Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Please note, Sea Cow is now closed. Time Out Food & Drink editors, May 2016.

We remember this place as light and buzzing, but some recent interior decorating in pond-slime green seems to have had an equally depressing effect on the atmosphere. What the Sea Cow sells itself on – good quality fresh fish cooked simply – it does well.

Battered haddock got the thumbs-up from someone who lives in a fishing village, and a generous pile of grilled sardines were crispy and tasty. However, the chips were a bit dry and tasteless (as is so often the way since chippies abandoned lard) and the salads showed no effort whatsoever, being either a seemingly undressed pile of green leaves or some chunks of red onion and fuzzy tomato (billed as a ‘Moroccan salad’).

Top marks, though, for the surprisingly light, vanilla-infused bread and butter pudding. The Sea Cow’s saving grace is its family deals – kids eat free before 4pm at weekends and at other times receive large portions for a snip – an offer that’s hard to ignore.
