We have been to the Moorings many many times. This is the place to go for quality service. The food is fantastic. The service is excellent. Over the years, we have NEVER had anything other then 100% from them in every respect. I can't say that about many places.

Visited 16/102016.. At first glance it looks like a little café' and then you walk through the door to a very pleasant little restaurant. We had driven past so many times and then we heard by word of mouth that the food was very good. About four weeks ago we had a little visit for lunch. We ordered from the... More

Ate at The Moorings on the last evening of our canal holiday and rounded off a fantastic fortnight with a very nice meal. The menu caters for all budgets but we decided to treat ourselves and were well rewarded with excellent quality and value. The location is very nice overlooking the marina (not far to walk to the boat!) and... More

This is a delight particularly in the week when quieter. Food is home made I think and is very good. Might need to book at weekends as gets very busy.

Popular place seemed to be lots of regulars having Sunday lunch. Room has pleasant view overlooking the narrowboats and marina if you able to sit by a window. There is a deep step splitting up the dining room which limits access for the less able bodied. Sunday lunch was uninspiring but reasonably priced .staff were helpful and pleasant and service...

Had an excellent Sunday lunch here last weekend. Good choice and good price - 3 options 1 course, 2 course or 3 course so all appetites catered for. Very friendly staff too. If you are lucky enough to get a table in the window you can watch all the activity in the Marina.

We were attracted by the reviews to visit this excellent restaurant and were not disappointed. The standard of the food and its presentation, the friendly service, the atmosphere, the spotless toilets and instant hot water, the location and value for money all ticked the top box.Very highly recommended.

Before leaving on our Cheshire canal trip we stopped next door for lunch. The food was very good and was the service. The owner and her husband are the chiefs and have been at this location for over 10 years. They take pride in the food the prepare and it shows. Can't wait to return and enjoy

After an excellent lunch here a week ago we decided to take friends who were visiting and from the moment we were given our table to when we paid and left nothing was too much trouble and the food, everyone having a different meal, were more than satisfied. So much so that other friends have already phoned to say that... More
