Friendly and helpful staff ( thanks for the ice !), good food - the pate was lovely, the game sausages were very good quality and the red wine sauce was clearly home made and good .... large portions at decent prices too..... all in a lovely location. Nice local beer too !

We didn't stay at the Half Moon but we did eat there on two consecutive nights during a trip to the Sheepwash area. The Inn was recommended by our landlady, a local, and we were amazed by the amount of choice on offer, including a good selection for vegetarians. Every dish that we ordered was well-cooked, nicely presented and generously... More

Visited Half Moon June 16th 2013 for Sunday lunch accompanied by a 'regular' who booked a table in advance. Although we were on time and only the second group to be seated it took a further 30 minutes to place our order, by which time many other groups were seated and being served. Then the meals arrived, I opted for... More

Stayed one night - single lady traveler - after 8 hour journey wanted a glass of wine and dinner - waited 1 hour 30 minutes for a meal - then gave up when I was told there was one person before me to be served - I had watched several people be given good service whilst I was ignored. Room... More

Stayed one night on our way to Cornwall (16th May) so my husband could fish. Average welcome when we arrived and not very helpful about the fishing. When my husband asked for a map of the river, he was told there was a map on the wall. The river was too high so my husband couldn't fish, which obviously wasn't... More

My husband was doing a weekend carpentry course in the area and so we stayed here with our 15 month old son. Our room was lovely and a cot was provided. All meals were really good and the staff were very helpful and attentive. I got lots of advice about places to visit during the day and Adam (our host)... More

Our second trip to this wonderful fishing Inn. Welcoming bar, friendly knowlegable staff, real support if you want to try fly fishing and the rooms and food were both very English and very good. Straight out of John Buchan but better.

Visited a few times with family and friends, never disappoints. Very good menu with something for everyone, lovely food, lovely staff and a really warm welcome bar area. A great local pub for a cold winter evening.

Stayed at Half Moon, Sheepwash over Easter. The decor is typical of a country Inn, log fire etc. We were situated in the Annexe which, although it was ideal for us with an elderly dog, is a little tired. But, nevertheless, very clean and there is tea/coffee making facilities in the room together with biscuits, which is a nice touch.... More

Have just returned from Sunday Lunch at the Half Moon Inn and have to say that this is probably one of the very best that we have had in the area. A warm and friendly welcome on arrival was swiftly followed by drinks in hand at the bar and then guidance to our table in the restaurant area. Here the... More
