I was visiting the area with a few friends at a local campsite and decided to walk down after learning the nearest pub had closed down. The landlady was more than helpful with directions over the phone and once we had arrived at 8:50 were more than happy to cater for us. The waitress explained the menu clearly to us... More

Driving back from Cornwall to Reading, we searched for somewhere decent near the M5 to grab some Sunday lunch. The pub was quiet which meant we got served quick, but the food was lovely. I normally don't like a pub Sunday roast, but this was awesome. I had the pork, the wife had the beef. Both very happy 👍👍👍.

Myself and my fiancé have visited this lovely country inn on three occasions now. Once for a Sunday Roast and twice for an evening meal, all three occasions staff have been friendly.... Food has been extremely good, proper pub food and the 8oz Burgers are amazing.... Will definitely be a regular now.... Keep up the good work!

Thought we would give this a try as very local and have never been. Cold saturday afternoon and wanted some lunch. The external parts of the pub look really nice and we were looking forward to going in. No fires going at all and a cold gloomy feel just hits you. We asked for a menu and were really disappointed...

Really great pub,serving classic good tasting food, really welcoming and relaxed environment, as some places you feel rushed to leave the table, whereas here they make you feel welcomed throughout the time of your experience, would definitely revisit

Having not been to The Half Moon, for a couple of years, some family and friends decided to give it a go. It seemed to have changed owners again and the service we received,which was attentive but not intrusive, suggests that this pub with a nice village type atmosphere may well be on it's way back to former glories. There... More

still the same as been for years,enter the pub from the carpark and smell the toilets,based on the sunday lunch being £11.95 i would expect a lot better,one slice of beef that was nt very good so maybe good job i didn't have any more to chew through,think the place needs a revamp

We chose to visit this pub after reading some reviews on trip advisor. It was also a place we visited regularly before our children were born, and thought we'd have a night there once more, to celebrate our friend's birthday. The interior hadn't changed in the 20 years since our last visit. Our food was pleasant enough, but I personally... More

If you're cruising the country roads in this neck of the woods then take a detour to this fine establishment. My friend and I visited yesterday (first date ☺) and upon walking into the premises were greeted with a lovely smile by the young man who even though he was busy helping several visitors to their table still acknowledged us...
