Good for a bar meal and the beer is excellent, however the pub is let down by the toilets which are smelly, there are cotton towels to dry your hands and there was no toilet paper or hand wash in the ladies, appalling and although I told the bar lady the problem was not dealt with...... Not good at all

Rather than drive straight home to Cheshire we decided to have dinner at the Moorcock Inn which advertised on a sign outside the pub "Food served all day". We entered the pub at 17.35 and my husband went to the bar to order the drinks. When he asked for the menu he was told rather brusquely that food was not... More

Visited here with my husband and a couple of friends. Service was good and the food was absolutely delicious. Couldn't fault it. I had whitebait which was to die for and the most gorgeous game casserole. Didn't have room for a dessert. The wine was delicious too.

After a great stay this time last year, my Partner and I returned to The Moorcock for another January weekend break, taking advantage of the winter three-for-two bed and breakfast offer. We were planning a weekend of walking, taking advantage of the pub being only 20 minutes walk from Garsdale train station. Therefore on the Friday we took a superb... More

I used the Moorcock for an overnight stay arriving late at night. I was shown to a clean well furnished room with en-suite and had a good nights sleep followed by an excellent full English breakfast. Exactly what I wanted! Run by a lovely friendly couple and very welcoming. Will certainly be going back.

Just back from a couple of nights at the moorcock inn. Very friendly pub with rooms. We stayed in the wensleydale family room (me, my husband and our dog. ) comfy bed, great shower and clean. The food was fantastic- breakfast and evening meal delicious- lots of choice including good veggie options. Our dog was made very welcome. I can't... More

I have been using the Moorcock on and off for about 5 years and it's now gone downhill so far it's unlikely to recover unless someone new comes along, throws a lot of money at it and sacks the staff especially the cooking ones. Not a great atmosphere any more, the food which always was good could now be better.... More

It's difficult to respond to this as there is nothing particularly targeted in this review. All I can say is I'm sorry you were disappointed by your time here and I can only wish you had mentioned any if your issues at the time. We have not had anyone leave negatively or with any unhappy comments so I know nothing... More

Stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed it so booked an overnight stay to break the journey from Devon to Scotland to visit family. On going upstairs to our room there was an awful odour of air freshener mixed with what we have since discovered by reading other reviewers was eau de cat. The stair and landing carpet needed...

I'm so confused by this review as you were so nice both during your stay and on departure. When my waitress asked you if your stroganoff was okay your response was "well I shouldn't have ordered it really as I don't like mustard"! I remember this so well as it was an odd thing to order with mustard being traditionally... More

Six of us stayed overnight whilst walking Wainwright's Pennine Journey, a 247 mile long distance walk. The bar area is very much "Country Inn", very comfortable with big sofa's to lounge in or normal tables. I liked this. Service was very much "take it or leave it" style from the two proprietors but was not objectionable. My friends Geoff and... More

This inn is budget priced therefore I didn't expect luxury. Upon arrival our party was shown to our rooms. Climbing the stairs we were asked if we objected to cats as theirs stayed on the staircase and at this point met the cat. We are not cat people and the cat was removed for the duration of our stay, the... More
