Gastro Pub
Formerly an 18th Century farmhouse boasting exposed beams, oak floors, exposed brickwork and oak tables. This leads to a very relaxed and cosy atmosphere with candle lit tables and real flame stoves.

The cuisine is typically modern European, classically cooked using cornerstones such as stock pots to create their sauces with a brigade that has a passion for what they do.

This is exciting times for the pub which now has a new bar serving real ale straight from the cask. Be sure to check out the website regularly to keep up with the latest events and offers.

Why not pop in and see us soon The Moody Mare Country Pub

We had yet another lovely lunch at The Moody Mare! Lovely food and atmosphere. The kids loved their puddings, as did we and having the playground for the kids on a sunny day is an added bonus.

We have amazing memories of having our wedding dinner here, so love returning to reminisce and enjoy the food, wine and beer!

Thanks Moody Mare!

It was our first time at The Moody Mare for a family lunch. The venue was welcoming and relaxed and the staff friendly and professional. The food we had was delicious especially the charcuterie board starter. We had a very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you to everyone at The Moody Mare.

It really felt like the staff and owners at The Moody Mare had done everything possible to address Covid-19 issues, and still keep a great relaxed atmosphere. The huge tipis they've installed in the garden are fab, and they've done a lot to make spaces airy, distanced and clean. We ate in the front garden and that was very pleasant in the sunshine. Food very tasty as ever and took just the right amount of time. We really enjoyed ourselves having a drink and lunch before a long walk in the beautiful woods right behind the pub. We stopped in on the way back too. It's one of my favourite places for a bit of weekend relaxing. Thanks so much.

They are changing the place and have erected a tent and some new rooms which will be really good. Food was very average though which is a shame, if they get that up to par it will be great.
