    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

    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

    Great English Ale selection. Have a pint of prawns, rock oysters, and anything from the daily specials menu. Hands down my favorite pub in London.

    Not your traditional pub food as this place specialises in Seafood, but boy is it good! The cosy atmosphere is our favourite!

    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.

    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.

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

    Very lovely place. Oysters and crabs in the menu surprised me.Very unusual for the public house.

    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

    Oysters and crabs! Pies and the fish and chips. Ales and craft excellent mix!

    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!

    Pint of prawns and a Guinness - simplicity at its best. The best pub in London with 1st class seafood.

    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.

    Excellent gastropub - quality seafood. You can eat downstairs, but I like the restaurant upstairs. Go to the Westbourne across the road for a drink before.

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