Alfie Best decided to buy the Rare Cow steak house and bar chain after being impressed by the food. Alfie said: “I really enjoyed the steak at the Billericay outlet and just got chatting with Richard Lester the owner. It turned out he was looking to move on to other things so I’ve jumped in quickly”.
The chain is popular with the Only Way is Essex actors and actresses Ricky Rayment, Jessica Wright and Mario Falcone. ITV2 filmed part of a recent TOWIE episode at the Billericay outlet where James Argent attempted to tackle a steak challenge. Other regulars include former Eastenders star Billy Murray and pop singer David Van Day.
