So visited this weekend for a lovely meal. The food was phenomenal and something expected from a top class restaurant. I cannot recommend it enough. I've eaten in many establishments worldwide and this burger is the best I've had in my life with bacon that is incredible and crispy on the side. It actually beat planet Hollywood.

The staff were friendly, efficient and accommodating. They have a play area which the children enjoyed. They are dog friendly, not that I have a dog but I do like them, so that was good to see. The selections for Sunday lunch were a bit sparse, could do with a few more options. I had the pork which was moist,... More

we have been going to the half moon on and off for years, but have been avoiding it recently due to a poor experience about 2 years ago. But we went today to find new people (been there 4 months) and pleased to say it's back on the way up. Really nice lunch in beer garden with attentive staff. Worth... More

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.
