Well I rang to say we didn’t want any dressings or sauces etc added to the sandwiches but the beef rolls the men had were added with mustard and blue cheese which none of them likes so spoilt it for them

The meal was excellent. There was a varied menu from which to choose and the dishes were well-presented and beautifully prepared. The service was professional, friendly and informative. Everyone in our group (4) enjoyed the whole dining experience and we are determined to repeat it, The prices may be somewhat higher than at other 'local' restaurants but the quality more that justified this.

The Moathouse restaurant is a wonderful place to eat. The food is second to none and is beautifully presented. On the night of our visit, the staff were both efficient and attentive. We are lucky to have such a special place on our doorstep.

This was our 3rd visit and not quite as good as the other 2. No-one took a drinks order and then the drinks took a long time to arrive. The choice of starters wasn’t particularly to our choice and the food felt a little more clumsy than previously. Overall though we had a very enjoyable time, staff were charming as usual and the food was very good. There a number of large parties in the restaurant and a wedding taking place at the same time

Service exemplary and Gourmet Menu food was fabulous ~ my steak was to die for. Only minor irritation was that the restaurant was quite cold and when I tried to bring my reservation forward by 45 minutes I was told we couldn’t accommodate because the restaurant was fully booked ~ but it was only half full all night. For the quality of food though value for money was superb. Would highly recommend.

Booked for 7.15 but after 8.00 we had to ask if we could go into the dining room from the bar. The bill was charged off the a la carte menu when we had the fixed price menu. The bill was corrected when we found out the incorrect charging after we had paid. Food and service was excellent.

removing the white table cloths has spoiled the luxurious effect of the restaurant. It was no better than a cheap beefeater pub with a children's play area **such a shame**. we used to come regularly for the fine dining experience but not any more.
