We booked through your website for Sunday lunch for a celebration and invited friends to join us from Tunbridge Wells. Despite confirmation of the booking and two reminder e mails, you were shut! I cannot understand why you would have a website continuing to take bookings particularly as this was the first weekend the pubs opened after lockdown. So disappointing and what a waste of our time.

How can I rate my experience when I arrived at The Half Moon at my appointed time of 7-30pm to find the place in darkness and locked up. If you can send me emails to confirm my reservation a day ahead and now an email to rate my experience why no email or indeed a phone call to inform me of the cancellation.

Nice food but very small portions! Extremely over priced. Worsened by the fact that they didn’t give me my change back! There are other pubs in the area doing extremely good gastro food and much much cheaper. Wouldn’t recommend and will not be returning.

Fabulous food in a pub with rooms and a restaurant. Very cosy pub in the lovely village of Kirdford. There are public footpaths for walkers if you do indulge, which is difficult not to given the seasonal menu and delicious food. We visited for the 2nd time Introducting different friends as we are so impressed with the Half Moon. Looking forward to returning again especially in the better weather as there is a decent garden with seating. Also we had a coffee on arrival and this is also a very decent blend. Thanks to all the staff.

Food was nice, but my husband and I are both vegan. There is only one offer on dinner menu that is Vegan, and while it was nice would be great for some other options.

We came to the Half Moon for my Husbands Birthday, and were totally wowed by everything about the day. Wine was superb, meal was off the scale, the chef even bought my desert out himself, decor so warm and inviting, we will definitely be back, we loved it.

Drink service a little slow. Maybe could have benefitted from a drinks list as server not 100% confident on range available. Host was wonderful, liked the touch of the birthday card on the table and the chef coming to table to discuss the starters. Food was fabulous.

Whilst the pub had a good atmosphere, it was quite noisy, so at times when talking to one another we could not hear each other at the table! The food is very small in portions maybe a little larger in size would help with the pubs attraction during the week.
