The Cow in west London has been awarded the
accolade of the AAs Best Seafood Pub in London award, sponsored by the
Sea Fish Industry Authority (Seafish), from pubs in the new AA Pub Guide
Fabulous fresh seafood draws the crowds to this
well refurbished pub owned by Tom Conran and situated in fashionable
Notting Hill Gate.
Expect a bustling yet relaxed atmosphere and an
impressive shellfish display. Accompany a decent pint of Guinness with six
Irish rock oysters, or choose whole Cornish crab, mussels, langoustines,
Dublin Bay prawn gratin, clams, or go for the mixed seafood
David Hancock, AA Pub Guide Editor says: The
Cow is often crowded, but its well worth elbowing your way through the
celebrities and media types to get your hands on some of the best
shellfish in a London pub. The separate upstairs restaurant specialises in
fish, and has a pretty impressive selection.
Howard Thomas, Trade Development Executive for
Seafish says As an island, we are very lucky because we have a wide array
of wonderful seafood available to us all year round. Seafish have
sponsored these awards for the third year running because we want to
reward and highlight those pubs and inns that work hard to serve up the
best dishes using our great seafood supply.
Tom Conran, the owner of The Cow, received a
certificate from Graham Nursaw, Seafish Trade Development
