Have visited The Moorings many times over the past few years and have never failed to be impressed with both the standard of food and service. The restaurant is next to and overlooks the Anderton Marina and the canal boats and also close to Anderton Boat Lift. It's an unusual single storey building and doesn't give many clues to the...

ON EVERY OCCASION we have visited The Moorings, me, the wife and other family members that have joined us, have... More

We are going to moor here in 2017. so we decided to see what The Moorings had to offer. The small restaurant is nicely decorated and very clean and tidy. We ordered from the Sunday lunch menu. The plates were a bit on the small side but the potatoes and vegetables were served separately, extra gravy came along with a... More

We thought we'd pop in for lunch while waiting for our canal boat for a quick bite to eat. Wrong... while the menu looked reasonable the prices were high for what is was, but hey ho, start of our holiday. We ordered paninis which cook almost 40 minutes to arrive, that was once we'd been able to place our order.... More

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.
