Had dinner here with friends before a weekend away. They were very understaffed, several jobs being advertised on door as we entered. The service was obviously very slow, ordering took forever, the food took forever and was average at best and the poor waitress was rushed of her feet. Perhaps when they are fully staffed things may improve.

This was our second visit to this pub in two years and we received the same friendly welcome and service. This time we had an excellent ploughmans lunch which was first class. There are so many pubs nowadays that only do 'posh' food and it is not always easy to get this type of lunch so we were well satisfied. The only niggle was the small amount of bread served as it was not adequate. Overall it was value for money and we would go again when next in Clevedon.

As we walked in, we soon discovered that the Moon and Sixpence is bursting with character. Its the sort of place that makes you smile and feel at home as soon as you enter. As we approached the bar, despite the fact that they were clearly very very busy, we were served quickly and met with a very warm welcome.

We were lucky enough to actually nab a seat on their balcony, from which we were able to share a delicious meditarain platter for two and drink a pint of beer while watching the sun set over Clevedon pier.

The platter, from the specials board consisted of crispy chicken, 4 types of marinated olives, cold meats, cheese and some delicious thrice fried hand cut chips (hmmmm), complete with a tasty balsamic and olive oil dip. An extremely pleasant selection of tantalising tastes to accompany the beautiful summer evening and the seaside sunset. Perfect.

Watching the other food go by, it looked delicious. The menu features all the pub classics like Ham egg and chips, home made Steak and Ale Pie (which I saw going past me…. NOM!). 3 tasty looking vegetarian options were also available, Cauliflower cheese, Veg Lasagne and, a Greek Vilage Salad (Olives, Feta & Halloumi Cheeses, Pitta and Tzatziki Dip). The specials board that day had a little bit of a Mediterranean / Greek feel, which, weather or not by design, felt perfect for that evenings combination of sea and very atypical English climate.

I mentioned they were busy. It was a glorious Saturday evening, so this is where the Moon And Sixpence knocked my socks off, despite the fact they must have all been run off their feet, the service was quick, efficient and friendly and was made to look effortless. The staff did not look or act tired or harassed. Return visits to the bar reaffirmed my initial impression of genuine welcome and warmth and even though I was served by more than one person, it was always quick and very friendly.

I truly admire a pub that runs like this. They make it look easy. It is not! Highly recommended for a day trip, evening meal, or even a weekend away, the Pub have 5 excellent looking rooms available.

Congratulations to Proprietors Tony and Christine Antoni for an outstanding pub and thank-you for an extremely pleasant evening.
