    Not your typical traditional pub as The Cow serves mainly seafood! For a different London pub experience, be sure to visit here!

    If you’re keen to use the World Cup as an excuse to eat your way around the world, The Cow’s head chef will be whipping up specials from the countries that are playing on the night.

    Apparently what Brits serve as pub food here is far superior than average bar food in the US. The only reason why theirs is called finger food is because you're eating crabs and oysters bare-handed!

    The laidback bar, serves food from 12-3pm and 6:30-10:30pm daily; try a bowl of whelks and winkles. In the formal dining room, the menu includes items like rock oysters, gravadlax, and smoked eel. Read more

    This is a neighbourhood hangout at its best. Combining Oysters and Guinness is an old trick, but Tom Conran’s pub never loses its charm. Read more

    Very relaxed scene with fresh seafood reportedly sourced from local fishmongers. Rotating guest ales featured weekly. They also sell Cuban cigars, though you can't smoke in the bar. Read more

    Similar to the Westbourne Pub across the road. Quite the hip crowd and great in summer. They have pretty amazing Oysters and generally good seafood for a pub.

    Directly opposite is the Westbourne Tavern. During the Nottinghill Carnival they lay down sand on the floor instead of chairs and tables! AWESOME!

    Pinnacle of gastropub-ery. Best guinness and oyster spot in London. Don't mess with the local flavor and if you're stopping by for a "scene" take your sorry arse across the street to The Westbourne.
