We went to The Moody Cow for my birthday meal whilst on holiday in the area following excellent reviews. The food was delicious, we had a slight hiccup with one of our meals but this was resolved immediately with first class service. Great portions, tasty meals and good quality produce. We would definitely return if we were in the area.

Very friendly welcome, good choice of drinks and extensive menus. I had the Belly Pork which was melt in the mouth and served with a good selection of vegetables. My OH had the beef burger which looked fantastic, and was a generous meal. Couldn't fit dessert as we were both full, which was a disappointment as they sounded wonderful. Would... More
