Being called a moody cow is not usually a good sign in Yorkshire, but at The Moody Cow in Apperley Bridge, they’re proud to give themselves the name. They put the cow at the centre of their operations, and when we tell you that the centre of their operations is the grill, then you know you’re in for a treat. Steaks and burgers are the stars of the show at their bar and grill restaurant on Apperley Lane on the outskirts of Bradford so bust a gut down to Apperley Bridge and try out the best that their kitchen has to offer. Book a table now and head on over.
Yorkshire is packed with pubs where you can while an afternoon away with a superb meal, a few quality local pints and a welcoming atmosphere to spend your time. The Moody Cow on Apperley Road – directly between Rawdon and Apperley Bridge on the outskirts of Bradford – is the brainchild of James Boshier and Martin Oates, who have been in the hospitality sector for a combined 50 years, and opened the pub in Apperley Bridge in 2013. They offer bar snacks, cask ales and a huge range of steaks for the whole family to avoid.
When we say they serve steaks down at The Moody Cow in Apperley Bridge, we might not be doing them complete justice. They do more than just steaks: they do locally-reared, 28-day air-dried steaks in the form of rump, sirloin, ribeye, fillet or t-bone for individual sizes or bone-in ribeye and chateaubriand to share, as well as a mixed grill that takes in a few of the different size. The meat-lovers of Bradford can also try the baby-back ribs, chicken comes marinated in buttermilk and fried in breadcrumbs, or with garlic and herbs in a Kiev, or even spatchcocked and coated in piri-piri spices. There are vegetarian dishes too, and a few fishy favourites thrown in for good measure. Plenty of reasons, then, to get yourself and your family out to The Moody Cow – reserve your table.
The service was excellent, from the minute we stepped in we felt welcome. The food was absolutely delicious and this was helped by the steak night deal. Would definitely recommend visiting
Our 1st is it to the Moody cow but certainly not the last. The service was very good the steaks were absolutely 1st class and cooked perfectly for us, medium rare
One of the best Sunday lunches I've had for a long time. The food was very well cooked and tasted excellent, plus portions were quite generous. Service was quick and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
