Our first visit to the Moon and Sixpence in 2017, having visited several times previously and again it did not disappoint. The quality and the presentation of the dishes continues to be excellent. We look forward to many happy returns to this outstanding restaurant.

We are celebrating my mum's 90th and are looking for somewhere that can host a family gathering of 12 adults and 3 boys for Saturday lunch. Do you have a private room or quieter space that would work for this?
