We were staying at the campsite across the road and found out we had a pub opposite. Happy days!! The owner recommend we go as it had recently been taken over and the present people had only been in 3 months. We went over first for a sneaky drink then decided to go back for tea. We received a very... More

It is not often you can rate a pub purely on its burger and chips, but having visited The Half Moon with a couple of friends last night we all left saying the burger was the best we had had in a long time! Not an easy feat considering how much one of my friends likes his food! The burger... More

We were staying in our caravan just opposite the pub and were recommended to try the steak by the campsite owner. We decided to meet with family for a meal on the Saturday evening and were not disappointed. All five of us had steaks and they were all excellent, tasty and cooked to perfection including my son’s who likes his... More

What a lovely pub! A warm welcome, great atmosphere and lovely food. Good vegetarian options, try the veggie burger, clearly homemade, flavoursome without being over-spiced and good chips too. Plenty of room for a larger party, the new management is clearly food focused and it is well worth a visit.

We wanted a relaxing lunch in a country pub we hadn't been to before, and this fitted the bill perfectly. The menu is short, but everything is freshly cooked and according to the chef it changes almost daily - such a change from extensive menus where everything comes out of the freezer and microwave! My friend had the smoked salmon... More

Four of us had Sunday roast in the Half Moon today ... the new management's first day providing food. The generous portion of beef was delicious, as was the homemade Yorkshire pudding. Very pleasant staff. I can see us going back frequently!
