During our visit to the Ashburton food fest, we needed a cuppa and a rest so opted for moorish. We found the staff friendly and there was a pleasant atmosphere. they did not seem to mind us only having drinks. Browsed the menu while there which was interesting, most people seemed to be having Tapas which looked good. we had... More

when we visited, although our B&B host was surprised, saying food and service can be a bit hit and miss depending which staff are on duty. On the night we visited, 2 young women were front of house. They were pleasant and helpful with our enquiries about the menu. Menu is short, with a couple of specials available. Food was... More

Great choice for vegetarians - go for the tapas and you won't be disappointed. A little thin on atmosphere but the music helped. More interior decor on a Moorish theme would help create a better vibe. Very pleasant helpful service, and an amazing meringue pudding which was so huge we only needed one between two of us.

We visited for lunch and ate ginger pork burgers and tapas. Portions are on the smallish side but food is flavoursome. We returned to the town at night - intending to try another restaurant but most were closed on a mid week night. The menu in the evening was different and reasonably limited. Dish of mullet and hake fish on... More

We booked for 8.00 pm and were welcomed by friendly staff and a good atmosphere. There was a choice of 3 main meals or a varied selection of Tapas. We chose a fish dish with lentils and potatoes and a hallouimi fritter with carrots. Both meals were very good and presented on time. Unfortunately the bread and butter pudding on... More

A second visit, this time with the family for an early evening meal. It was empty at 18.30 though one other party did turn up. I went for the kebabs and was warned that, despite a £12.50 price tag, they were fairly small portions (true), average taste but quite fatty. The others had tapas bowls, decent size, at £4.75 each...

Stopped in for breakfast as our usual cafe (Lazy Dazy) had closed down. The cafe is really nice inside and looked promising. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The coffee was just warm so had to drink it immediately. The breakfast was ok but nothing to write hone about. What was most disappointing was that this cafe is right next... More

Took a break from driving on the A38 here, for a midmorning coffee and snack. What strikes as an ex-pub has a cold unwelcoming atmosphere which comes with tatty decor, dirty tiled floors, and a not so clean toilet (only one for all). The coffee proved to be the worst we have had for a very long time and, when... More

We arrived, weary, in Ashburton just as all the local pubs stopped serving lunch; we were turfed out of one Ye Olde sticky-tabled establishment just up the street. How lucky we then were with this find as the Moorish restaurant was still open. I was a bit reluctant as we entered (not a great fan of lentils, houmus and the... More

I was in Ashburton to take my daughter to her clarinet exam, held in the old School - altogether an old school experience. While she was being examined I had a look for a suitable place to take her for a drink and a snack before returning her to real school. Having rejected several places I came across Moorish and...
