Food and drinks were great and the atmosphere was lovely however service was really poor, when we arrived we said we had a booking for 1pm and got pointed in the direction of our table however the table wasn’t laid up we had to do it ourselves as stuff didn’t seemed interested in helping us push tables together and find a 7th chair as there was only space for 6 when we had booked for 7. We tried to catch attention for drinks as wasn’t told you had to get drinks at the bar so we just assummed you go to the bar yourself to get drinks which took about 15 minutes to come? And then when ordering food again took ages to catch the staffs attention to order, and it wasn’t a busy lunch time. Apart from the poorest service we’ve ever had as staff seemed more interested in chatting to one another. Everything else was excellent, but I’m sorry the staff was such a let down! I’ve worked in hospitality myself this was not okay. Hopefully this is just a one off and the next time we come service will be a lot better. Thankyou anyway guys!

We attended for a work Xmas do, and all had a fantastic time. The bar was lively and the food was brilliant, which is not something you can often say about a Xmas do! The only negative feedback I could give is that one dish was served slightly cold, however the attentive waiting staff did not hesitate to sort this out for us straight away. Thank you all for such a great night, we will be back.

Christmas party booking for a large number of people. Paid £120 deposit which wasn’t taken off the bill, also 15% early bird wasn’t taken off either which I had to ask for both of these to be done. Probably just hoping we were too drunk to notice and end up paying double. We gladly paid a 12.5% service charge despite service being incredibly slow and the tables were so sticky it was disgusting. We were asked to move along for another party to come in which we happily did, until the manager came over again several minutes later to ask for 3 of our chairs despite them accepting a lot of walk in customers. Wouldn’t have minded but we had already spent £300+ on food and probably £200-300 worth in alcohol at the point and wanted to continue as we were enjoying ourselves. After all, it’s not our fault that you can’t organise your reservations vs walk in ratio. The staff were incredibly rude to us so, I would highly recommend going elsewhere. There is no care and is literally just a cash cow. The food was nothing to rave about, very slow.

Considering how understaffed they were and how many people where in the moose they did a fantastic job. We booked for 11 people to have a Christmas meal. The manager was completely rushed off her feet as well as the bar staff. We had to wait a long time for each course. No blame to the staff at all though. You need to just hire more people and stop over working your current employees

Can't fault the Sunday roast, but unfortunately there just isn't enough staff on to keep service under control. We waited ages for our food and quickly worked out it was quicker to get up and go to the bar then order drinks at our table. If you could add numbers to the existing great staff, it would be 5*

We did the prosecco brunch, which was a great deal and the service was very friendly, down to earth and professional. The food was great. We just had burgers and chips but next time will try the roasts because the ones on the table next to us looked amazing.

Booked for a leaving do. The staff were really helpful and catered to our needs. Was quite busy in there and it did take quite a while to get served at the bar, but food and service was really good.
