This is a beautiful building, well maintained and decorated inside and out. I'd definitely go back in the summer for drinks overlooking the river. Our Sunday lunch however was decidedly mediocre - very cheap looking sausages for the kids and my roast beef was tough. Coupled with old tasting veg and gravy with no flavour at all, I only ate...

We went here for Valentines night. The atmosphere was nice , the staff were nice and attentive. We ordered olive tapenade, olive oil and bread to share, a huge bread board arrived with far too much bread on - I suggested to my husband that we could offer it round it was so much. My husband ordered the duck and... More

Been to the Half Moon several times now, and have never been disappointed. Most recently went in on a Saturday lunchtime and was lucky to get a table in front of the gorgeous woodburner. The menu is typical pub fayre, with one or two twists, just done really, really well. Portion sizes are great too. It seems these days you... More

Although food pre booked, long wait before starters came and then long wait for mains. Food ok, not great by any means. The place was full and other parties were happening (could be over booking problem). Staff helpful and friendly and on the whole no one too upset.

Called in at the Half Moon the day after boxing day late in the afternoon. There were three of us. Staff were very friendly and the place was very clean. When our food arrived it looked amazing. Everthing was freshly made and piping hot. We all really enjoyed every part of our meals. My mother-in-law said the scampi was the... More

Good pub food in a lovely located. We visited after cycling. Recently renovated. Good choice of food on the menu. Sharing platter was very good. It does get busy during the summer months as it overlooks the river.

Visited yesterday 30th October for lunch for 7 persons, the location & setting for the hotel is great, for lunch I had roast beef meal, just under £10, the centre piece of the meal was an oversized blown up Yorkshire Pudding smothered in a thick gravy, under which you would find the beef, potatoes and vegetables, although warm, I prefer...

We were in luck when we found that this pub could fit us in for dinner tonight. We had walked passed it several times over the weekend and could see it was extremely popular but, as it turned out, this beautiful autumnal Sunday evening was actually quiet once everyone had headed home ready for the week ahead. The view across... More

We usually go to The Shakespeare as we can't be bothered to drive all the way round to the sister pub The Half Moon. But this time The Shakespeare was fully booked, so we thought we would give it a go. Glad we did. Nice decor pleasantly surprised us and the service I'd say was ok. The food was great... More
