Nice Food

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

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
