“Earlybird Menu”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

we went for the earlybird menu (2 courses for £13.50 pp) and enjoyed our choices. Squid & Hummus for starters,and we both had the Sea Bass for main. The staff were very welcoming & friendly. Would go again.

“Lovely evening”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Another brilliant night at The New Moon. It was a last minute decision for a special occasion.

Everything was great, drinks, service & the food. Pulled pork main course was amazing!

We'll be back again soon!

“Excellent service”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

The New Moon offers a wide menu, excellent service and a value for money early supper, very convenient for the Brewery Arts Centre opposite. Can highly recommend.

“Sole destroying”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I’ve eaten here several times before and always found the food to be very good. So was looking forward to a recent lunchtime visit.

Being a boring sort of chap I plumped for an old favourite – goujons of sole. Oh dear.
What has happened? It looked like the same place – the décor hadn’t changed, the menu hadn’t changed and the ‘charming’ host was his usual friendly self.

But the food….

The batter was so hard it appeared to have been fried at least twice before. Maybe that’s when the sole escaped because it was almost impossible to locate anything resembling fish inside (the consensus round that table was that 1 in 4 goujons wasn’t totally hollow). On the plus side, it did provide an entertaining 15 minutes of Russian roulette as we attempted to chip our way through the goujons not knowing which direction the shards would fly in next.

Maybe, rather than the clichéd mini plant pot of cold fries, thimble of tartare sauce and salad garnish, diners could be provided with chisels and protective goggles to get maximum pleasure from the experience.
