When the roast was initially served It looked average but once I started eating it I knew it was well above average. One of the best tasting roast dinners I've had. Reserve the table in the window for some extra romance.

I've eaten at the mooring many times, the atmosphere, service, attention to detail are next to none. The food is superb and never disappoints. Perfect for a romantic couple or a large family gathering. Best restaurant on the north Norfolk coat by far!!

When we were there no dogs were present but if in doubt read my review at the Kings arms round the corner there they are most welcome however most outlets in Blakeney make provision for dogs
