The plate thatt came out was not just big it was HUGE. Two course for £16 three courses for £20. The mussel starter was a... read more

We came here for lunch on a rainy Sunday afternoon. This pub is a family run and very friendly staff and a kids attraction. My son didn't like anything on the menu and they dealt with the situation very quickly and well but when our dish came the meat got cold very quickly.

We had a fantastic dinner date at the Half moon last night!! Our food was delicious and looked amazing! The dining areas were delightful and the atmosphere was fantastic. The staff were very helpful and the landlord/lady were very friendly. What's better is that the pub is child and dog friendly. We will defiantly be going back soon!

Having mistaken my Stokes recently (when I got confused between Stoke St Gregory and Stoke St Mary) I thought that after 20 years or so I ought to revisit this pub, especially bearing in mind the other great reviews. We arrived at 7:30 on a Thursday evening and apart from a few drinkers at the bar there didn't seem to... More

Had a fantastic Sunday lunch here on 23rd August. Spoilt for choice with the menu as could have had all of it! The roast beef was perfectly cooked (rare) and came with a really interesting mix of vegetables (roast squash & carrots, beetroot, peas, cabbage & samphire) instead of the boring selection you get with a roast at most places....

The Half Moon is now a decent place to eat out, in my opinion. I ate here on Saturday night and I really enjoyed myself. It was the first time I've been, but I did hear that it was awful a couple of years ago. It seems the new owners have done a good job in turning it around. I... More
