Generous portions, nice atmosphere

Ordered at the bar to eat outside (until the midges forced me back inside). Way more food than I needed! Nice location next to Neptune's Staircase.

Although we visited early on Valentine's Day evening, we went for meals from the standard bar meals menu. My girlfriend, who refers to The Moorings as her favourite place to eat in the area, had the steak pie, as usual. I decided on the Balmoral Chicken. We were attended by staff who were attentive, but not overpoweringly omnipresent. Great food,... More

The Moorings Hotel restaurant has both a bar restaurant and dining room, the food is over-priced and we found it too greasy for our liking. It is however, very pleasant for a drink and set in a nice location.

We liked the fact that we could choose between the formality of the dining room and the more casual atmosphere in the bar. Great menus in both

Moorings Hotel Restaurant is a bit old fashioned and probably attracts older customers mainly, but this doesn't mean it's not a nice place to have a coffee or meal. The location at the locks is perfect, there is ample parking space and coming back from a walk along the canal it's a lovely place to relax, while having a drink... More

Lovely friendly hotel, with excellent bar meals. We didn't have to wait long for our dinner, and it was excellent, the fish and chips and the rice pudding with plum sauce was to die for. Would return again on our next visit to Scotland.

Stayed in the Moorings recently and ate in the restaurant. Very good value in a relaxed atmosphere. Also had breakfast in the hotel and can recommend this.

This is a busy little hotel with lots of regular returning guests, so we were advised to book for dinner which we gladly did...Sadly the menu had been changed by the time we arried for dinner so we were somewhat limited to choice...We all had steak which i could not fault but changing the menu and not telling the guests...
