We had not visited for sometime as it has been disappointing. It has changed hands . The food was fine better than last time quite a few thing not on the menu now we noted. The service was slow though it wasnt busy so should have been ok.

We eat here most weekends, the food is always fantastic and the portions are huge!!! The Sunday lunch is always perfectly cooked, and the specials menu is a great addition.

I'm gluten intolerant so when we arrived I asked if they had a special menu and was brought one although the full menu had recently changed so it didn't correlate exactly but did have some similar dishes on. The waitress was extremely helpful and asked me for a list... More

As locals we keep going hoping it improves, sadly it just gets worse! 2 meals inedible and the other 3 'filled a gap'. This is not a cheap establishment so my recommendation is Don't Bother!!!!! Ok for after a walk and a drink but stay clear of the food.

Poor reception from staff despite having booked in advance. We felt like we were an inconvenience to the blonde haired older lady who took our order, after we'd been waiting for 30 mins. Gammon dry and crispy, lamb henry tough, sausages poor quality, roast uninspiring. The child's fish goujons were excellent and the belly pork was very good. Eventually got... More

We went the Moorcock over Easter 2015 and had a lovely meal, although we did have to wait 45 mins, when it arrived it was all fresh, and well presented, although it was quite expensive for a pub meal we decided to go back, Big mistake, completely different in September. We had to send back a very stringy steak and... More
