We are delighted that we will soon be able to open to guests and are already taking bookings from Wednesday the 19th May, to reserve a table just click on the link and we will confirm the details within 48 hours.

We look forward to welcoming you back, we have missed you so much.

In the meantime we continue to offer a dine at home menu on a Friday evening, the menu changes every week and is published on a Saturday on our food page, we ask that you email your order to dawn@moodycowpub.com by Wednesday evening so that we can order just the right amount of ingredients, this helps us to eliminate waste and you are most likely to get your preferred collection or delivery slot too.

These are difficult times for many, so this year we are supporting our local food bank, for every order we receive we will donate £1 worth of food to St. Mary’s Community Larder in Ross on Wye.

We have also published a special dine at home menu for Mother’s Day, the menu is on our food page, the deadline is Wednesday the 10th March, but we recommend booking as soon as possible because collection slots are limited.

The Moody Cow Chuck Wagon is open from 6pm to 8pm on Friday and Saturday in the Moody Cow car park and we are working on a plan to increase the opening times on fine days from Wednesday 14th April to take advantage of the opportunity for us all to dine outside.

We look forward to welcoming you back

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and understanding.

Our wine list is carefully selected from the classic and new world, and features some stunning wines, our cellar is well kept and features three cask conditioned ales from micro breweries as close as seven miles away, premium continental lagers, local cider and Guinness.

Our service is attentive, but informal, Children are most welcome and we love it when you bring your pet dog too.
