Mandy Moo’s has been open for over three years and, thanks to locals and visitors alike, this small laid back and (well behaved) dog-friendly Café has gone from strength to strength. With a 5-Star Food Hygiene rating and a 5-Star TripAdvisor rating it seems to have found a winning formula by buying quality local and premium ingredients whilst achieving great value for money and excellent customer service. Owner Amanda Price commented “It’s hard work but I enjoy running the café enormously and find it great fun.”
Situated on Cantilupe Road, close to where it meets Gloucester Road, Mandy Moo’s started out as a take away salad, sandwich bar but soon changed into a café specialising in homemade cakes, scones, vegetarian soups, quiches and homemade meals and, of course, the AMAZING Salad Bar. You can call in for your breakfast (available all day and voted one of the best in town*) knowing it will be freshly cooked with nothing fried, or sample the veggie savoury or have a scrumptious cream tea. Once a month the Sunday Lunch Club is held. It is extremely popular and usually booked well in advance. If you would like to join please ring to add your name to the reserved list.
The regular daily specials, which Amanda says are “just like your Nan used to make,” are all home made, using quality ingredients. The choices include dishes such as steak and kidney pie, cottage pie and triple cheese burgers. At around £6 per person with potatoes and fresh vegetables this represents very good value for money. Everything is available to TAKE AWAY so, if you’re waiting for a bus and need a quick drink or are looking for something homemade for tea, pop in and Amanda can help you.
Being located close to local and national bus services Mandy Moos is an ideal place to get information on the area and traveling around it. It is one of 7 businesses designated as a ROSS TOURIST INFORMATION SITE.
Amanda asked “Do you know where the Outdoor Railway exhibit is or where the site of the Copse Cross Toll Gate is?” To find the answers to these questions and much more local information call in and ask.
Amanda added “We are now a ticket booking agent for Willets of Yorkley Coach Tours.” After a number of years running holiday and day trips from destinations in the forest, Willets has introduced an extensive programme with pickups from Mandy Moo’s and various other places in the Wye valley. Please call in for a brochure containing all the details.
So if you’re looking for somewhere healthy for lunch, an indulgent elevenses in a comfortable setting or some local information, call into Mandy Moo’s where Amanda is looking forward to seeing you soon….
