We have visited the red cow 5 times now for lunch and dinner, (voting with our feet) on our first dinner visit I went for the Cottage Pie, it was a toss up between this and the Steak and Stilton Pie which was on special, it was a picture when it came up so I did a plate shot and sent it to friends, big jug of gravy and plenty of veg, the pie did not disappoint, full of meat and topped with creamy mashed potato and extra melted cheddar (optional), the plate shot worked and our friends asked us to join them for the Sunday roast, so we booked for the following sunday, the service was great and we were offered the option of the special within the Sunday lunch menu, Great! So I went for that Steak and Stilton Pie that I had been thinking about since my last visit, Large chunks of tender steak in a beautiful stilton sauce.. Fantastic! Our friends roasts looked great too (large Portions) lashings of gravy Yorkshire puddings and veg piled high, exactly how a traditional pub roast should be, in our next visit (evening midweek) we took more friends who wanted to eat out, this time I had the Smoked Salmon starter which was a really good quality salmon, a cut above the usual supermarket types, and for the main, Pie of course, this time I had the Chicken and bacon, the same beautiful pastry as before with big chunks of chicken and a rich creamy sauce, my friend had the Lamb Shank in red wine sauce which looked and smelt fantastic (I'm having that next time) on his recommendation, good hearty food in a traditional English pub with a fine selection of ales what more could you want on a cold winters day? (Friendly service and an open fire) they had that too!
