“Tasty Meal in local pub garden!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Lovely meal in local pub garden during the hot weather and despite, it being very busy, the staff were excellent and attentive. We eat here fairly regularly, sometimes with family, sometimes friends. We have not had a bad meal yet! Early bird menu excellent value

“Excellent, well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Went for lunch with family and friends. 6 in total.

Set course menu, 2 courses £10.95, 3 courses £13.95. 4 of us had the set menu, 2 al a carte. Both menus had a good choice.

All the food was excellent. I had haddock and struggled to finish it. They have a lovely garden for you to sit in or you can sit in side.

Fish and chips on a Friday lunchtime £8.95 including a cup of tea.

Will definitely go back.

“Flies are a problem!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Have recently visited this pub for the first time. The meal was average.Starter of prawn cocktail nice but nothing special. Hunters chicken burger lovely and nicely presented. The puddings eaten on the table were nothing special either, have had better. The Moor and Pheasant has had a total refurbishment and is exceptionally nice inside and out in the beer garden. Plenty of pleasant staff, but service a bit slow at the bar. Eating inside on a hot sticky evening was spoilt by the annoying amount of flies . Worth a visit but be prepared to swat them away constantly or eat outside.

“Lovely food, friendly service, absolutely nothing to complain about..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Well maybe the damn fly which wouldn't leave us alone!
Food was excellent and beautifully cooked. The black pudding starter was particularly magnificent. I was expecting to find there were not enough vegetables but a large bowl of greens was brought in addition to what was on the plate and there was plenty.
Highly recommended and we will definitely be going again.
Thank you to the efficient and friendly staff.

“Early bird”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Has visited the moor & pheasant previously for an evening meal and it was outstanding. This time however, it was a major disappointment.

We went for the early bird menu - 2 courses for £10.95. Both my partner and myself has the Cajun chicken which was dry and extremely over seasoned. Not enjoyable at all. We also ordered 2 childrens meals, sausage overcooked and black, beans overcooked in the microwave, pasta in "chunky tomato sauce" looked like something you'd get in a wetherspoons or similar. Desert was the only saving grace.
At £50 it was a very expensive midweek meal that was not worth the money at all. We won't be back unfortunately.
