We had two lunches here recently, using the outside seating area as we had a small dog with us. On our first visit we had hot sandwiches, which were very nice indeed. We made a point of coming back for a second meal the next day, again in the garden overlooking the marina. This time we opted for a two... More

Have been here with friends several times. The best thing is the friendly service. Food average but nicely presented. Surroundings dated.

Again, no complaints. The food is freshly prepared, beautifully presented, the service quiet and friendly. Having discovered this restaurant only recently, we keep returning and are never disappointed. Yes, it's quiet but that's the beauty of it. Well recommended.

Took my mum here on mothers day, it was very busy but I am not surprised. The quality of food was great and at an exceptionally reasonable price. Mum had the traditional roast beef with all the trimmings and I had cod (for a change) it was lovely. Even though the staff were run off their feet, nothing was too... More

The Moorings enjoys a good reputation for well prepared home cooking. The Sunday luncheon menu is simple & unpretentious, portions are plentiful & served with a smile. Situated at the Anderton Marina there's lots of narrow boats moored or coming & going outside. It is the perfect place for all the family.

Have visited The Moorings on numerous occasions over several years - both on group occasions and with family and friends. We have always been delighted with the food and friendly service.

I like small privately run cafés. So we dropped by for a coffee/cake after walking around Anderton Boat lift. Couldn't understand the unfriendliness of the waitress. So we haven't gone back. Normally enjoy coffee, cake and a smile. I'm here to give you my money...........be happy? Avoid.

Great if you like the smell of sewage and farm residue, and the excessive noise and bad language from the so called boat yard below!
