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.

    Great place to eat, very cosy. Good decor. I had the baby bounty burger, which was fabulous. I took 2 friends with me who also had the same and they said it was the best burger they had ever had!

    The most amazing little find in London where the steak was just fabulous. Cooked to perfection and as requested. We could not fault the meal one bit. Service was also prompt and friendly.

    I arranged an informal business dinner at The Bountiful Cow based on the reviews and it's location to the hotel we were staying at. I had overseas visitors so was really happy to take them to a "pub" and they weren't disappointed! It was really clean, cosy and the service very attentive without being overbearing. We all had the "Baby Burger" which was far from small! It was absolutely delicious, cooked perfectly. I would like to add the toilets were really clean, unusual for a pub, but another positive point to this place. The fact we were the last customers to leave is testament to how much we enjoyed The Bountiful Cow.
