Having not been to the Moon and Sixpence since my mates wedding back in the mid 90's but having heard so many good things about it I was really looking forward to coming back. On arrival the pub looked quite different but once we went through to the dinning area it looked exactly the same. The food we ordered was... More

We had a drink at the bar before going to our table - which is always a nice more relaxed start to the evening. We were taken to our table which was on the top level by the stairs. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. There was a good choice of food on the menu and we all atefar... More

We were a party of four out to celebrate my husband's birthday on the 20th December 2015. We all ordered the Sunday lunch and were not disappointed.

This is an impressive upmarket dining pub with a dining area on two levels and a most agreeable ambiance. Round tables can be uneconomical of space, but, as found here, they make conversation between six people much easier. I was very pleased to find a fairly uncommon favourite- a choice of savoury steamed suet puddings- on the menu. On a... More

We had our Christmas lunch at the Moon & Sixpence, such a lovely time, all boxes ticked. Visited again this Sunday for lunch & greeted like old friends by the barman, excellent food, dessert was particularly divine... Good food, very welcoming atmosphere, excellent service all boxes ticked again! Looking forward to our next visit

Came here for my birthday with my husband, we had a 3 course meal. All 3 courses were amazing and I would highly recommend this place to everyone. The staff were friendly and very polite. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Another perfect meal by The Moon & Sixpence. This visit we brought along our friend who ordered some sort of multiple meat plate (really can't remember what it was). My wife ordered the halibut plate, and I ordered the haddock and salmon plate. Great food...again!

I came here a few years ago and it was brilliant, so when my friends invited us to their birthday meal I was really looking forward to it. The bar man was very unfriendly and rude! I ordered the steak which is very overpriced and not what was expecting, I could have cooked this myself at home not up to... More

I was very disappointed to read your comments and somewhat shocked that anyone could ever possibly call Sam, unfriendly..or rude. Sam has worked for me for many years now and he’s renowned for his professionalism, efficiency and amiable nature. Having spoken to all members of staff that were working last Friday, I am aware that your party left happy after... More
