Taking its name from an old local rhyme, The Red Cow near Leicester has been refreshing its guests since the 17th century. It offers well-loved British pub cuisine which can be enjoyed from the pretty beer garden in summer or by the hearth in winter. Furnished with rustic oak beams and eclectic trinkets, The Red Cow is a peaceful country retreat.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Red Cow menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Red Cow ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Red Cow resides in the countryside just outside of Leicester, 5 minutes’ drive away.

    I had a steak which has exceptionally good. Mywife had the chicken pie which use to be her favourite but the recipe has definitely changed and was not very good, reconstituted chicken. Service very good, particularly Gemma.

    We arrived 10 minutes late on arrival our table wasn't ready and had to be cleared from previous dinners eventually 20 mins later we were shown to our table.
    After seating we found the service to be very good by the lady waiting our table. She was very warm and friendly and the food was delish.
    Over all a very pleasent experience many thanks
