Red Cow Inn Stoke On Trent

Refurbishment Planned!

In terms of location, The Red Cow occupies the best of both worlds. The pub is located on a main road just outside of Stoke-on-Trent, right next to residential areas and shops. There are over 5,000 adults within a 20 minute walk and there are plans underway to build 75 new houses nearby. The pub also sits on the cusp of unspoilt Shropshire countryside, which will be highlighted following the pub's refurbishment. With little competition, the internal refurbishment will ensure The Red Cow is the stand-out pub in the area, attracting a diverse range of customers, both locally and from further afield.

A new refurbishment will elevate The Red Cow into a stunning local pub, with a standout food menu, offering destination dining in beautiful surroundings. A refreshed interior will provide the perfect, ambient space for customers to enjoy a drink or quality pub meal. A prominent feature of the refurbishment will be the new external dining area, with a retractable roof and sides, offering stunning views of the Shropshire landscape. The works will enable The Red Cow to become a lively and sociable venue, placing it at the heart of the community.

The refurbishment will create an exceptional pub capable of trading at all points of the day, appealing to the whole community year-round. The feature external dining area will be a huge draw during warmer months, attracting couples, groups and families alike. The pub's great reputation for quality food can be capitalised on and expanded following the improved decor of the dining area.
