Our first ever Christmas lunch out and the Moorings didn't disappoint !! Food fab and served with a smile . The restaurant was very busy but nothing was too much trouble and we were able to eat at our own pace, which was great given the youngest guest was 1 and the oldest 85. (And new toilets fab too!!)

Another gorgeous meal in the mornings with their lovely friendly staff. However now it's even better as the toilets have been decorated and there is now a disabled toilet with proper baby change facilities. A really lovely pub, one of my favourite places to eat out

Very friendly welcome. Room and bathroom spotless. Good meal and selection of beers. Breakfast excellent. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. (Room in adjoining annexe....no problem, 3 yards between doors). Would recommend as overnight stop or base to explore area.
