The Red Cow started out in the 1650's as a very small inn in a row of cottages in a village near Leicester. Our name comes from an old rhyme which relates to the pub restaurant. "The old red cow, Which never did low, With coat as soft as silk. Come in, if you please, And sit down at your ease, And taste her nut brown milk".
A perfect stop before going on to Leicester Racecourse, The Red Cow pub is a rare treasure for walkers enjoying the heart of the rolling Leicestershire countryside, a charming thatched inn of great character.
