Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

2 adults, and our 2 children ate at The Moody Cow last night, having nearly cancelled due to the last couple of reviews. We couldn't fault it. The waitress was friendly and welcoming, showing us to a corner table in the bar area, which looked...to be around a third full. We had the bacon steak, pork belly, burger and chicken nuggets off the kids menu, followed by a couple of desserts. The food was tasty, good portions, and it arrived quickly. If you're after decent pub style food at reasonable prices, then this is the place, with a large car park and well stocked bar.More

Worst curry I have ever had! Was more like stewed steak with absolutely no flavour and full of oil. We’ve eaten here a few times and the food is usually ok. We stay on the campsite in our camper van a few times a year...and this was our first night away from our 6 week old baby. Disappointed to say the least.More

Contacted Moody Cow 3 times to discuss issues with our meal. Each time I was told management would call me never happened. Arrived at lunch time without reservation we were left standing for 30 mins. No offer of a chair as I'm on walking stick....I had vegan roast which was awful. A tiny square of nut roast very dry and burnt around the edge absolutely inedible. Arrived at table covered in salad leaves to hide this food disaster. The roast dinner was OK but some vegetables had run out as had one of the meat choices. They were not being replaced as it was late in service. Disappointing meal won't be visiting again and I'm a local resident!More

Very dissapointed with both mine & my wifes' Sunday lunch. Not a great selection of veg, the cabbage was chopped up into small pieces(suitable for young chidren) & the slices of meat were one of the thinnest slices i've ever had (Beef) my wife had...both beef & turkey which were also very thin. Not very impressed at all, will not return.More

Like prior, also had rude staff and overcharged. Check your bill before you pay. My prior review was removed without any contact from The Moody Cow to verify what I have on record is true. It’s annoying when personal opinion gets removed for no reason.

Can’t comment on the food as we were treated so rudely on arrival, we decided not to stay - shame as we were looking for a place for a big family get-together and this place has great reviews. Went to check out the place by...having coffee and a cake, but were ‘greeted’ by a very unfriendly woman - turns out the signs saying ‘please wait to be seated’ only apply to dinner, so we really should have known not to trouble her by asking whether we could sit somewhere and have an afternoon snack . Didn’t bother going to the shop after that.More

Lovely surroundings and very friendly and efficient staff. We had burgers a chicken wrap and a teacake that were all delicious and served with a smile. Thank you and we’ll be back.

Gone downhill. Very short on staff. Charged £2.70p for a small jug of tap water! Steak like tanned leather. Toilets dirty. Food bland. Gave one star (not zero stars, only wish one could) their saving grace is they allow dogs in. This place has to...seriously up its game to compete with far better places.More

First time at the restaurant, it was very busy due to half term and the rugby being shown there. The young staff worked very hard as they were constantly on the go. Our table had six different dishes which came out at the same time...except one as there an issue with the fish dish, The server explained the issue and the remade dish came out a few minutes later. I wish other restaurants had the same quality control standards. Well done to all.More

Very Disappointing! We have been to the Moody Cow on many occasions and have usually had a good meal with great service even when the restaurant is very busy. Yesterday it was very quiet so we expected quick service. Firstly the member of staff only...gave us half a menu so I had to ask if it was a reduced service. Rather than apologise she just blamed other members of staff for not printing it out properly. After we had the full menu we waited and although waitresses rushed by no one came to take our order. After 30 minutes we got up to leave we were smiled at by a waitress but she didn't ask if there was a problem. We had a table near the bar so we were easily seen. We have often visited the Moody Cow with friends and have recommended it to others but we won't in future. We were made to feel our custom was unimportant.More

Lovely breakfast, besides the food it’s the details that I need .. hot plates, proper sauce in a clean container, steaming hot , proper butter . You can have best food but without the details it doesn’t do it justice. Here does lovely
