My partner and I decided to try The Moody Cow for a Sunday lunch after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor. My partner had the beef and I had the pork, both were cooked beautifully and all of the vegetable accompaniments were absolutely delicious. I wish that I had skipped breakfast because I couldn't finish the entire meal!

Our second visit for family Sunday lunch. Friendly,efficient service. Good menu choice. Loved the mussels and Yorkshire pud and sticky toffee pudding (not all on the same plate !). We could have eaten more vegetables but if I only this pub were closer to home we`d be in every week.

I'm not one to use trip advisor but really wanted to on this occasion. We've stayed up in the Ledbury area every new year for the past 4 years and have always walked our dogs around this area. Somehow we only came across this lovely pub last Thursday! We popped in to get some lunch but unfortunately they were fully... More

Really enjoyed our lunch with friends - food as good as always, particularly the chips and the sticky toffee pudding - not at the same time! - service was really friendly and the atmosphere was lovely - Christmas trees, open fire, a mixture of families, groups of friends and couples - will not leave it as long before our next...
