Serve the best coffee in the Westcountry! Intimate feel and artisan decor. Friendly helpful attentive staff. Centrally placed with parking not too far away.Well appointed toilets. Well worth a visit!

The sign in the window specifically said they were open Tuesday evenings. When we arrived, another couple was waiting in the street. We waited and waited, but nothing. If a staff member is sick, or can't come for some other reason, they should have someone put a sign on the door. Failure to do do shows a total lack of... More

We are sorry we were closed on that specific Tuesday evening. Had we been in a position to place a 'closed for the evening " note we would have done so. We recommend that customers call to book a table, especially in the evenings. Kind Regards, Olga Greedy owner More

We have been visiting Moorish over the last 10 years and have never failed to find it anything other than a relaxed and enjoyable experience whilst the food is reliably good. What is particularly good is that you can be sure of the menu being authentic Spanish tapas (with Morrocan flavours) and not like restaurants who serve up a not... More

Excellent café/restaurant in Ashburton. Have visited this place twice now and enjoyed good food on both occasions. Good North African type cuisine, well cooked. The service whilst I was there was excellent. Tables are not too close together so you're not listening to other people's conversations. Price not too bad. I'd go again when I visit the area.

Nice atmosphere to meet up for a chat or even mini-meeting. Good quick service, but by no means the best coffee in town.

We decided to pop down to Moorish for dinner as we have been meaning to for some time. The young staff were very friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere was ambient and the place noticeably clean and well cared for. Being vegetarian I found the menu limited but went for the pancakes. They came pretty quickly which was great as I... More

Dear Madam, I can assure that our toilets do get cleaned thoroughly every morning and evening. You were , it seems , very unlucky with your timing ( may be someone visited the toilet before you?). The floor gets "dirty" as in the winter time we do have a lot of rain in our beautiful town and people come to... More

We had a divine orange and almond cake with nice black coffee to warm up after a bracing (=drenching) walk on Dartmoor. The atmosphere was welcoming, the staff were friendly, and it was just what we needed. The lunch menu looked interesting but we had to get home...

Not expensive, average tapas. Small selection of average wine, i could only see one type of beer on the menu. totally average, un-inspiring food I really don't have anything else to say.
