The food, service and atmosphere were all fantastic. We had a wonderful meal at the Moody Cow. The portions were generous so we were glad we shared a starter and desert together.

We visited at the recommendation of a local whilst on holiday. We were not disappointed on arrival at this stylishly refurbished country pub. We were greeted by the friendly and efficient staff. The menu was varied and a bit better than average pub fare. We chose the venison and duck and both were very well cooked and presented. Service was... More
