Enjoyed the taster menu. Staff were very accommodating and willing to swap one course out as my girlfriend didn't like it. I also had the wine pairing, which was good, but not sure they were paired perfectly. All the same a very tasty meal.

The menu is first class and beautifully presented. This menu is a lot less expensive than I would expect. Not to be missed. There is an early bird menu which is a great introduction to the moat house and defiantly value for money.
