Absolutely Fabulous

Fabulous food (especially the selection of puddings), backed up by efficient and friendly service. Very good value for money. We are already looking forward to our next visit. It`s essential to book for dinner as this little gem of a restaurant tucked away in the High St is very popular!

Great food and service, good value for money. Lovely part of the world although the restaurant is a little tucked away. Well worth seeking out!

Lovely venue with friendly staff. The fish soup and sea bass was delicious, obviously all home made of very good quality ingredients! My only complaint is I didn't have room for pudding! Shame they don't let dogs in as I'd eat there a lot more often.

We knew how great the desserts are at The Moorings so we went straight into the main course, My husband had the Steak... More

Booked late in the day & they bent over backwards to fit 4 adults, a teenager & 8 year old twins in on a busy Easter week at this perfectly decorated small restaurant. The service, atmosphere and range & quality of food and drink was excellent! The fish was fresh & delicious. I would imagine that this restaurant would suit... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. Arrived at a busy time but we weren't kept waiting for long. Couldn't resist the lamb on the menu - it was beautiful and tasty. We made dessert choices and enjoyed a gorgeous crumble with custard!

It gets very busy. I'm happy our hotel had advised us to book. We had a lovely dinner, wish more of the local seafood had been featured on the menu, though. Where were the oysters and crab beyond the dressed crab salad that everybody serves? We chose two fish main dishes and shared a wonderful apple and rhubarb crumble with... More

Terrific food and excellent food/ We loved the locally caught fish/sea food. The wine list was good, and we were delighted to find Elysium dessert wine Definitely the place for a great dinner if you are staying in Blakeney.I wish we lived nearer so we could go easily again.

A special evening for a family meal and The Moorings did not let us down. The menu was superb with many interesting seafood choices and options for vegetarians. Both the starters and the mains were very tasty, with good portions that were not overwhelming. Which is just as well as the puddings were divine. Staff were friendly and efficient whilst... More
