The Cow & Plough

Gartree Road, Stoughton Farm, OADBY, LE2 2FB

Housed in old Victorian farm buildings, The Cow & Plough continues to thrive, hosting functions and events including quarterly beer festivals. The pub also brews its own award-winning Steamin' Billy beers and ciders, named in honour of the owners' Jack Russell terrier. The interior is decorated with historic inn signs and brewing memorabilia, providing a fascinating setting in which to enjoy food from the regularly changing menus. Typical choices include terrine of prawn and smoked salmon, or quail Scotch egg with pig's head croquettes followed by confit duck leg with celeriac pommes Anna, green beans and red cabbage, or a vegetarian-friendly chargrilled vegetable tarte Tatin. A separate list of 'traditional dishes' offers the likes of lamb's liver and crispy bacon or a pie of the day (Thursday is pie night). Puddings continue in a traditional vein with the likes of lemon posset or baked blueberry and white chocolate cheesecake.
