I would like the say a big thank all at the Moody Cow restaurant for the excellent service received at my daughters birthday meal on the 16th. We booked the table about a week before but had to cancel due to my daughters commitments at work. Then several days after work was charged. I called the restaurant and explained. They... More

Impromptu visit to this little gem en-route home to Cheshire from a meeting. OMG what a beautiful restaurant. Outstanding welcome and personal service. Our meal was delicious and we fought over our 'shared' deserts .... We are already planning a reason to return 😀

Ate here on a Thursday evening. Every dish we ordered was excellent, really fresh, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. All dishes were clearly labelled with allergens and dishes could be adapted. One of the party suffers from Coeliac's disease and knowledge of this was excellent so her needs were accommodated. There was no children's menu but an offer to... More

Just a lovely relaxing lunch on a September Saturday. Although it's been a couple of years since we last visited our host remembered us. Food was top notch; my mother especially enjoyed the fish and chips and her dessert. We left promising to come back sooner next time.

My wife and I were meeting another couple from Bromsgrove, we live in South Wales and a venue about half way was required, several in the Ross-on-Wye area were considered and all looked good with great reviews, but the deciding factor for this establishment was its name - The Moody Cow! The location is on a 'B' classified road about... More

We visited on a Saturday evening whilst enjoying a visit to Ross-on-Wye. I had booked The Moody Cow having read reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The menu was extensive and full of interest. The service was very smooth and timely. The atmosphere was friendly and, most importantly, the meal was delicious. Whilst we were there a family of...

Having never been but been impressed by the reviews, we were not disappointed by the food. Well presented, pleasant staff & not rushed at all. You can tell the quality produce used as this is reflected in the dishes served. Not cheap eats. Would not hesitate to recommend.

We had a large family celebration here last weekend and it was excellent! Our party organiser had undercounted the number of us (I think 18 people in the end), but luckily the pub took it in their stride. The owner has a dry sense of humour (same as me!) but was a really lovely host, even taking a moment to... More
