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 food: our steaks and burgers were cooked to perfection! The portions are more than satisfying and very reasonably priced. The service was excellent!

    Excellent food and service as usual

  • ((((* 14 November 2017 by Bob Day from London

    Very good and reasonable priced with friendly, attentive service. It was quiet so whether you will get the same level of service and quality I couldn't comment. Quirky décor with cow theme and unusual background music helped make it different. Disappointed that our gluten free group member didn't get a gluten free menu but we worked round this. Basement dining space no view, could have been anywhere. We'll be back.

  • ((((( 28 May 2017 by Robin Defoe from Epping Essex

    I took some friends to the Bountiful Cow for the first time, having been there many times myself. They both thought that the Baby Bounty Burger was the best they had ever tasted.

    Always consistent ??

    Standards never slip at this popular not-so-much-a-secret-any-more steak pub with its loyal fanclub. Ribeye this time. Garlic prawns were particularly on song this lunchtime, tho always good. Drinks quality **** but choice drops it to *** as the choice is adequate, but could benefit from a couple more wines by the glass. Still some of the wittiest restaurant decor anywhere. Quietly efficient staff have been here a long time and are an asset too.
