We had an excellent meal in nice surroundings. However, it took 50 minutes for our starter to arrive and we saw others being served who had arrived after us.

Superb afternoon tea. Extremely good quality food and we were able to take some home too as we couldn't eat it all. Lovely treat for our wedding anniversary!

Food very pretentious! We ordered soup so they brought a bowl with some sort of curried blob in it then the waitress has to pour the soup in at the table! It’s the moathouse not some swanky place in London!

Firstly I would like to point out that we had an excellent Sunday lunch and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely meal out in Staffordshire. The only reason for reducing the star rating is because the camembert from the cheese board was tasteless. It may sound petty but when you have to pay a £3 supplement for the cheeseboard it should be top notch. Other than this the food, drink, atmosphere and service was excellent.

Super food , good buzz in the restaurant and on the whole very attentive staff. Had to pour our own wine several times which isn’t a problem but sometimes the staff do and other times they’ll walk past and not notice so just a little bit inconsistent and both me and my wife wish all the tables had tablecloths on, just seems a bit bare without them although some tables did have them. Overall though an excellent Sunday lunch

We were invited to celebrate my birthday by having a meal at the Moat House and if we accepted then we would get a free bottle of prosecco as a birthday gift from all at The Moat House. Gladly accepted. Had a wonderful 3 course dinner which was absolutely superb. Food was fantastic, service was excellent as usual. Thank you to everyone at The Moat House for making my birthday that extra bit special. Very much appreciated.

The staff serving us with afternoon tea were very professional, helpful and courteous. We were made very welcome from when we were greeted on arrival right up to leaving. The food was delicious and well presented and the one person in the party who is lactose intolerant also had wonderful food.

Great Food Great Service great value for money. Only 4 tables occupied. Not sure why we were put together in the far corner of the dining room with two other groups of guests. It was a little crowded.
