- 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.
