I've recently been on a trip to South Devon and visited the town of Ashburton, between Exeter and Plymouth just off the A 38. I had the good fortune to visit Moorish Restaurant for Lunch ; what a welcome surprise ! Outstanding Cuisine and Excellent friendly service. Reasonable prices and well worth a visit.

Found this by accident when looking for a late lunch and it did not disappoint. Imaginative menu with a selection of specials of the day. Good freshly cooked tasty food. Friendly attentive service and all at a very reasonable price. If you have room, the Moorish cake is not to be missed - but they will also wrap up a... More
