Excellent restaurant

My husband and I have eaten here three times now; twice for lunch and once for dinner. Each time this very busy restaurant has served up excellent food and service. I would really recommend eating here but it is best to book because of its popularity.

Been wanting to try this place for awhile due to reviews. Unfortunately the acoustics are bad and the place is small. On this night at 7.30 there were about 8 "daddy's little princesses" spread around the room adding to the din and you had to shout to be heard. On the positive side the food and wine were excellent with... More

We've just spent a lovely week in Blakeney so had the privilege of eating at the local places that we wanted to on more than one occasion, including The Moorings. The first thing to say is that the staff are exceptional; we have 2 relatively young children and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome... More

we visit the moorings generally on family occasions and it always produces an enjoyable experience. The food is excellent with lovely fish dishes and the staff are always eager to help and make the event memorable. In the evenings it is always best to book as there is always a full restaurant with a great informal atmosphere of customers chatting... More

Visiting The Moorings was a rather disappointing experience. It appears to be closed all day on at least two days a week and in the height of the season this seems a little unusual. We had toasted tea cakes which were small and dreary and a very poor and sparse cream tea with bog standard jam and very little cream... More

We have been here before and always enjoyed the feel of this little place. We were crabbing on the harbour and recommended it to a few people earlier in the day then retired back to have our lunch with the children later in the afternoon. Had the sausage cheese and onion chutney baguette and it was fantastic! Really impressed with... More

Booking essential at this busy restaurant and there seems to be a shortage of good restaurants in Norfolk. The four of us all chose something different. Peach rocket name and mozarella, smoked fish and crab and brown shrimp. All delicious. For mains trot, haddock and tuna again all cooked well and served quickly. Dessert board is a best feature goose... More

Booked and efficiently shown to our table, soon served with our drinks followed by some delicious starters of fish soup and potted brown shrimps, some time later the best haddock chips and peas we have enjoyed for a long time. We forced 2 creme brûlée s and espresso and enjoyed the finest spanish white which was full of flavour and... More

Yet another fantastic meal at The Moorings. We had eaten there on a previous occasion and this meal was just as good. We had the rack of lamb and it just melted in your mouth. The puddings are just divine and the service is excellent.
