After a slight problem with one of the main courses, where the ravioli was substituted with another pasta, and it did it work at all, an alternative dish was soon delivered and enjoyed. Vegetarian/vegan options still seem to be a bit hit and miss regardless where you go. Everything was dealt with competently by the staff and resolved satisfactorily, so a good experience.

We had the A la Carte menu in the restaurant and were not disappointed. Great food and service at a very reasonable price (£114 for 2 for a three course meal and a few drinks). Would definitely eat / stay there again if the opportunity arose.

Another wonderful meal and excellent service. Atmosphere is not as good but it is obviously due to restrictions, restaurant looks bare and soulless and seeing staff in black masks isa bit off putting but we understand how difficult it is, hopefully it can get back to the wonderful way it was before soon. Are there any plans to allow non residents in for breakfast again? We used to enjoy coming in once a week, Mike’s full English is the best breakfast around!

Had a super lunch on Wednesday, delicious food and very professional staff. Couldn't fault it. Made us feel very special on our Anniversary. Apart from the masks which the poor staff had to wear, the other social distancing and safety precautions did not detract one bit from the lovey experience. Highly recommended. Well done all.

Thank you to Marie and Paul who looked after us exceptionally well as usual. Lovely meal and nice to see the Restaurant so busy (even if it was only because of "Eat out to help out")! Plaice beautifully cooked, as was the Pork Belly. Booked again for September, hope to see a slightly different menu by then as it is nice have variety; (as I am a Pescatarian I am usually limited to one fish or one vegetarian option on your menu, meaning we don't visit more often). Thanks again.

Long wait to be served. Confusion over drinks. Was told they had run out of a particular drink but asked again (a different member of staff) and it magically appeared.

I found the on line booking quite difficult. When entering a time onto the booking form, I kept on being diverted onto sites for your competitors which suggested you were full. I eventually was able to book the desired time, but on arrival found plenty of space. Quite off-putting.

We Had the smoked salmon and crayfish salad and I have to say it was the nicest thing I’ve eaten for a long time I was delighted the salad had not been adulterated with coriander! The Covid precautions were very good and gave me much confidence

The moat house as always been one of our favourite go to places we especially enjoy sunday afternoon there..the only reason we knocked a couple of stars of the atmosphere rating was due to it feeling different with the social distancing requirements..not the moat house fault but it definitely affected the atmosphere...Marie and Bradley as well as all the other staff looked after us in the very professional and friendly way they always do ...

Obviously a different experience in these awful times. I would normally give 5 stars all round. Not the fault of the Moat the atmosphere was not as normal and staff having to perform in unfamiliar roles. In the event the evening was much better than expected, the only problem being the staff wearing masks which is alien and my husband relies a lot on lip reading. The food was excellent as always and the staff friendly and helpful, particularly Marie the stand-in manager. We have waited all year to be able to come back here, having 2 previous bookings cancelled. It did not disappoint. I really hope that we will soon be able to come again under old normal conditions but whatever we shall certainly be back.
