About The Moorcock Inn
Country pub & restaurant overlooking Norland Moor. Utilising local and homegrown produce, cooked over charcoal. Natural wines, local and Belgian beers.
Our first visit to the restaurant at our new "local" having moved here in March. We wanted to try the food before the temp closure, and we were blown away by the flavour of the dishes. We are keen cooks and often we are underwhelmed because we could have made the food we eat at restaurants. However we certainly could not have cooked the food you made for us. It was simply delicious, unusual dishes. The experience of trying all those different ingredients was one of best eating experiences we have ever had. Hopefully you will be back when the time is right, best of luck to you all
Always excellent service and food. One of our favourite places to visit.
Our visit on your last day (for now) was as amazing as ever. Each and every one of the waiting staff are fantastic. Knowledgeable, polite, attentive. A true credit to you all. The food last night was pretty impressive and the crab dish to die for. Thank you for always making us feel welcome and remembering us each time we visit. We can't wait to come back again when conditions allow but in the meantime we'll see you for takeaways. Sending you all the very best of luck as you navigate the future.
Fab location, fab food, fab staff - a real foodie’s paradise!
Shame they have to close for a few weeks had a wonderful meal at their last service for a while.
Still one of THE best places to eat in the North. Wonderful staff and the food was outstanding as always. We’re already looking forward to the reopening. See you as soon as possible.
A truly incredible evening, excellent food, excellent service. I can't recommend the Moorcock highly enough.
We love this place. Everything about it is wonderful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend
We came to the Moorcock on a recommendation of a couple of friends. Seasonally themed menu was excellent. Really interesting and challenging flavours. Only one minor quibble – a couple of the courses were a little too salty for our taste (and we like salt!) The restaurant itself is warm, relaxing and tasteful. We loved the ceramic table wear which is all created on site. The service was without fault.
Fantastic food, great service and cosy ambiance
From the very friendly welcome to the well fed goodbye, we were made to feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. Being so dog friendly also a huge bonus. Working within customer service for over 25 years it is all down to the staff. Every member of your team were genuinely helpful and attentive. Can definitely see why customers come from miles to experience your establishment. Plus the food is pretty darn excellent too!!
Love it here.
The best meal we could have by far... always! Enjoy the new direction this strange world has taken you, we will keep an eye out for the amazing things you’ll have to offer and an even closer eye on your announcement to re-open. Best wishes Katie and Dan
Fabulous natural cooking, thank you for a wonderful meal! Hope to see you again very soon, once the clouds pass.
Great evening as always, friendly staff, delicious food
We’ve been to the Moorcock several times since opening and every time it’s been a wonderful experience. The flavours created by clever combinations of carefully sourced produce make for moments of sheer pleasure. The staff were attentive yet unobtrusive. Able to answer questions about the food having tasted it themselves was a real help. I definitely recommend the moorcock for a real treat but I warn you the flavours aren’t for the faint hearted.
Can't wait for you to resume some sort of normal service (and looking forward to hampers!)
Delicious as always! Best wishes in all you do in these uncertain times and we look forward to eating with you again when you re-open Jenny & Tony x
Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten
outstanding food, looking forward to returning once they're open again!
The Moorcock is my favourite place to eat because their food is consistently delicious and innovative, the people who work there are all absolutely delightful and the building is beautiful and in such a wonderful place. I can’t wait for them to open again.
Another great lunch, really imaginative and innovating cooking! Can't wait to go back I really love the Moorcock
We had a lovely time! The food was incredible, great selection of drinks and the service was amazing - never been disappointed here!
Great food lovely service safely executed and lovely afternoon out
