At the Moody Cow we have created the perfect place to relax and enjoy superb food, drinks and hospitality in a delightful village setting.
We are just minutes from junction 4 of the M50 and two miles from the historic market town of Ross on Wye in the beautiful Wye Valley.
- THE lounge -
has large, cosy Chesterfield sofas in front of a roaring fire. Relax here with a glass of something special after dinner, or enjoy a coffee after lunch.
The lounge is part of the Kitchen bar, so you're still able to enjoy the warm atmosphere!
- THE KITCHEN -
Featuring scrubbed pine tables, heavy wooden chairs, and filled with interesting kitchen objects, pewter tankards, and the famous Moody Cow puzzle, this is the perfect setting for a family gathering.
- THE WORKSHOP -
Using upcycled industrial seating, reclaimed wood, and subtle lighting, The Workshop is filled with old tools that have a story to tell. This room is great for meeting with friends, bustling with activity and the theatre of cocktail making and the art of the barista.
- THE BARN -
With heavily beamed high ceilings, stone walls and soft lighting, as well as generous and comfortable leather side chairs and circular tables, The Barn offers an altogether more restful space, great for a more formal occasion.
- THE GRAIN STORE -
Located in a detached barn accessed directly from the car park, the grain store is perfect for those occasions where you want to host your own private party. Suitable for a group of six or seven guests we will agree every detail of your booking a few days in advance. The wine rack and fridge will be stocked, the cask ale racked and the food we have prepared delivered just in time for you to serve your guests, if it is chilly we will light the wood burner and then leave you to it, just popping by from time to time to make sure that you have everything you need.
It could be a family celebration, catching up with old friends or watching the big match with your best mates, drop us a line if you would like to know more.
- About the moody cow -
In April 2011 we learned that the Moody Cow was about to be closed down. At the time we were running a training and conferencing centre based in a seventeenth century barn about seven miles away. We shared a bottle of wine (or two) and decided that we were going to save the Moody Cow from closure. We had a simple vision, we wanted to create the kind of pub we would like to go to ourselves. Fresh home made food, using the best local ingredients we could find, attentive but relaxed and informal service and a well kept cellar.
Tom, who heads our kitchen team has been with us from the very start, creating innovative dishes rich in flavour and packed with the freshest most local ingredients.
We have completed all of the major repairs to the building and have made many improvements to the kitchens and created three dining rooms each with an individual atmosphere and charm to suite the occasion and who you are dining with.
We keep our own hens and use the eggs in our cooking and grow some of our own herbs in the Moody Cow allotment .
We are very lucky to have great relationships with local fruit and vegetable growers, wine merchants, farmers, and brewers, many who are also our customers and produce the best ingredients right here on our doorstep.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Moody Cow soon.
