“Good value, great service and fab food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Went a couple of weeks ago for the first time. We were seated in the bar as the restaurant was hosting a private party. The service (from Oliver in particular) was fab and a great range of choices on the menu. We all had mixed grill which was MASSIVE and everything was cooked to an excellent standard. Would thoroughly recommend it and have been back since, probably the first of many visits :-)

“What it used to be like”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

Having our meal here reminded us of what this pubs glory days were like. Bustling bar areas, busy restaurant area and helpful/ friendly staff. Keep up the good work

“Overcooked”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The Moulders Arms is a public house in Birtley. It changed hands a few months ago and the new proprietors are working hard to rebuild its former good reputation for home cooked meals.
I recently had an evening meal here as a member of a pre-booked party. There was a good choice of food and drinks at sensible prices and the serviing staff were very helpful. Our starters were tasty but unfortunately the main courses were not as good as expected as many of the dishes seemed overcooked. This may have been because the kitchen staff tried to keep all of the food hot until everyone could be served together. The desserts were mostly enjoyable and we were able to occupy our table all evening.
I expect that smaller parties will find the meals more enjoyable.
