Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Little trace of the old pub remains. The car park is at the back and that is where the entrance is. Very nicely adapted and decorated with plenty of light and well spaced tables. The whole feeling is relaxed, as are the staff, who undertsnad...what a good customer experience should be like. The crab and cow motif is everywhere in various guises. The menu is not enormous but well varied. All four of us chose from the lunch menu, which offered a well thought out selection. Good restaurant wine selection. Leire is not a big village, so the continued success of the Crab & Cow proves that customers come from a pretty wide area. You can understand why.More

Although my steak was cooked well, it only came with one tomato, one mushroom and some fries - no veg or garnish. I asked for a side salad - this consisted of a very small bowl of leaves, 3-4 olives and a couple of cherry...tomatoes and I was charged an additional £4.25 for this - on top of steak at £28!More

We found this on trip advisor, staying in the nearby Leonardo hotel Hinckley for work (the restaurant for which was horribly slow), and the crab and cow was FANTASTIC! it was a Tuesday and they had pie night, two of us ordered the pie which...was stunning and another had the steak which she said was very good! We also shared the scotch egg and scallops to start which were also great. Lovely decoration and staff! Thank you for such a lovely meal, we couldn’t have done better!More

myself and my husband haven't been here for over a year so we thought for a meal out treat, lets return to the C&C. we went on a tuesday evening where they do their a la carte, set menu and it's also pie night. we...were surprised how busy it was when we arrived so we were glad we'd booked a table! to eat i had the set menu (3 courses for £30) and my husband had one of their pies. To start we both had the scotch egg which we both loved! all the food we had throughout the evening was nicely presented, tasted amazing and was nice and hot. the service we had throughout the evening to from members of the team was friendly, helpful and professional. So another great evening at the C&C. Both the food and the service. We'll be back another another time im sure!More

Went there for our small Christmas work do. ( two couples). It was steak night and we had two chateaubriands between us for main course and they were fantastic. cooked to our liking and really good quality. Starters of Croquettes, scotch egg and Goat Cheese...tarts were a great kick off. Then to finish a Pistachio and cherry pudding and a treacle and orange tart. yummy. Staff were really nice too!More

Great food and service. Had only two complaints, the roast potatoes were cold! Replaced immediately and for us, we prefer a longer wait between starter and main. To be fair, we would tell them next time. Been searching fir ages for a place for good...Sunday lunch and we found it!More

Saturday night treat the the better half and certainly was a treat ! As always the service was outstanding. The restaurant is really chilled with lovely decor and a nice vibe! Beef croquettes and black pudding stotch egg for starters were delicious followed by Chateaubriand...which was devine probably the best meal we've had at the crab and cow! Just wish they would change the menu now and again it been the same for 3 yearsMore

We came here on Saturday for lunch. It’s a beautiful old pub in a lovely village. We both really enjoyed the food and have booked again for our daughter’s birthday. Would definitely recommend a visit

Visited the Crab & Cow for the first time for the Tapas night on a Wednesday. We were made to feel immediately welcome, and the staff were very friendly and attentive. There is an excellent choice of beers and wine by the glass. The food...was absolutely beautiful, delicious, and well presented. Overall we were very impressed and will definitely be vising again soon!More

My partner and I were so looking forward to Sunday lunch at the Crab & Cow on Sunday 22nd. My partners’ daughter and another acquaintance had eaten there and raved about the food. First the good - lovely surroundings, friendly professional, attentive, restaurant and bar...staff, and an excellent, varied, Sunday lunch menu. Now the bad - once the delicious looking food was served, my partner and I commented to one another that our respective meals were only luke warm (a pet peeve for both of us and I’m sure most, if not all, reading this review!). We mentioned this to our server, who offered to return both meals to the kitchen or bring us ‘hot’ gravy. Not wanting to create a fuss, we foolishly chose option two. We should of realised even with hot gravy being poured over warm food, it still means it’s warm food not hot. For some inexplicable reason, I was feeling particularly charitable. I should of created more of a fuss and received a considerable reduction in the bill total. We were offered no reduction in the bill, nor was any form of compensation, for the ruined dining experience offered (free dessert, free coffees, etc.). To show there were no hard feelings toward the serving staff, I actually left a 20% tip over and above our £80 bill. I absolutely hate leaving negative reviews but this is warranted. Needless to say, we will not be returning to the Crab & Cow, a huge disappointment!More
