The Cow


The Cow is a Notting Hill's pub restaurant, which offers the achingly hip denizens of Westbourne Park the best of both worlds. Downstairs is a rough-&-ready Irish tavern with a deliberately shabby-chic vibe: shellfish is the order of the day here and the counter groans under the weight of winkles, whelks, clams & very good oysters. Upstairs is another world, all crisp white tablecloths, pale yellow walls & the odd publicity-shy celeb considering the understated menu. Once again, oysters are the star turn, but the likes of duck ragù, tricolore gnocchi with brie, or sea bass with mussels & wild garlic leaves add some international refinement to proceedings.

  • A word from the chef:

    Most famous as one of the best places in London to sip a pint of the black stuff over half a dozen oysters, we serve also seared scallops & cucumber with sorrel & watercress, roast crown of wigeon with bubble & squeak & Cumberland sauce, & almond tart with stewed greengages & Jersey cream.
