As The Moody Cow is some 6O miles away from us we tend to only go for special occasions - which is a shame. If it was more local to us we'd be very frequent visitors. The food is varied, tasty, well presented and delicious....More

We welcome dogs in the bar, and of course outside if the weather is fine, we have fresh water and treats too, but do let us know if you are coming so that we can reserve a suitable table for you
