Great place, Great food

We visit Leamington on a regular basis to visit our son who is at Warwick Uni. The Moorings is a brilliant venue. The ambience of the place is excellent, it's got great atmosphere and seems to attract people of various ages. The menu is very good with something to tempt every palate. The men had... read more

The Moorings is in a good location and the welcome from the staff was excelent. They are very professional and attentive, without being intrusive. The food was thouroughly enjoyed by all of us. Ther was a good choice and it was well presented and very tasty. They were also serving great 'Real Ales' which is a big bonus in my... More

We go there for a meal for special occasions as quite pricey. Love the atmosphere and have a favourite table. The sauce was so tasty on my meal I had to ask for bread to soak the final drops up. The waiter said the chef would be delighted as it showed appreciation of his work. Love our Sunday evening drink... More

Bar & Waiting staff we're super friendly with barman explaining a few of the beers to me and even suggested what he thought was right for me. We we're told to sit outside we could be... More

We had just finished a three day holiday in Shropshire and we broke the journey home to get something to eat and saw the Moorings out of the car window. How lucky was that! It is in a lovely location right on the canal, OK the road runs across the top nearby but it is hardly distracting. We received a... More

We've dined at the Moorings on a number of occasions and it's never failed to deliver. Attractive and inviting location by the canal. Advisable to book in advance even for midweek lunch. It's popular for the simple reason it's so good. The food today compelled me to post this report. We ordered both starters and main dishes from the 'specials'... More

Visited for lunch on account of the positive reviews. Calamari to start, ever a favourite. Alas, where was the culinary adventurism? The squid ink aioli was only ostensibly interesting: colourful indeed, but entirely destitute of taste. Where was the intense garlicky flavour that makes for a great aioli?! This starter needs a kick to be more exciting... fly the nest.... More

Stopped by for an impromptu lunch with a neighbour who is a coeliac. At first glance we thought the lunch menu would be a problem, but how wrong could we have been. They can make all the sandwich options with gluten free bread, also included was the soup and amazingly gluten free chips which are cooked in a separate fryer.... More
