We have seen massive changes in just about every aspect of this venue from excellent if pricey down to the staff querying why we return when it was so awful. Many changes of ownership have meant many different experiences and I am happy to say it really... More

Called in here on the off chance July 2015 where in all honesty it wasn't the cheapest pub lunch but after visiting for a drink previously we wanted a fish and chip lunch. Great portions and beautiful food, I've tried to recreate the minted peas but not quite nailed it. Dessert was a sticky toffee pudding with no problem requesting... More

The menu choices were so good we had difficulty choosing because we wanted them all! The quality of food was outstanding, and we both agreed it was the best Sunday roast we've had - and we've had a few! The pub itself is in a lovely location and the building is beautiful. Last, but certainly not least, the staff were... More

We went here for a birthday meal and it was absolutely fantastic. The deep fried Brie with almonds was perfect, the duck was beautifully cooked and the fish and chips were wonderful. Lovely atmosphere and great service.

We visited the Moody Cow pub/restaurant in the small village of Upton Bishop in Herefordshire on the 21st July 2016. On arrival we were lead to a lovely set table within an interesting part if the building. Our waitress was very attentive and the menu contained a varied choice of dishes from meat to fish and to other exotic preparations.... More

We have eaten here a few times and when we have visiting guests we always book a table here. The food is excellent as is the service and environment. Very friendly, dogs welcome and we shall return time and time again.

We have visited The Moody Cow several times and every visit has been superb! We popped in one evening on the off chance and since then have taken my mother in law and family out on two more occasions as this pub (an eatery more than for beers) is really one of the best places to eat around this area....
