Within an emphasis on quality and fresh seasonal ingredients, the menu delivers something for everyone throughout the day, starting with Moomba’s famous breakfasts – the Full English, Eggs Benedict, and Pancakes being particular favourites, washed down with superb quality coffees, and fabulous smoothies and fresh juices. The seasonally appropriate menu changes regularly, and features casual dining options like homemade soups, meat and vegetarian pies, meat, fish and vegetarian sharing boards, and handmade gourmet burgers, plus imaginative fish dishes, expertly cooked steaks and the house specialty, Beef Wellington. Moomba also offers good value set-lunch and a reasonably priced kids menu. The restaurant itself is glamorously decked out with lush fabrics, stylish wallpapers and lighting.

I really enjoyed my dinner at Moomba's. The place is cosy and tidy, the food is very good, traditional English with a little innovation. A good balance of meat and fish dishes. I particularly liked the staff there, kind and happy. Weak points: no options for vegans and... don't try the espresso if you are a coffee lover!

We stumbled into Moomba for brunch a couple of months ago and other than one other couple we were the only customers. The coffee and fresh orange were very good. The food was nice and it was reasonably priced. We just felt it lacked atmosphere and the decoration / music was a little too trendy for our liking. I would give an overall rating of good but trip advisor only allows average or very good.

We were a rather large party, and from the start received personalized attention from the owner. She was very kind, paying attention to every person and no request was too much of a bother. The food was wonderfully prepared, and the presentation was exquisite. One person in the party had the venison and could not stop talking about how spectacular it was. The puddings were equally well received with the sticky toffee pudding and the lavender creme brulee receiving rave reviews from the table.

The atmosphere and decor is very nice (as mentioned in other reviews). We had Sunday brunch and the food was below average. We enjoyed the wheat grass smoothie. But the scrambled eggs, salmon and blinis were poor: dried egg and stodgey blini. Full english breakfast was pricey for the quality: black pudding over cooked. Will not go back.

I arranged a supper here for 30. The venue shape meant that everyone sat at a long table but could move around between courses to mingle. Everyone made their meal choice in advance and so everything was delivered so that no one had to wait. We had cold platters for starters, prompt delivery of the main course and leisurely dessert. Nice wines, funky ambiance and a really successful evening celebration. Plenty of staff on hand to work the bar and serve the food. A really enjoyable evening.
