user reviews of the Cow, Newham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Not so much a review. Read about this "real ale pub" in Westfield and have wants to visit. Now attempted to get in this bar on no less than six separate occasions. Different party sizes and mixes. As a couple, two couples, three couples and a men only group of 10. Can hardly get near the place and the deafening hubbub when inside has caused most of my party to reject it as a venue. Range of beers looked mouth watering.
Is there a real pub in Stratford rather than a girder and glass wine bar dressed up? Please let me know.

Requested BITE to add this back Jun'13. As they have now done so here goes, although the review is now out of date.

The Cow is a Geromimo inn and I believe they tailor their prices by area. As the Cow is set on the edge of the Westfield Olympic park, this is priced as a tourist trap. The surroundings are OK, the service is OK and the drinks are OK, but the prices are very steep. They had Aspalls draught at £4+ a pint, indeed a round of three drinks came to just over £12.

As food, I ordered the plaice goujons and chips for lunch (£12), expecting a large portion. I got an average bowl of chips, and 3 goujons (so that was £4 a goujon! not including the chips), my two friends laughed, but their cod & chips set them back £14 each and they were similarly disappointed.

At that time it served the most expensive pint for a UK pub that I'd been to, although the prize is now currently held by the Cuckfield in Wanstead.
