Excellent food, well done as I felt sorry for the 2 chefs as it was busy. Our waitress was lovely and very friendly too.

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.

Everything was perfect and the food was excellent the only small negative was the music, it was awful and too loud not very relaxing at all, but the overall experience was very good and really impressed with the measures you have put in place to help stop the spread of covid-19.

I booked a table last minute and unfortunately all the restaurant tables were booked. The staff were kind enough to serve us the most fantastic restaurant food in the bar area. I can’t rate this establishment enough. 100% happy. Steve t

Excellent setting/atmosphere, nice to see that all precautions were taken, staff wearing masks, hand sanitiser availiable, distanced tables but it still felt like a treat to be there. 1st class staff and food was top notch as always, ended up having 3 courses instead of 1! Hoping to get married here in a few weeks and will definatley be back in the future!

The service was awful. We were waiting 15 minutes with the menu, waiting to order. Then at the end we were waiting 30 minutes for our bill to come after we asked for it. In that time we got up twice to ask for it. Thankfully the food was fantastic, couldn't fault that. However, we won't be coming again as the service was not terrible. 2 hours to eat lunch and a dessert!

As a regular customer at the Moat House, it was nice to be able to go back for Sunday lunch. The quality of food and service remains excellent, and represents a very pleasant afternoon dining with friends. I guess it has to be accepted, that during the current Covid situation, that the normal ambience of the restaurant is somewhat diminished. That is no fault of the restaurant, who have to be commended for reopening. In any event, if it remains open for business, we will certainly be back.

Lovely Sunday lunch at the Moat House. So nice to be back. A bit strange with all the Covid precautions but all worked very well and the food and service were fabulous. We will be back.
