Lovely meal

My husband and I visited The Moody Mare (hate the name!), formerly The Beeches, on a Wednesday evening. The staff were really friendly and welcoming. We had come on the same night as their bi-monthly pudding club, which I may have to try! Although it wasn't overly busy thank goodness. The food... read more

we decided to visit on a Friday night, bringing friends along as we enjoyed the food so much the last couple of times we have visited. The staff as before were very attentive and the food was again of good quality. However, there was a girl singing live music, she couldn't have looked more bored if she had tried! she... More

My friends and I used to come to the Beeches fairly regularly and have really enjoyed the food and the live entertainment, but for some reason had not re-visited for some years. We were sent vouchers for a 25% discount off the food and we all thought it would be very nice to return to what had now become the... More

I am not quite sure if it was your time piece or ours that was out but according to our booking audit trail your starters were sent to your table at 830, shortly after one of your table came to see me to complain about not having a wine list. As i explained to the lady because you had pre... More

I have been to 'The Beeches' twice before it changed it's name to 'The Moody Mare' and received an offer via text for 25% off the bill, so my husband and I thought we'd try it out again. On first impressions we could see that they have turned what had been their refurbished restaurant into a Gastro kind of pub... More

Very busy Sunday lunch and for people dropping in they were open about the length of wait before they could eat. Seems booking for Sunday lunch a must. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Wifi... More

Having frequented The Beeches on several occasions over the last few years and always enjoyed our food and its ambience, we decided to try its successor, The Moody Mare, on Saturday for lunch. First impression upon approaching the pub is that there are far too many signs around – one still reading ‘The Beeches’. The car park is spacious but... More

The pub has been renamed The Moody Mare since our last visit. There is a great car park onsite so parking is very easy. We decided on the spur of the moment to eat here after we had been to Bluewater. There is the offer of bread and olives while you wait for the starter to come. Personally I though... More
