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.

    My experience at the Red Cow was really good. The staff were friendly, especially the young lady who served our food. All guests enjoyed the meal, and I thoroughly enjoyed the lamb shank. It was beautifully cooked and the meat just fell off the bone! I will definitely have it again. All in all, a really good afternoon.

    Loved it. Although they seemed understaffed for the occasion (our prosecco was forgotten) we did have a lovely meal, good staff and lovely pub. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you ??
