I visited the moorland garden hotel with my family for a pre Christmas celebration, there were 15 of us in total including my young son. We were seated at a table which was far too small for our party, there was barely room for us to cut our meal let alone be comfortable. As well as this problem there also was not enough condiments on the table and we spent the afternoon passing one salt and pepper pot between the whole table. Now onto the real disappointment- the poor service and terrible food. The whole party agreed that the starters were a let down of very poor quality, and the portion sizes inconsistent. Before they were served one of our party asked a waitress what the soup was and she had no idea. Then when the mains were served, once again we were disappointed with the portion sizes, we got a small amount of over cooked meat and one and a half roast potato each, which was served luke warm. placed on the table was one bowl of sprouts and one bowl of soggy parsnips, not only was this not enough for the whole table, but it was advertised that the meal came with a selection of vegetables, and to me 2 different vegetables does not count as a selection.
we were left wondering how this place had won best SW restaurant, because we flt they did not deserve this title.
we have used the moorland garden before for family events however we will not be using it again, we can get better value for money and better quality of food and service at the harvester.
