“Amazing Birthday Celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We we went to the Moon and Sixpence for my Mum's birthday meal, the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very friendly, we had the menu where we could choose 3 courses and finished our meal off with coffee and fudge! The menu choice was good and the food was great! As it was a birthday celebration my Mum's pudding had been given the birthday treatment which finished off her birthday meal perfectly! We will go back for another meal very, very soon as had such a lovely and relaxing meal.

“Lovely food, but poor service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Having read the Trip Advisor reviews from other customers, I think we came on a bad hair day! Our visit with relatives was on Friday 18/10/13 at lunchtime and as far as the food is concerned was excellent, beautifully cooked we had three courses, all very good. We were not offered a Wine list or water with the meal and when we asked for coffees at 2.45pm we were told it was too late as they closed at 3pm. Would not stop us coming again, the food and surroundings were lovely, so lets hope our next visit will be more customer friendly.

“Hyltons at The Moon & Sixpence - A hidden gem!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

A hidden gem, well worth the trip from Warwick & Oxford for our family to meet up and celebrate a birthday last Saturday night.

Staff welcomed us with smiles, took coats/jackets and led us to the table. A terrific atmosphere, although the restaurant was busy, it didn't seem over-crowded and the service was top notch - every waiter/waitress was pleasant, efficient, knew the menu inside out and could make recommendations that were spot on.

The food was brilliant, very original menu and portion sizes were well judged, none of the pretentious 'less is more' nor were they gargantuan, leaving you feeling stuffed and sending food back. The Mille Feuille dessert was amazing!!! Never was a Mille so Feuille with flavoured cream, fruit and almonds all combined with a scoop of rum n raisin ice cream....

Can't wait to go back.
