Wow! What an amazing experience. The staff were very knowledgeable on both food and drink. The ambiance was very relaxed, which made for a very enjoyable evening with friends. The food was up there with the best I’ve ever had. The taster menu gave us a great opportunity to try things we ordinarily never would. One of our party was vegetarian and gluten free and was as equally well catered for.

Amazing experience at The Moorcock Inn. Beautiful location, friendly environment, service top notch. I can’t find a word to describe the food, it was just fantastic. A real taste experience using local produce. The tasting menu left us completely full. A visit here is a must. Thank you so much

This was our second visit to the Moorcock. Every part of visit was excellent; the waiting staff were friendly and had a great knowledge of the menu’s preparation and ingredients. Superb homemade bread and butter to start a tasting menu which was exceptional value. The menu included local foraged herbs and plants and unusual ingredients like dogfish which was perfectly cooked. This is a restaurant for people who really appreciate excellent food, great service and a very relaxed atmosphere. See you again soon.

Super evening. Lovely staff who explained every course and are obviously passionate about what they are doing. Will definitely revisit especially as there is a super circular walk nearby and the pub is dog friendly.

An excellent place to dine - lovely food, with variety, intrigue and great taste. The staff are so friendly and their passion for what they offer is infectious. A great atmosphere to dine in - warming and cosy, yet with plenty of space between the tables.

I eat lot of dinners. I remember very few of them. This meal will however live long in the memory - especially as I keep telling people about it. Fresh, original, surprising, delicious food served by lovely, genuine people. If I had to criticise something it would be that the pork scratchings we bought on leaving weren't as crunchy as they looked but that's easy to forgive given the outstanding dining experience. Thanks!

We thought the food was incredibly awesome and inventive and, for what it was, very reasonably priced. We thought the crisp crepe thing with the trout was really inventive, and also the soft cakey thing that was the second dessert, and the flavour of the Angelika ice cream was really really interesting. Great service, with lots of knowledge of the food.

This is the third tasting menu I've enjoyed at Moorcock Inn and whether it's been for two, four or six guests the services has never slipped from being friendly knowledgeable and attentive. I'm delighted that the menu changes with the seasons as its been a fantastic way of enjoying a variety of food that has been foraged and grown and then thoughtfully put together.
