We had a great evening, the staff were knowledgeable and attentive and the food was amazing. I ate things I had no idea that I could (fireweed) and in combinations that were a delight. Your business is a credit to you and I'm very glad you are on my doorstep.

A real experience of gorgeous food and wine. Service discrete and informative of dishes and wine sublimely paired in the tasting menu. A very welcoming and warm vibe through out the pub and restaurant. A fresh and exciting menu in a beautiful setting with great staff and an excellent Chef. Better than the Fat Duck.

A wonderful and memorable meal. Imaginative and innovative menu full of delights and surprises - highly recommended. And a word of praise for the young waiting staff - they are enthusiastic, knowledgable and helpful.

Second visit and the Moorcock goes from strength to strength. The most interesting dishes I've had this year and perfectly executed. Go for the recommended wine pairings if you can because they are perfect for the food and you're unlikely to taste anything similar elsewhere. All staff really know their stuff and not afraid to give advice and voice an opinion. Amy: The big Austrian red I mentioned is called 'Das Phantom' from K+K Kirnbauer. It would go really well with the Venison Ragout.

Really lovely people - welcoming and warm personalities work here. Nice touch with a signed birthday card for my husband at the end of the meal. Three of us ate in the restaurant - set taster menu. Really unusual and delicious dishes although some were a little too heavy on the salt for us. Having said that I would definitely recommend eating here.

A unique and flavourful dining experience with friendly, welcoming service. It’s our second visit and the only reason we don’t go more frequently is the distance from our home. It takes two and a half to three hours to get there but it’s so good it’s worth the trip. We will keep returning now we’ve discovered it and recommend it constantly to others. Our favourite restaurant by a long way.
