Everything was very good.
I have dined many times at the Moat House, and it has always been my favourite restaurant. However on this occasion, I was disappointed in the quality of the food. I had the turkey main course, which was of poor standard. the vegetables were under cooked, and the roast potatoes were not freshly cooked. The service was of high standard, as usual, and I was brought additional gravy on request. I had to ask for a glass to be re-washed, and the staff obliged. However, it should not have been dirty in the first place! All in all, not the best experience, and I hope this isn't a sign of things to come!
Excellent in everyway. Thankyou.x
Excellent food and service in a very pleasant atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Thank you to everyone who made our office lunch such a success. The food and service was excellent.
Good food and wine , service very good and liked having choice of two or three courses on Christmas Fayre menu .
Excellent experience, thank you.
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 ☹️
Fabulous afternoon tea in a lovely setting. Felt comfortable, relaxed and not rushed. Food was delicious and not too heavy. Loved the variety.
Excellent as usual.
A wonderful sense of occasion and a very nice dining experience
On behalf of my family and myself ,I would like to thank all the Staff at the Moat House for a lovely Sunday lunch and excellent service It’ is my favourite Restaurant and we shall definitely come again
We had the most lovely time with friends and the setting was perfect, even better than hoped. Thank you for the great food and lovely friendly service.
Love Grill Night and looking forward to it resuming in 2020. Excellent!
Had a gentleman’s afternoon tea it was fabulous plenty to pick at. Lovely afternoon and friendly staff.
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.
Lovely evening meal, attentive service, beautiful setting.
Lovely place and atmosphere, friendly and very pleasant staff can't do enough to help . Afternoon tea is a delightful experience the selections or tea is excellent. I highly recommend
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!
Overall a definite 9.75 out of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon A big "Thank You" to Thomas..our waiter, very attentive and courteous towards us. He is brilliant at forming swans out of foil for our take aways..... Thank You Moathouse..We will be back..Dee and Gordon.
