Have been here on numerous special occasions and the food exceeds expectations every time. Whether attending as a couple, family or larger group on the huge table upstairs the service is extremely attentive. Lovely setting next to the canal, great for having a drink outside in the summer. Menu often changes, with a specials menu too. Quite pricey, but well,... More

3rd time to The Moorings and I came away with very mixed feelings about the night. To start with the positives, the welcome was excellent & my mum who requires assistance walking was made to to feel very comfortable. The menu choice is very good and we booked this restaurant because they'll do half size portions for children. My food... More

Food great. Lovely location. First visit (June 2012) was aborted as they didn't start serving dinner until past 6pm and we needed to move our canal barge! Second visit was good so we returned a third time. Steps to most proper tables were awkward for my elderly father-in-law.

Love this place, only downsides are location accessibility and small outdoor area. Other than that excellent food, well priced and in a lovely decorated pub

Mum and I have been a couple of times for lunch. Today the service was excellent. The girl who looked after us was super. Service was also fast enough for a quick lunch. The only issue we had was that the steak in the steak sandwich was very very rare. I don't mind but pointed out that others might. My... More

Took family and my dad for Father's day. My wife noticed that they had Gammon Steak on the web sute menu and we thought that Dad would like it, so the table was booked. We got there at opening time and in a pleasant manner taken immediately to our table. Place was clean and the waitress was friendly. However when... More

Have eaten here many times - with work, socially - and it is never less than good. Great beer on tap and varied menu. It's not cheap but you get the quality you pay for. Can be busy at times which just adds to the atmosphere.

First time to the Moorings, and I've lived in the area for over 10yrs. I was a tad disappointed to be honest. The service was excellent, no complaints to the front of house. It was the food that let it down. It wasn't fresh, it wasn't inventive and it certainly wasn't worth the money. Maybe they were having an off... More
