The Cow & Plough is situated in a barn outside of the centre of Oadby. It belongs to the Steamin' Billy brewery. The two rooms inside have plenty of character. Steamin' Billy beers on were Bitter, Billy, Skydiver & Vardy's Volley. Fullers London Pride is supposedly always on. Guests were Abbeydale Moonshine & Black Sheep Golden Sheep. Another nice pub. But would have been better with a dark ale or a cider.

Welcome return to this wonderful pub, missed the junction on the motorway last year on the way back from the Peaks with Mrs Monk, so hadn't visited for a couple of years. Had the Steamin' Billy bitter; then Sky Divin' and the Abbeydale Redemption, both around 5% and both excellent, even Mrs Monk approved. Sunday lunchtime was pretty busy and the comment from Steve45 about "who's next?" happened to me, which may be nit picking but it is irritating that customers are either so anonymous or the bar staff take no interest in seeing who is next. That doesn't detract from both wonderful food and beer - I'd say two x two course Sunday lunches for 27.90 was excellent value considering the quality of the food - see what you'd get for that in London or the home counties, most probably more costly and certainly from the Brakes pre - cooked heat up in the pub range. Considering it's 3.20-50 for a bog standard bitter in most London pubs I'd say the 3.00 per pint for the 5% ales was damned good. I wish I had a pub like this within 10 miles of where Mrs Monk and I live. 9.5/10

Beer is generally ok, food overpriced. Be prepared to wait some time to be served when busy. The bar staff, mostly young ladies are ok, but have a tendancy to ask "who's next" when there is more than 2 people waiting to be served, when they either do know or like any good bar staff, certainly should!

With a bar staff that seems to change at least as regularly as the generally top guest ales they serve here. An obvious "must" on the "Oadby barcrawl" much beloved by certain first year University of Leicester students living in Halls, which starts here, and continues on to (and finishes at) 'Spoons. Essentially an "old mans" pub, and a counterpoint to Steamin' Billy's more student-orientated "Western". Always friendly staff.

Well said trainman! Called in on an all too rare visit last Saturday. Excellent pint of Spring Mild and polite service.
