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

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.
