Lovely tasty food

Came for an evening meal on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. Really good quality well presented tasty food. I would have preferred not to sit on the high stools as I felt insecure so in future would request the normal chairs and low tables otherwise cannot fault the place.

We had visited the local countryside and whilst I had driven past the Moody Cow many times I had never gone in. Lovely welcoming atmosphere, good bar area, the place was spotless, and the toilets were the best I have ever visited in Herefordshire. Then the Landlord came and chatted - What a nice guy!

The Moody Cow has fantastic food and their fish and chips are, in my humble and uneducated opinion, the best anywhere. The batter is light and crispy but not greasy, and the onion rings are sublime!

Haven now been to Moody Cow for 2 Sunday lunches, the best food we've ever had and a regular conversation piece when it comes to roast dinners in our family. My family come up from Kent to visit me and there's no doubt that my first choice to take them out for dinner to is Moody Cow! Food is wonderful,... More

We booked a table for lunchtime to celebrate two family birthdays. The booking process was smooth and the table was ready and waiting when we arrived. They made us all (including our 1 year old) very welcome and even provided jigsaws for our daughter (the only thing missing was a changing mat in the toilets - this would have been... More

Thank you for your super review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your family celebration with us. We love it when three generations of the same family all enjoy the experience.
