The Cow & Plough


The Cow & Plough

The Cow & Plough is a gastropub in Leicestershire that is known for its delicious food, extensive beer selection, and friendly atmosphere.

The pub is located in a former farm building, and the interior has been tastefully restored to retain its rustic charm. The menu features a wide variety of pub favorites, as well as more creative dishes made with fresh, local ingredients. 

The pub now features an al fresco dining area, wood-fired stone-baked pizza shack and a 1-acre kitchen garden which supplies the restaurant menu with most of their fresh, seasonal produce. They have just over an acre of kitchen garden where they grow heritage varieties of salads, tomatoes, courgettes, cucumbers, numerous herbs, edible flowers and much more to supply their chefs for use on the menu.

Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar area and outside under control at all times.

Stoughton Grange Distillery on site produces small batch gins using botanicals collected from around the woodland site.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay, the Stoughton Grange Glamping Pods let you escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy a stay at Stoughton Grange. Set in the outskirts of Stoughton Village you will find their wonderful glamping pods.

You'll also find the Stoughton Grange Farm Shop, a family-run shop serving a wide range of products, including meat, poultry, fish, fruit, vegetables, dairy, bread, cakes, and more.

Other new businesses at the site include Petite Street Play VillageNatures Play (outdoor play for under 5s) and Fazakerley Homeware and Gifts and, alongside the long-standing Lollipops Pottery Studio, will make for the most perfect family trip.
