This was the first time we had visited the Moorland Garden Hotel since it changed its name from The Moorland Links Hotel and acquired new owners. We are local people and had heard good reviews of the food. So, for the occasion of my birthday took the plunge and booked a table. From the moment we arrived we could see that the staff were overly stretched. We were ushered into a lounge area by the gentleman on the reception desk and saw no-one for at least 20 minutes. We were slightly early so this didn't bother us much but we are accustomed, at other places we regularly visit to eat, to be offered drinks not just to be left alone without another word. When we eventually ordered and sat down to eat the whole meal took nearly 3 hours! Having said that the food was wonderful and the waiting staff (two girls and Simon the acting manager) were friendly, professional and very apologetic about the wait. Simon offered that our wine be free of charge as an apology which we readily accepted. I would highly recommend the food but hope that on our next visit they have enough staff to cope with the amount of people they have booked.
