Beside the Olympic Stadium in London, The Cow Westfield is a superb example of the traditional British pub. Classic, hearty dishes are served alongside international twists, and a wide-ranging drinks menu.<br/><br/>Classic pub décor is combined with more contemporary styles, and live DJs on a Saturday evening add to the lively ambience.

Not bad for a pub situated in the middle of the Westfield shopping madness. It has three levels with a bar on the ground floor, comfy seats (and a fire!!) on the first floor, and more seats and a restaurant at the top, with nice views over Stratford (well...as nice as the view can be in Stratford; we could see Canary Wharf.)
The staff seemed friendly, if a little dappy. We ordered two...more
Expansive venue with abundant seating throughout. This review is in regards to the dining experience.
Food isn't great I'm afraid to report. The cow pie was bland and unexciting, paired with a clump of unwieldly steamed vegetables. The peas and mash were served in a glass jar for some reason. The portion size doesn't warrant its listing under the "Bigger Plate" section of the menu. All...more
