Although the food was very good we found the menu choices rather limited for people who like relatively simple food. The dessert was outstanding.

Would be advisable to warn future customers of the road closure when taking bookings so as to avoid late arrivals.

Excellent meal and service. Gourmet menu on a Saturday night offers a good variety of choices. Only one small point, hand cut chips with the steak were tasteless, but everything else was thoroughly enjoyable

My husband and I were having dinner for our 50th wedding anniversary, everything was absolutely perfect. The staff were very attentive and polite, nothing was too much trouble. Our food was absolutely delicious, I was particularly impressed with my lamb dish. Thank you for making our evening special.

Had your grill night menu... Food and service are excellent.. two comments.. 1) describing it as two courses is a bit of stretch.. bread and butter isn't really a course it's an accompaniment? 2) nice to have toothpicks available with so many meaty courses..🤔 Regards..Glenn

We had a lovely experience whilst visiting the Moat House. Our afternoon tea exceed our expectations and it was even better that we were able to take some home when we were unable to finish it all! There was a wide selection of teas to choose from and it was great that we were given a free glass of Prosecco because it was a Wednesday. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I visited The Moat House on 7th August along with 3 friends for the Ladies Afternoon ofTea and Prosecco. We were pleasantly greeted by cheerful staff who our party led us through to be seated in the Conservatory which was a Large light airy room. The atmosphere was great... Lots of chitter chatter by fellow diners. A member of staff talked us through the selection of teas available. The food was extremely good, a lovely selection of sandwiches which were very fresh, also a generous selection of cakes. The staff were attentive, polite and friendly. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the Afternoon Tea Experience. We all agreed that it was extremely good dand that we would definitely return/reccomend this experience to friends and family. Thank you Moat House Team. Rene

We did expect to have a tablecloth on the table for a supposedly 4AA starred restaurant!! The restaurant was chosen for a birthday celebration. The food was average with some dishes extremely small. A little disappointing.
