Stopped here for lunch to break our journey. What a good decision it was. Charming country pub with excellent host. Food was a cut above standard pub grub and beer was well kept. Service good chatty without being intrusive. Interesting menu included faggot pie. Would definitely visit again if in the area. Note closed on Mondays.

Both meals were plentiful,cooked extremely well and all within a nice environment/atmosphere. I would and have already recommended this to friends and colleagues.... More

After hearing the inn was under new management, the wife and I decided to try it. We were greeted with a smile and given a warm welcome by the bar staff. The food, we were told was locally sourced as much as possible. (thankfully no frozen chips) The meals came and were well presented on the plate and were very... More

We visited the Half Moon Inn on a Saturday evening and the pub was busy but not heaving.. Staff were friendly and attentive and the food choice was very good from the main menu, the children's menu and from the 'Specials' board. The food was plentiful hot and well cooked and the children's portions were of a decent size. There... More
