absolutely delicious
That was absolutely delicious! I had a tandoori grilled paneer salad - I would rarely order a salad out but the combination of ingredients sounded really unusual. It was expertly prepared, the balance of flavours was perfect. The chef clearly knows what they are doing!!

So after not visiting this pub for some time, today when we did we where pleasantly surprised to find it’s completely different than it used to be….. we are talking years here! Firstly we where created by a super friendly barman, who advised us that it we wanted to eat in the garden then that was fine just had to order at the bar…. No problem for us. We ordered two drinks and grabbed a menu and proceeded to go find a table in the garden. The garden was amazing, lots of seats nice igloo style seating and plenty of grass! We ordered mussels and caesar salad, when they came out they where amazing…. Absolutely delicious 🤤 We will definitely be returning and I urge anyone reading this review to go and try for yourself

Food was well presented and really tasty. Our highlight of the evening was our waiter Jack, he was extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly, but not too friendly, my mum(age 88!) particularly enjoyed he's attention to the details and how lovely Jack was, we felt so comfortable we will definitely be returning and if we are lucky enough Jack will be serving us again, he is a great access to your company, please express our gratitude to Jack and all your amazing team.

First time we've visited since the new ownership. We weren't disappointed! The new look interior has breathed life back into the building whilst retaining its character and charm. The service was excellent - friendly and helpful. And the food? Oh wow! Absolutely gorgeous! Such a different and varied selection too. I would urge any foodie to go sample The Moat's offerings!
