Went to the Moody Cow by chance last Sunday with my daughter, son in law and 19 month old granddaughter, what a find! Lovely atmosphere, service and the food was delicious. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or attentive and children, dogs and well behaved adults are all welcome.

I will certainly be going back.

Probably visit a couple of times per year, the food continues to be excellent. Always freshly cooked to order with a decent portion size. All staff are efficent and happy to help and the owners maintain a good friendly banter with the customers.

This time it was starters of Duck Spring Rolls, Fishcakes and Soup of the Day, with mains of Belly Pork, Duck and Fish. All I can say is that all plates where empty at the end. I recommend sharing a Sundae to round off the meal nicely, would not hesitate to recommend to anybody.

We ate here a year ago and really enjoyed our meal.

Well, it's even better now. The restaurant area is open. It's very nicely done and spaciously laid out.

The food is excellent. Very well cooked and presented, extremely tasty and good portions.

The owners are very personable and its great to see all the work they are doing to make it better and better.

Keep up all the effort you are making - we'll be back!

We were returning from a great day out at Cardiff city stadium and spotted a sign for the moody cow. Let's give it a try I said to the lad, it'll break up the journey back to Bolton.
Lucky me I was rewarded with a great plate of food. Belly pork and mash along with a great point of Otter Bitter. Bliss.
With a bit (a lot) of luck Bolton will get promoted this year and we will have a another opportunity to drop into the moody cow.

We took two friends to the Moody Cow yesterday and everyone was most impressed by the delicious food, the friendly and efficient service and the general ambiance. This really is an outstanding pub and deserves an excellent review rating.

Our friends left saying: "The whole experience was so good, I don't think we will be able to match this when you come to visit us"

Thank yo so much for your review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed entertaining your friends at the Moody Cow, it is also most reassuring that we matched up to the excellent rating that you gave us when you last visited us.

Every week we improve something at the Moody Cow, sometimes this is quite obvious and others it may be just a little thing but it never ceases to amaze me how many little things our regular guests notice.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Moody Cow soon.
