The Cow is a pub of near legendary status amongst the local media crowd. Charmingly old fashioned, its popularity makes it hard to find a seat. The food they serve is European and includes oysters and crab, and you can book in the small dining room upstairs. Private parties of up to 40 people can be catered for.

This is a serious fish restaurant in the guise of a local pub. I had a crab and fish stew. Both were expertly prepared, and the fish was obviously right off the boat. It is well worth the long and dangerous trip from my house (ok, it's a three minute walk).more
I came because a friend who used to work here in the past recomended the place, and i can say it was a great recomendation, food looked great, I wasn't looking for a complete meal, more something to have whit drink, so I ordered "the cow special" 6 oysters (big ones) and a pint of gunnessmore
I love this place. My most recent visit was on a cold Saturday night in January. Luckily for us, even at 8 PM the upstairs dining room wasn't very crowded. It started to fill up around 10 PM when we were leaving.
My other half and I sat at a communal table, but had it to ourselves until about the time the check arrived. I really enjoyed my Cow Pie, which was a heavenly dish of steak spiked...more
I dont know why the fish stew has received so many great reviews...I found the broth a bit bland and not savoury. on the flip side, they have the best damn rock oysters I've ever eaten. Super plump, succulent, large, meaty and very fresh. Same goes for the half pint of prawns...filled past the rim and the interior of the pint was jam packed with these fresh lil' guys. Prawns and oysters...more
Probably the best 'gastro pub' I've been to. Only it's not a gastro pub, it's a solid boozer, which happens to serve great homemade food upstairs. Loved every dish i was served, from the pint of Guinness, to the half pint of prawns and then the crab pasta. Service isn't quick but if that bothers you, you don't get it. Just enjoy the vibe, drink some beers and look forward to the next dish....more
