Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our charity event on Saturday,  “Jeepers Creepers” was chosen as the overall
winner by the Deputy Mayor of Derby, Mr Ged Potter. Overall we raised over £1300 for Macmillan.
Fantastic turn out on the day from the village and great fun. There were eventually 34 scarecrows entered on the map/trail. We even made BBC Radio on the day.

Many Thanks!



A traditional 17th Century Derbyshire Coaching Inn nestling within the
conservation area of Allestree village, the Red Cow sits next door to the
12th Century village church of St Edmunds.

Host to the local community for hundreds of years offering fantastic
service, beautiful food, cask ales, and an ever expanding gin collection
if you fancy something stronger.

Popular with families, ramblers and dog walkers alike, we are perfectly
placed for a visit to Allestree Park and Hall. You can even bring your
four legged friend to visit us in the bar area, where we also serve food
or a hot drink to warm you up.
