Every Saturday Night in the Moat House restaurant is Gourmet Dining Night. A delectable 6 course menu served from 7pm
We had a booking for a taster dining experience at 7.15 and arrived at 7 in order to have a drink first. We were shown directly to our table, ordered a cocktail and a bottle of wine, but by 7.30 our drinks had not arrived. The first course was served and we had not had a drink. The restaurant was chilly; there seemed to be a draught and I had to put my coat back on. It warmed up later, however. The waiter was very pleasant, but lacked knowledge of the food and drinks. The food was very good, as always, however we were disappointed in the service on this occasion.
Service was slow which is very unusual
Food and drinks were excellent. Really enjoyed the Christmas Afternoon Tea .
Christmas lunch for 4 in the restaurant. Everyone enjoyed the meal but only had 2 courses as we were too full for dessert so just had coffee and mince pie. Service excellent as usual. Have been coming for Christmas meal for years and expect to be back next year!
We meet regularly at The Moat House and certainly up to usual standard yesterday. Staff team worked well together and the food was delicious. The Christmas decorations always Classy! We do have some difficulty with background noise.
My Wife and I had an excellent meal on Saturday. The staff were very accommodating to meet our requirements.
Very friendly & efficient staff. It is a pleasure to visit.
All as expected...superb meal and service
Such a lovely meal yesterday evening. Thank you.
You have a very beautiful setting, but I think the bar area looked very tired, could do with a lift. Xmas decorations in the bar also looked tired old and cheap. Much better in conservatory though.
The food was wonderful but we felt the service let it down last night. Very slow and not checked on to see if food was ok. Also had to remind staff that we had ordered a bottled of Prosecco. Will come again as it’s usually much better but disappointed last night especially as it was for my sons birthday.
