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.

Always consistent ??
((((( 23 April 2017 by Mark from London
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.

very good food and very attentive staff

The Bountiful Cow is tucked away in a little alley very close to Holborn, but well worth seeking out. It's not too noisy and the cow themed décor is fun to look at, but the main reason we visited is the food. Great steaks at good prices. The service was very friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. We've been before, and I'm sure we'll be back again!

Steak sandwich is very large and well worth the money. Delicious

Been here many times over the last few years and am never disappointed. The cuts of meat are consistently excellent (and huge) and always cooked to perfection. The surf n turf for 2 is a particular highlight, and the service is always great. The perfect place for an epic meating.

Love this place, unpretentious but great service and food. Great range of beers too!
((((( 25 March 2017 by Tim from London
Third visit for me, first time for my friends. All of us were delighted by the friendly service and great food. The steaks are excellent quality and perfectly cooked, good sides and tasty sauces. The Bounty burger is a beast! The beers available are good and the small wine menu well-chosen. We had 3 bottle of the Malbec as we enjoyed it so much. Everyone was amazed at the great value and relaxed atmosphere, so close to Covent Garden and soho. We will be back.

As we were a group of 12 it did take considerably long for our food to be served which resulted in us having to eat quickly in order to get back to work on time
