We are currently closed.


We are now obliged to remain closed until the National restrictions are lifted.  We know that many of you have enjoyed treating yourselves to dishes from our dine at home menu, whether we were able to open our dining rooms or not.

We are now working on a refreshed dine at home menu which we intend to launch in February


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

Our Story


Over the last ten years our Head Chef, Tom Piper, with the help of his dedicated team, has earned a reputation for consistently creating innovative dishes, packed full of flavour, using the finest ingredients, many from growers and farmers right on our doorstep.

We have won a coveted listing in the Michelin Red Guide for the last seven years, and a TripAdvisor travellers choice ranking for every one of our ten years since saving the Moody Cow from closure in 2011. In addition, we have been listed as the best place to enjoy Sunday lunch in Herefordshire and the Guardian published the Moody Cow as one of the top fifty places to enjoy Sunday lunch in the UK.


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.

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

Dawn, Chris, Tom and the team

 Our delicious food


Here at The Moody Cow we’re passionate about good food, cooked well from fresh quality ingredients. This has been recognised by us being awarded the MICHELIN The Plate (L’Assiette). Click the link below for our full menu and to book a table.

Quench your thirst


Our selection of cask ales are kept in superb condition, and will always feature a locally brewed beer. As well as our popular ales, we stock a range of continental lagers and local ciders. If you are driving we have created a super non alcoholic cocktail and a couple of fantastic almost alcohol free bottled beers.

Our wine list is carefully selected to include new world favourites and some stunning locally produced wines.
