We’ve visited the Moat House too many times to remember. The food was as usual excellent. However we did not get the normal level of service. No idea why as the restaurant was not very busy. Normally we are shown to our table with menus, including drinks menu. This didn’t happen. About 20 minutes later we were asked if we wanted to see menus etc! All of the food and drinks we had were excellent but there was no interaction with the staff to see how we were and to pour our wine. So lovely meal but no attention to the detail we are used to!!!

Perfect, right up to the moment after I settled the bill, when I found out that I should have asked for my loyalty card to be activated in order to gain the associated credits. Apparently not possible once the payment has been made! Pity ☹️

As usual, meal was lovely and probably the best chips we have had in a long while! We had the early door menu with a side of chips. The beef was great and the Hake beautiful. The service was excellent. One if our best visits, although they are usually good.

The atmosphere was all in the bar, we had chosen an evening of low bookings for your restaurant, however that did not detract from the excellent table service and the skill of your chef, all superb.

We use you from time to time to meet up with family as you are halfway between both. Had various do’s in the past and been very happy. This time service was extremely slow we felt as if we had been forgotten at times! Maybe not enough staff to cope with busy times or more training needed!

Lovely Sunday lunch but the service was very poor, waiting an hour for main meal and not offered a drink apart from water for over an hour too. Coffee was full of coffee bits and had to be returned

We have dined at The Moat House many times over the last 30 years and always had a good experience. We had no worries about recommending you to people or bringing friends and relatives. Yesterday you let yourselves down. The service was appallingly slow and my chicken was overcooked. The vegetables were put at places where meals had not been served and two portions were so late the main meal had almost been eaten! I did not complain about my chicken until the waitress removed my plate because I did not wish to wait any further before getting something to eat. I just left it. There was no reduction to the price of the meal and to add insult, you then charged me for my hot water. I’m afraid I will not be recommending your restaurant to anyone anymore. You are only as good as your last meal!
