After a lick of paint and a spruce up, The Red Cow pub is well on its way to being restored to its former glory days.
The new landlords, Craig Latham and Michael Smith, are excited to bring The Red Cow in Werrington, back to being the heart of the community.
Having been patrons of this local pub for over 26 years, they decided to take on the challenge of running it after several of its regulars mentioned the idea to them.
Michael explains: “We both felt that the community needed The Red Cow to be back on the map and after so much pressure from the locals we re-opened it.
“It was such a shame to see it so run down as I have worked there on and off for 25 years and have a lot of great memories there and wanted to continue to keep the pub smiling.”
The pubs revamp has made way for a lot of changes, the main one being the menu. Craig explained how he wanted the menu to be a focus, but something different from what you usually except to find in a pub.
They’ve even gone to the trouble of buying specific diner ware to compliment the menu but won’t give anything away, encouraging you to try it for yourself.
Craig admits: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the community response, there’s a real affection for the place.
“We support a few local causes including Werrington Youth Support and Werrington Parish Plan and hope to give back more to the community as they’ve supported us so much.”
Although the pub has been given a refreshing new look, the building is still set to undergo a major £250,000 refurbishment sometime this summer. The beer garden and conservatory are set to benefit the most from this investment helping to make the most of the pubs spectacular countryside views.
