My first, but certainly not my last, visit to the Moody Cow was on Sunday for lunch. Upton Bishop is just 2 miles from the roundabout at the south end of the M50 and is easy to find being signposted off that roundabout. The restaurant has ample parking, which is as well as it can be very busy.
You are welcomed as soon as you walk in and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. The menu was all you hope to be offered for Sunday lunch - beef, pork, lamb, fish and veg dish main courses are all there.. We started with goujons of plaice that had never seen a freezer and were pefectly cooked. Normally offered with a chilli jam, my allergy to chillies was easily catered for by the substituion of a delicious pesto mayo sauce which I confess I will be making myself before the end of the month! We chose Welsh lamb for main course which arrived with caramelised shallots, creamed leeks, new and roast potatoes, mange tous, carrots and a dellcious swede puree. On the top of the lamb was a parcel of fine green beans, wra\pped in bacon and served in a crisp crust. It was one of the best Sunday lunch main courses I have ever eaten with gravy so good you could roll in it !!! The portions were just the right size but, by the time I had eaten 2 courses I struggled for a full 5 seconds with a decision about pudding, which in my case wasa superb Frangipan Tart served with clotted cream! My partner peered over the top of a Moddy Cow Sundae only long enough to tell me how very good the components were. As a result I had a couple of spoonsful of wonderful sloe gin ice cream, just one of the three flavours in his glorious sundae. With a bottle of Vignonier the bill, without tip, was £77. Stand up and take a bow Moody Cow, that was an outstanding experience and one I look forward to repeating very soon. Thanks to all involved . xxx
