“The Best By Far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We have just visited the Moors Brasserie in Pangbourne, well we did go to Pangbourne to visit the Moors next door neighbour called Little Johnny's but it was too cold inside and the door were wide open so we decided to go next door the the Moors instead.
Well this was an eye opener, what amazing food and friendly staff.
I had the Moors club sandwich and my wife had Parma ham, pesto and mozzarella panini. It could have been hunger after our bike ride but they tasted great. We will be back.

“Doesn't live up to expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Based on the fantastic reviews of The Moors Brasserie we came for a Sunday Brunch. I am not sure whether the staff member we were served by was new but she did not seem to know much about waitressing or food unfortunately. While this wouldn't normally bother me, based on the fantastic reviews I had expected something a little more than what we experienced.

The coffee and food were fine but nothing special and there was a disappointing selection for vegetarians.

This would be a great place to go for a late breakfast local, but I wouldn't make a special trip here.

“Really good meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Excellent night!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

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!

“Very expensive Birthday treat for the office!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

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!
