The Cow is a good 15 or 20 minutes north by foot from Notting Hill Gate, so use a different station to get here. But do get here. This was one of the early gastropubs, and it has maintained consistent quality with a simple formula of pub menu downstairs and fancier stuff in the dining room on the first floor. Seafood is a speciality: a pint of Guinness and six oysters is one of the most popular orders. A good number of the people in here are going to be platinum-card-carrying members of the one per cent, but you won’t feel out of place if your credit limit barely makes it into four digits.
