Description: At Gipsy Moth, traditional Free House and Carvery the choice of hand pulled fine ales and wines are better today than ever before, and the quality of our food is outstanding. Chalk- boards on the wall display a host of recommendations. Fresh farm assured British Carvery is the house specialty, but whether you choose the same enthusiasm and commitment will be put into created the perfect dishes, just for you! The Gipsy Moth operates full table service all across the restaurant and bar area.

“What do you expect for £6?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Been here several times, on one occasion made the mistake of ordering from the menu instead of going for the carvery. Took ages to be served and then even longer for the food to arrive! So having learned from that mistake we now get the carvery and usually it's great, the meat is always juicy and the is a big selection of sides. This last time we went though it was just after 12 and there were no roast potatoes left (the chef did go and get some more but it took a while) and everything looked over done. It was really quiet and we were seated quickly by a lovely girl who took our drinks order and brought it over to us promptly, one niggle though getting asked how your food is when you have just sat down and taken a bite is a bit annoying! Overall for the price it's a good place to fill your plate.

“OK for a quick meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

What can you expect for a £5.95 carvery but food could have been fresher - some looked distinctly dried up!

“Our London Weekend.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Friendly, efficient staff, good food that was very tasty & well presented. The pricing was very reasonable too. Good seating areas & didn't mind the children being there.

“Food cold”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

We ate dinner - carvery and breakfast following a stay at the near bye Premier Inn. Both breakfast and dinner where cold, which was a shame as both tasted ok but not hot enough.

Breakfast staff seem far less professional than the people working in the late afternoon, would not recommend.
