Visited to try the tapas menu after it being recommended by a friend. Very interesting choices,seven of which we tried & enjoyed although the Crispy potatoes were a little overdone. Friendly service. Based on the above we'll definitely be returning to sample the restaurant menu.

Just had lunch at The Moorcock and what a pleasant experience this was. Being vegetarian, often the options are boring and consist of cheese or egg, so to be offered the full flavours, textures and tastes on this innovative menu was a revelation. We will...More
