Really nice pub with friendly staff and incredible food. My girlfriend and I called in for lunch and had a great meal - I had the belly pork and sticky toffee pudding, my girlfriend had the hand-made burger and the chocolate brownies, all come highly recommended. Just need an excuse to go back!

Having read the reviews, I was very interested in trying the food here, Sadly I was disappointed. Very pleasant interior however the food was adequate and not really anything special, I have eaten better locally and found that the it was expensive for what was being offered. As per my title - may be got it on off day.

As a dog owner who lives with a vegetarian, finding a place to have lunch is more difficult than for most. We've had plenty of disappointments, as either 'dog friendly' means 'in the garden' or 'vegetarian options' mean 'token risotto dish'. So we were very pleasantly surprised. Nothing really says 'dog friendly' like being given a few treats on arrival.... More

We have visited the Moody Cow quite a few times now and have to say that when we visited for lunch on the 15th October it was just as great as ever. The warm welcome and friendly banter, the great service by friendly staff and the terrific food makes our day every time. We will be back again soon. Mike... More

We booked last minute midweek for six (all men on a walking holiday) and were given a great table despite being pretty busy. The service was efficient, professional and very friendly with some great local advice for our stay from the owner. The menu was spot-on with a good range and the quality was top notch - great Herefordshire steak.... More

Taken here by friends last Saturday for lunch & it was by far the best meal I can ever remember having, it was absolutely superb. We all loved the food, the welcome was excellent, atmosphere was good considering we were towards the end of luncheon and there were'nt many people left in. The Landlady & Landlord were very friendly, discussed... More

Really enjoyed our Sunday lunch here last Sunday. The food was excellent and the staff and owners very friendly and welcoming. We especially loved the fact that we were able to have our family dog sat right next to us inside the pub while we dined. Although we are from the Midlands and the pub is just over an hour... More

We've just returned from the Moody Cow debating if 3 hour round trip makes it too far to go back. The Sunday roasts (my husband had beef, I had lamb) were both good quality meat with a good selection of veg and served with both roasties and new potatoes. The orange and honey bread and butter pudding was absolutely superb... More
