We will open our dining rooms on Wednesday the 19th of May and you can book right now by completing the request on our book now page, it is quick and easy and ensures that your request is dealt with on a first come first served basis. We will confirm the details with you as soon as we can, but usually in under 48 hours.

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

 Right now we are putting the finishing touches to a number of exciting new ideas which, we can’t wait to share with you.


What are we doing now?

 We will continue to open the Moody Cow Chuck Wagon on a Friday and Saturday evening, you don’t need to take your food away, the courtyard garden will be open, the wood burners will be lit if it is chilly, and we will be offering chilled beer, lager and cider, freshly ground coffee, fresh leaf teas, infusions, jugs of Pimm’s, luxury hot chocolate, cocktails, mocktails and draught cask conditioned ale.

From the Chuck Wagon in addition to fresh Brixham haddock and chips on a Friday and Saturday night we have a vegetarian beetroot and chick pea burger served with chilli mayo, in a toasted brioche bun with dressed leaves, Mediterranean fillet of chicken in a toasted brioche bun and a quarter pound ground beefburger with garlic mayo in a toasted brioche bun, you can choose a cheese melt and you can double up to a half pound too.


If you fancy a healthier alternative you can swap the broiche bun for a salad for an additional £1.50

 We offer a range of homemade cakes and ice creams from Just Rachel in handy 100ml tubs

When the weather is fine we will open the Chuck Wagon on a Saturday and Sunday lunchtime too.

Before you make a special journey do check our Facebook page for updates, the Chuck Wagon can get very busy and when it’s gone it’s gone.

These are difficult times for many so this year, with your help, we are supporting our local food bank, we will donate 1% of our food sales St. Mary’s Community Larder in Ross on Wye, so far we have raised over £200.


We look forward to welcoming you back
