Lovely light lunch

Our group sampled soup, sausage baguettes (with cheese) and the potted shrimps. All enjoyed. Recommended.

On our visit to Blakeney spotted this cafe just up from the quay-side. Lovely interior with quality fittings and artwork. Ordered coffee and warm croissants which were delicious. Friendly staff and good service. Varied menu on offer for lunch too.

Guests staying at our B&B were recommended The Moorings by a friend of theirs and really enjoyed their meal. We dropped by at lunchtime hoping to get a table and we did. The décor is light and airy, the staff friendly, service excellent and the food delicious. We had scallops with pea puree and pancetta, perfectly cooked and just enough... More

Staff friendly, welcoming and efficient Food pretty ordinary and poor value. The mixed seafood main dish was particularly poor value.

We just stopped off for a coffee but when we saw the treats on offer who could refuse. I had the treacle tart with nuts which was fantastic and my wife shared it with me. The coffee was very good.

After a long journey, we were so looking forward to a good wholesome meal for dinner. The moorings didn't let us down, we enjoyed good quality food, and loved it. We chose scallops, and hake for main.......Gorgeous. I refrained from dessert, but my goodness, the choice of all the homemade puds were delightful. It's a 10/10 kind of place,no buts.

This would have been rated 4.5 stars had that been possible. The Moorings has been a firm favourite of ours for many years, and an important part of our regular summer visits to this delightful area of the country. It never fails to disappoint, and this year seems to have excelled itself. My partner rates the fish soup as world... More
