A lovely Sunday lunch. Perfect quantity. Charming staff who managed to rustle up a bottle of Provence rose not on the menu. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

After all the recommendations we expected more. The food was interesting but simply not good enough for the prices charged. One of our party ordered a steak which was tough and inedible. Such a disappointing meal.

Disappointing visit. A couple of guests very clearly requested a 'mini roast' for their main course as this was available. However they were given a standard adult portion. When we questioned this we were told that we should have requested a child's roast. This is not how it is described on the menu and if that's the case why didn't the waitress advise or question the order when it was placed? Food was wasted and we were charged for it. Service was slow and despite the waiting staff efforts to provide a restaurant style service where they know what has been ordered by each person this was not consistent and looked sloppy. Would have been better to have not tried and just asked when they approached the table who was having what. Roast beef was quite tough too. Really disappointed will not return

Booked on Line no mention that fixed price menu was not available for our booking only informed when I requested that menu when we arrived. Food choices were good but very slow service due to staffing levels and very busy, obvious training of new staff obviously didn’t help. I had lamb advertised as with fondant potatoes had a substitute of two small new potatoes and no mention of the change. I do think when ordering from the al a cart menu some vegetables should be included. Our previous visits have felt more special and good. Value due to ordering from the fixed price menu which we intended to do for our anniversary lunch which I put on the booking but no acknowledgement on the day. I would suggest that if fixed price menus are not available it should brought to the attention when booking. And also should be considered when taking bookings how many staff are on duty.

We went with our family on Easter Sunday, weather was perfect , we where sat in the garden. Everything about the half moon is perfect, the staff food , location everything!! Front of house is so attentive, they are so welcoming each time we have been. The food is delicious, from starters to main to puddings. I could eat here everyday. The Taylor family love this place and will be back. Thank you.
