A fabulous experience, hugely attentive staff, including a card and signed menu from the team, plus a list if bread my god daughter had coveted!! Cannot thank or recommend the team enough, :)

I had been looking forward for a long time to eating here and it did not disappoint. If anything it exceeded my expectations (the 24hr oven cooked goose was an absolute highlight). The whole ethos and dining approach here really focuses on the food: the quality ingredients and the skill in turning it into something of a journey. If only more places could do this in such an equally unpretentious and relaxed way....we will be back.

Our first time with you following a recommendation from our son-in-law, we really enjoyed our lunch, very different menu, with a wide range of different tastes which we all enjoyed. Happily recommend and will be visiting again soon.

We stumbled across a short update on Jay Rayner’s review. As a local I’ve been coming to the Moorcock for many years but didn’t know about this latest venture. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and were impressed with the quality and presentation of every course. My only problem was the height of the chair. I could have done with a kiddy block for my feet :) Well done to the hosts. I’ll be bringing my friends soon.

Amazing food- the pickles and the smoked fish in particular were great. We bought plates to bring home (crockery not food). Can't wait to come again.

The food is outstanding, the staff knowledgeable and friendly, setting is perfect and relaxing. The only reason I would hesitate to recommend is because our service took 3.5 hours and so I would warn of that. I think the big groups maybe pushed our food back a bit, the wait between courses was quite significant and staff were either serving or waiting in the kitchen area so we found it a bit hard to catch someone to ask for the bill. Having said that we really really enjoyed the food, such high quality, like works of art! The flavours were incredible, I really can't rate the food highly enough. We will definitely come back (if I haven't burned my bridges with the timing comment) thank you.

We had a wonderful evening. Staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Food was absolutely delicious. Best dish was celeriac in beeswax with ricotta. Absolutely sublime! We live in Oxfordshire, so can’t return regularly, but we WILL return!

We had a wonderful time. The service was superb and your staff’s knowledge about what they were serving us was impeccable. They didn’t hesitate to answer all our probing (and often silly) questions about what was on our plate. And how it had been cooked. This brought the experience to life for us. The food was excellent - compliments to the chef. And the wine list was equally as brilliant (and at such reasonable prices compared to what we see the same bottles for in London). Thank you very much for such a wonderful time. Good luck for 2020 - we’ll certainly to coming back!
