The good things about this place is the lovely sized garden which is perfect for energetic children. Unfortunately, although it's very local I tend to avoid due to the very uninspiring menu. But it is a chain so expected I suppose.

Having booked a table at the moat it certainly did t disappoint. The food was lovely. The drink was great. The service was warm and friendly. I would definitely recommend this and come again soon!

My hubby & I took our 1 year old for an early dinner here and it was a lovely afternoon. The food here is gorgeous and a good sized portion.

Popped in here after for an impromptu meal with friends after work. The bar area and restaurant is quite large with lots of tables. We found a table in the restaurant and the staff were very attentive. We all choose different dishes and the food came very quickly and was very tasty and hot. I wouldn't say it has the... More

We visited the moat for the first time on Sunday 23/04, I found the waiting staff very efficient and frendly so no complaints there. However the food was below average, our table of five had different meals consisting of two roast turkey which was ok but not hot enough plus bought in products, my son had ham egg chips the...

I'm not sure if the Moat has changed ownership or been turned into a franchise but it's definitely changed. The food wasn't great at all. Neither in taste or presentation did it appeal. I had a steak and tanglefoot pie which they've always done and used to appear home made, this is no longer. Looks and tastes like a frozen... More

Service was totally disjointed and unprofessional For main course we both ordered the steak and ale pie and to say the pastry was hard is an understatement. Luckily the contents were good but the accompanying mash carrots and cabbage were worse than school dinner standards. Definitely a no-go!

We ordered 2 lunches of steak and pie both with chips, but unfortunately the chips came out hot but were tasteless and soft. We complained to the waitress who bought out some more but again these were bland and tasteless, needless to say we were still charged full price even though we didn't eat all of the meal. Not impressed... More
