The Flaming Cow, Eton
Fun and funky, Flaming Cow is a cool urban diner in traditional Eton, serving banging burgers, craft beers and thick oozy milkshakes.
It’s not often you find a restaurant that opens its first place in the Royal borough, then expands into London. But then Flaming Cow is not your typical eatery for these parts. A funky urban diner is rarer than a sighting of the Queen on Megham Markle’s hen do.
Flaming Cow Eton opened in 2014, in the shadow of Windsor Castle, on the opposite side of the Eton Footbridge, with its sister diner in Ealing West London joining the fold in 2016. The Eton diner is in the perfect spot, lots of Windsor visitors looking for a glimpse of the River Thames will simply follow the distinctive tailcoats of Eton College pupils – and, BAM!, look left and it’s a case of following the fine aroma to the Flaming Cow. The outside – a rather bland modern brick building – doesn’t do the interior justice. Head inside and all your Shoreditch style meat feast wishes will come true.
The King Cow graffiti, a big ol’ bull hanging off the Empire State Building, is one of the first things you notice, and lots of industrial details – cage lighting, metal chairs and leather benches, open stainless steel kitchen. It’s casual, relaxed and fun. Think a PG rated Meat Liquor and you’ll get the idea. The staff are excellent and will help you navigate the huge amount of choice. There are 16 burgers on the menu, salads, rubs, wings, and that’s before you consider creating your own.
It’s the perfect spot for a quick bite with your mates, teens will give you cool credits and littlies will be in clover – quality fast food that’s utterly delicious.
