'Jekyll and Hyde'

I am reluctant to be critical as the food here is always excellent and well-presented. However, potential visitors should be made aware of the Owner's moodiness. He can be either welcoming and chatty, or grumpy and taciturn. Hopefully it will not be the latter next time. An overall rating of... read more

Lunch with family which was excellent. The service was very good despite the fact that the restaurant was very busy. The meals were excellent, just sufficient without being too much. The view over the marina is a bonus.

The food was great and reasonably priced but the service was superb. This was a Sunday lunch and well worth recommending as a outing for the family..

A real Sunday lunch can be obtained here, with crunchy well done roast potatoes and all the trimmings including the nicest spring cabbage I have ever tasted. The Sweets are also delightful especially the fruit salad and the coffee was hot! Well worth a visit.

So for those who haven't visited The Moorings it is a small boutique restaurant located in Anderton, a couple of miles outside Northwich. As you cross the River Weaver and head towards the countryside away from the built up areas on Northwich and Winnington you will find the restaurant nestled by the side of the canal and attached to a...

I have been living close to this restaurant for 10 years and never got around to calling in. As a marina restaurant I expected cafe grub and microwave fast food. What a pleasant surprise, specials on the wall, a 2 courses for £10.95 or a full A La carte menu. Delicious home made vegetable soup, lovely portion of plaice in... More

Brilliant meal. Brilliant service.... Again . I have read other reviews and the ones complaining must have gone to a different restaurant. It's excellent.

This restaurant is very near to where we live and yet we don't go often enough! The hosts, Jackie and Jimmy are excellent chefs and you always, always receive a lovely welcome. We decided to go for Sunday lunch to celebrate my husband's birthday. Yet again, we were not disappointed. It was warm and cosy inside and the Xmas decorations... More

My husband enjoyed his soup and got it in a nice decorative bowl. I enjoyed my jacket potato and it was cooked very well and tasted delicious.... More

We had hired a boat from the adjoining marina and after a weeks cruising had arrived back on the canal by the marina by lunch time the day before our final day. So it was convenient to have a light lunch in the Moorings. Our waitress was so friendly and our meal so enjoyable that we decided to go back... More
