Wanting somewhere local to eat we walked to the Moors where we have eaten a couple of times before. It was quite full but there was a table for two available. The menu was tempting, the specials board enticing too. Looking at the food coming out of the kitchen we were feeling very hungry! We shared an amazing baked Camembert.... It was enormous and I'm not sure i would have eaten it on my own, however a table of 4 next to us each ate one!! I had a really well presented chicken on a potato stack with lime and chilli and my husband a perfect stark. Again very filling and big portions! A great jam roly poly to finish, again we shared. Perfect service and a really good evening.

Took some friends for a meal out and all we can all say was what fab food and great value too!!! We shared the flatbreads and dips to start, followed by 3 chicken supreme and a beef bourguignon, all amazing! Then puddings, well they had sold out of one of the trio pudds but nothing was too much and they put a new trio together for one of our party. Nothing was to much, service was fab as was the food and a really relaxed atmosphere too! Definitely will return and recommend!

Have been meaning to review this for a few months so here goes - 2 birthdays in one week at work so boss took us to The Moors for coffee and cake. The place had only just re-opened after change of ownership and we wanted to try it out. They didn't 'do' cake but when we explained how disappointed we were the waitress asked in the kitchen and came back to tell us that they could do a chocolate brownie. When it came it arrived as a dessert with icecream and very small amount of fresh fruit. The place had no atmosphere at all and they clearly did not want coffee customers not purchasing a meal. The waitress was friendly enough but we were not made welcome, the cost of 4 coffees and 4 'pieces of cake' was extremely expensive and boss and two other colleagues would not go back. I have been back twice since but wouldn't go again, the place has not had any atmosphere on all trips, food good once but not the second time for dinner. staff usually friendly expect for one of the owners who never seems to have a smile on his face!

Looks like the new management have cracked the problem of a previously dismal place by changing the chef rather than the décor.. Nicely served food with good portion size and no faffing about. Well worth a visit and I don't think you will be disappointed. The best restaurant in Pangbourne by far, well as good as the Peking Garden if it is to be compared at all with what is probably Berkshire's best chinky...

Stopped here for lunch as our usual pub was closed. The menu had some contrasting styles (eg. Thai and Toulouse sausage) which makes it good for variable tastes. We had Thai curry, toulouse sausage and special lasagne (avocado). All good with individual tastes, except for the lasagne which was a bit experimental and ended up as some limp avocado topped with thick rubbery cheese, but I would not want to overly cricitise imagination, even when it is a bit off the mark. Deserts were very nice, if a bit small.
Service good and friendly, but a round of coffee was forgotten. I liked the way that the chef was continually scoping the place to make sure he was on top of things.
The dining room is nicely furnished, if a bit small and crowded, though I realise that is hardly the restaurants fault. It does feel more like a coffee shop with people popping in for a quick cake/coffee rather than a leisurely lunch eating place. I would like to see the place a bit bigger.
PS Good news. The Peroni is on tap!
