staff were helpful, food was fantastic. We had someone in our party who had some food allergies and they were extremely helpful and even offered to cook things off menu if they couldn't find something that suited them. Highly recommend best steak in London by far.
