Conran's The Cow



Conran's The Cow

The Conran owned Irish seafood pub with the great name.

Location: 89 Westbourne Park Road, London

Description: This pub under the Westway was once known as the Railway Tavern, and was reputedly renamed to annoy a former landlady with attitude.

An equally plausible explanation is that drovers and their livestock passed this way headed east to London's Smithfield Market. Whatever, 'eat heartily and give the house a good name' is the sound philosophy of the pub, which specialises in oysters, Guinness and Cuban cigars.

Seafood figures strongly, and a seafood platter for two includes native and rock oysters, whole crab, prawns, clams, whelks and winkles.

The Cow will endure - it's owned by Tom Conran, Sir Terence's son, who also looks after the eponymous Toms, as well as the wonderful Crazy Homies and Lucky Seven diner on the same strip.
