We are a classic village pub with wood burning stoves in winter, an elevated beer garden for summer and a warm welcome all year round.

You can find your favourite spot for you, your family and friends (including your four legged one).

We’re delighted to announce the new manager of The Spotted Cow will be Denise Sage. Denise is a very experienced manager with a strong track record as a driving force behind several award-winning local pubs, including The Exeter Arms and the Old Silk Mill in Derby and The Devonshire in Belper. We feel fortunate to have secured Denise’s services and look forward with great confidence to the contribution she will make to your wonderful pub.
