A very pleasant lunch rendezvous with our visiting Australian cousins. A good menu but with only one veggie option, which a colleague tells me has not changed on the menu for ages. Excellent local beer and a friendly welcome, in fact not moody at all. Will definitely come again when in the area.

We were visiting Ross on Wye and decided to take an impromptu lunch so checked out Trip Advisor first, something that we tend to do a lot before going anywhere. We chose The Moody Cow based on its great reviews. Its a blessing that we arrived fairly early since its very popular and soon became full. Any later and we... More

This is a short taxi ride out of Roos on Wye where we staying. Thankfully we had booked a table as even though it was a Wednesday night they were fully booked and had to turn several people away. It's understandable why they are so busy though, it's a lovely place, really nicely decorated and the food is fantastic. The... More

We are so pleased that you called ahead to reserve a table, we often get fully booked during the week and almost... More

We visited The Moody Cow for lunch yesterday and were really looking forward to it as we visited the pub regularly in the past and were told by a few friends that it was worth a visit. We arrived for just after 1.45 and were told that we could n't eat as the kitchen were clearing down. It wasn't even... More

Thank you for your review. I am so very sorry that we were not able to accommodate you last Saturday lunchtime, You are quite right, we do serve food until 2.00pm, the reason for this is that our three ovens are then needed for cooking fresh dishes for the evening. If we can, we do usually offer something that does... More

Thank you for writing your third review since May. It is very reassuring to us all when our guests return again and again, it shows us that we are on track and continuing to get things right. That you should go to the trouble of writing a third review in just a six month period is quite exemplary, thank you.... More

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.
