Further Information

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.

Very nice meal and good company. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. We shared a nacho starter which was fine for three and burger was great. My guests had a fish curry and loved it.

Staff great, food better than most (it was a quiet night so don't quote me for a busy night) and the portion size is Ok. I had the belly pork starter and was disappointed over the portion size, 2x 4cm cubes of perfectly cooked belly pork with a shrimp on top of each and one spare, could have been a little..... more. Everyone else's starter were more generous so there is no real complaint, I guess I just love crispy belly pork (explains my fat belly, you are what you eat after all). Main courses were all perfectly cooked, the meat on my baby ribs fell off the bone as I lifted them from the plate. All the steaks were cooked to perfection with portions so perfect neither my lady, mother or sister actually finished. The deserts.... sorry I can't comment on those as no one had one. From the list there was nothing inspiring or original and I would have loved to try the cheese board but as my lady is on a diet before her holiday so am I. All the male readers will know the look I got and with my head hung in shame I will surrender my man card as I collapsed under that look and said "No thank you", sorry guys. So.... I didn't waste my time or money going there, now it's your turn to decide.

We were greeted and seated quickly and by friendly staff. The place was busy and after initially waiting for drinks we were served very efficiently. All staff were pleasant and sorted us out with drinks and food in a friendly and professional manner throughout our visit. The manager kept an eye on everything and asked if we were being looked after. She made sure everyone was getting good service. The food was cooked the way we asked and was delicious. There was plenty of it. Our friends remarked at the size of their portions but they managed to get through it OK! The atmosphere was relaxed. There was plenty of space to move around even though it was busy. No intrusive music. We will visit again.

Lovely friendly staff today which made us feel welcome on this our first visit. Really delicious food and especially desert. We had sticky toffee pudding which was perfect, chocolate orange cheesecake and lime and passion fruit cheescake, all were fabulous. We stayed quite awhile as we wanted to talk and we were put under no pressure to leave, just offered drinks now and then. We didn't need it today but I noticed there was air conditioning in the conservatory, would have been a big bonus if we'd been ther yesterday. We will be back, it was exactly what we wanted😀😄. Oh and the twenty somethings commented on the good music being played too.

This was my first visit to The Moody Cow - Apperley Bridge. The lady that greeted us was very friendly. The food was outstanding. I have recommended the restaurant to all my friends and will be visiting again very soon. The only negative was the volume of the music. I found it slightly too loud.

I was really looking forward tot he meal as i have heard excellent things about the food etc The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the 'salad bar' is a really good idea. I like that you can supplement your main meal with salad (which is what i personally prefer) as well as having it as starter if you wish. the only huge issue we had (there were two of us) was the acoustics in the conservatory where we were sat. Just the sound of people talking was extremely loud, so much so i could barely hear what my other half was saying. It was very very noisy and distracting and quite uncomfortable. Fair enough we could have asked to move but i can't think that anyone can possibly enjoy sitting in that area. the noise just bounces around. next time i go i will have to request a table in the main building area.

Lovely meal again. A different menu to that which we were expecting as it is our second visit in a few weeks and hadn't checked the menu before we went! My husband's steak was cooked as requested and the ribs we ordered were fabulous. My son's only complaint was that he could have eaten more as they were so good. There was a mix up in the description of the dessert on the specials board - we expected a traditional Eton Mess and received something more like a strawberry mousse with 2 large meringue pieces on top. However, when we queried it, it was removed from the bill immediately, even though we didn't request or even suggest this. We will certainly be back.
