For a pub to cater to Posh Spice, it has to be more than your average local boozer.

Although she doesn’t typically frequent pubs, Victoria Beckham recently revealed a favourite spot that cuts the mustard – and it’s not just reserved for VIPs.

In an interview with Evening Standard, the designer shared: ‘I’m not much of a pub person, but when I do venture to one I do like the atmosphere at The Cow in Westbourne Park.’

The Bayswater bar isn’t far from where the Beckhams live in upmarket West London, and has a four-star rating on Tripadvisor along with an army of loyal patrons.

On its website, the owners of The Cow describe it as ‘a vibrant venue full of friendliness and cheer’ and an ‘essential destination for Guinness and oysters’.

Food is a big deal at this spot, with fresh seafood a particular speciality.

The £29 Cow Special features six Jersey Rock oysters and a pint of Guinness or a glass of house wine, while the Deluxe Seafood Platter (priced at a pretty deluxe £99) includes an 18-oyster selection, a whole cracked Portland crab, a pint of prawns and whelks.

Customers are big fans of the fish stew too, with Tripadvisor reviewer EJPope claiming it ‘would be a contender for a death row meal.’

Others praised the Sunday roasts, including VOP30 who said it was ‘excellent’ and 856jacquelineo who described it as ‘fabulous’ with ‘good size portions’.

Among the many five-star reviews, BronteBucket commented: ‘A friend had discovered this little gem on a recent trip to London… The wine was good, the atmosphere cozy and the puddings tasty, which all made for a wonderful couple of hours away from reality.’

Meanwhile, Nigel S said it was ‘atmospheric and dinky’, a sentiment echoed by Bart D who wrote: ‘Very nice old pub. Love the atmosphere and friendly barkeepers.’

One thing that did leave a little to be desired for some was the prices at The Cow. The cheapest small glass of wine here is £9, while a bottle will set you back at least £32 (or £51 if you opt for prosecco). According to The Travel, the average glass of plonk in London costs £6.97, so it’s certainly steeper than what you might expect in other pubs.

If you’re planning on heading to the Beckham’s favourite boozer, it’s also worth noting that dogs aren’t allowed in past 6pm and are prohibited from ‘yapping, barking, or whining’. Children can only stay until 5pm, and ‘must be well-behaved kept at table and escorted to the toilet.’ Pushchairs are also ‘discouraged’.

It’s probably also best, if you do spot Posh propping up the bar, not to hound her for pictures or an autograph. Otherwise, it’s unlikely to stay a beloved lowkey haunt for the star for long.

But if you’re in the area – perhaps after a stroll around Little Venice or Portobello Market – and can ensure you won’t be tempted to give Victoria your best Wannabe rendition while she enjoys her pint, it’s worth a visit.
