Cow & Pig
39 East Street, Bromley
Cow and Pig is a new addition to the Bromley dining scene. Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails in a ranch-style setting, they work with local suppliers to provide a twist on British classics.
We were welcomed by a very friendly and warm assistant manager, and taken great care of all evening by a waitress who helped talk us through the menu and informed us of all of the great local suppliers that Cow & Pig have built a relationship with.
Don’t be fooled by the name – although clearly a meat eater’s heaven, Cow & Pig also have a great selection of fish and vegetarian dishes to choose from. To start, I had the English Charcuterie board made up of a selection of delicious cured meats from Cannon & Cannon – a local supplier of artisan meats from England, Wales and Scotland. The meats had a good spicy kick that was offset nicely against sharp pickles and sweet delicious homemade chutney from the owners Mother-in-law! For main, I chose the crowd pleasing ‘Lobster Shepherds pie’ – a creamy, utterly indulgent dish that contained parsnip, carrots, onions, and was packed full of lobster supplied by B&J Fishmongers just up the road. For dessert, we shared the ‘Lemon drizzle Eaton mess’ – creamy, sharp and not to be eaten alone.
There is a well stocked bar with an impressive wine list and cocktail menu. To start, I had the rhubarb and custard cocktail which packed a punch with gin, advocaat liqueur, rhubarb syrup and a fine dusting of nutmeg. To accompany the meal, we selected a bottle of English, Chapel Down Wickham Estate red – a spicy, rich red number that went well with my starter and the ‘C&P plate of meat’ that my partner ordered.
A great local restaurant serving good quality locally sourced food.
