As a group of 8 all our food was excellent. They had run out of two mains on a sat night by 8pm but plenty to choose from. Hot inside restaurant. Helpful non intrusive staff. Delicious food.

Booked here as reviews were very good. Food is nice but not outstanding. We enjoyed it but not memorable. Crabcake and risotto for starters. Good venison and John dory, mullet and mussels. Pudding of blueberry and apply crumble was ok. Very noisy so not somewhere for an intimate meal for 2. Overall service was good though they forgot about our... More

We really wanted to come here for dinner, but they don't do dinner on a Sunday and we were only in Blakeney for a day. We'll have to come back! Everything we had was delicious and I had the best Roast Beef I've had in years, nice thick, pink slices of Sirloin. The desserts were also excellent and when I... More

We had been recommended The Moorings as an excellent place to eat and one that could deal well with allergies. The food was very good, but the allergies (onions) did throw them somewhat even though we did check when we booked that this was not a problem. In the end we did find something for my wife to eat but... More

Back to see if The Moorings was still up to scratch. The answer is NO.......it's even better. Local crab, brown shrimp and chive risotto to start. WOW! Then panfried loin of venison - still the best you will ever taste, accompanied by the most delicate cinnamon & celeriac mash with hedge berry juice. Just Heaven. The fish is squeaky fresh... More

We booked a table for seven people on a Saturday night. The whole place was packed which gave a buzzy feel however it was impossible to have a conversation without shouting very loudly. The room is small and with a lot of people all talking at once the noise was terrible. In fact it was so bad at one point... More

A group of us dropped in for a late lunch last week. We had a selection of meals and drinks - all very nice indeed and friendly service. Glutton free options were available too.

There was an attractive 'buzz' at the Moorings which we didn't find in other local establishments and this seemed to be reflected in the wider age group that were enjoying this small, simply decorated restaurant on the two occasions we visited. The crab cakes and the several fish dishes we tried were excellent.

Had a lovely lunch here whilst 4 of us were staying in The White Horse pub/hotel opposite. Really convenient for sea front.

We were lucky enough to get the last available table on Friday evening, should have booked in advance! I'm so glad we did, the staff were friendly and efficient, and the food was superb. One of the best meals out I have had this year. Would highly recommend, but probably a good idea to book first.

Thank Dougie D
