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

After reading some reviews I was a little apprehensive when arriving for Sunday Lunch with my husband and friend. It turned out to be one of the nicest lunches we've had. We were all impressed by not only the quality of the food but the service too. It was our first visit but it won't be our last.

We visited for my mum's 81's birthday and although the food was quite good (apart from frozen chips which were I must say better than the average frozen chip) we all commented on the waiter appearing unapproachable and grumpy. We were quite scared of asking him questions about the menu! There were comments about him getting out of the wrong... More

Visited the moorings for family lunch following returning to Anderton marina from holiday. What an odd place, not sure if it's a cafe, restaurant, bistro?The menu goes from basic cafe food to fine dining?The decor again is between a cafe and restaurant. Must say there needs an injection of atmosphere that is not being created by the manager/owner.The food was... More

I recently enjoyed a midweek lunch here with friends. There was a range of food on offer including a set price lunch for £10.75 as well as a snack menu. Living less than 2 miles away from this restaurant it has been a regular destination for many years, especially for morning coffee/afternoon tea. Jim and Jackie have never disappointed us... More

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.
