51 Eagle Street, Holborn, LONDON, WC1R 4AP
Pub cookbook author Roxy Beaujolais runs this 'public house devoted to beef', her second pub venture following the delightful Seven Stars in WC2. Two floors are crowded with framed pictures of cows, bullfights, cowgirls, diagrams of meat cuts and posters of cow-themed films; jazzy but discreet music adds to an atmosphere halfway between funky bistro and stylish saloon. The well kept ales are from Adnams or guest breweries, and the short but estimable wine list includes several gutsy reds. The value-priced menu features Bountyburgers and perfectly grilled and tender aged steaks; the meat is sourced from a trusted Smithfield Market supplier. Starters of garlic fried prawns or octopus salad, and desserts like Belgian apple tart with vanilla ice cream might open and close the proceedings, with an oak steak board platter for two in between. Booking for all meals is advisable.
