well what a disappointment. took MY WIFE SON AND DAUGHTER AND THERE SPOUSES for Sunday lunch roast turkey asked waitress under no circumstances that i didn't want any cabbage on or near my plate low behold i found a couple of pieces under my turkey. The turkey reformed warmed up not carved. the type you get in slices wrapped in plastic from a supermarket could somebody tell the chef you can not warm up cold meat it tastes disgusting and then try and disguise it with warm gravy and not much of it it came with a couple of warm roast potatoes a couple of warm new potatoes some really hard bendy carrots [al dente you are joking] and frozen peas. i don't believe a trained chef would serve this garbage. my wife had the rib of beef what a joke the same sliced up rubbish you find in slices in a supermarket could have been any thing. but looked like beef tough and very fatty again this had been warmed up it has that distinct taste of reheating you would be better of serving it cold and putting hot gravy on it and i mean hot not the warmed up stuff they gave us. my children [both adults ] had the slow roast lamb shank arrived within 10 minutes of ordering is that slow or is that fast both said it was very fatty i left it at that did not want to spoil my wife's birthday so did not complain to the management. sweets as nobody was full 4 sweets where ordered. went to pay the bill asked how much it was paid and no receipt was offered so couldn't check my bill when i asked for one she said Oh i can write you one out if you can wait. will not return this is a fair review and i hope the management take note and maybe try out the stuff they serve its just good food ruined

Went to Moorcock for midweek evening meal-
Pleasant surroundings .
Keeping labour costs low-restaurant & bar sevice slow,
Steak had to be sent back -ordered well done-arrived welldone on outside - rare inside.
Quite suprised how this basic error happened when restaraunt only 15% occupied- attention to detail in kitchen lacking ?
However when approached steak was recooked to satisfaction- however dont like hassle of complaining
Would go back however for drink

Stopped off here with a sizeable group and we enjoyed a decent lunch and great hospitality. Loverly location, great to sit out on a nice day and look over the hills.
