“afternoon tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Today we were invited to an afternoon birthday tea at the Grange Moor. We received a warm welcome and were served by a very pleasant and attentive waitress. The tea was served in a private room, tables laid with crisp white cloths and pretty china. The tea comprised of finger sandwiches of various filling, home made scones real clotted cream, jam and assorted small Danish pastries. Tea and coffee were served on arrival and throught the afternoon. A family member made the birthday cake and the Grange Moor provided a silver cake stand. A big thank you to front of house and behind the scenes staff.

“Spoilt rotten!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

It has always been superb. The change of ownership was a worry but seemingly nothing else has changed - it is still superb and attention to detail is reassuring especially when running an event there.

“Basic food in a sombre environment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We visited the Grangemoor for the Sunday Carvery Lunch after positive reviews from friends.
However the food was very basic and the dining area had the feel and ambience of a retirement home. The sombre environment also seemed to attract those lacking in basic dining etiquette.

Although there was a good choice of meats, the quality was substandard and the vegetables were wilted and tasteless.
The vegetarian nutroast option was particularly poor; being very dry and offering little flavour. This dish was also delivered before we were invited up to the carvery (to select vegetables) and so was cold.

At nearly £16 per head for 3 courses I did not believe this to be good value for money. The chain pubs offer much better quality and atmosphere for the same money or less.

“Good honest food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Excellent value for money. The food was tasty, nicely presented and served. Did not have to wait too long even when they were busy. Decent wine list and specials board.

“Eating Out \Without Pretention”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

This restaurant serves good quality food, unpretentios, and accommadating. Waiting staff were mature and obliging, bar busy, due to large coach parties. Starters were straight forward, roast dinner excellent and desserts,beautifully presented. All served hot, with a smile, staff looked like they enjoyed working there, and it showed. Would I go back------ maybe, but nothing really stuck in my memory. I would like to find somewhere to eat that WAS memorable. I will keep reading Trip Advisor reviews!
