My wife and I generally avoid The Moorhen due poor experiences in the past, however we decided to give it another go. what a terrible waste of money it was!. When we arrived the restaurant appeared to be quite busy, however it turns that it was only about three quarters full and one quarter of the tables just hadn't been... More

Seems to get worse with each visit and when you think it can't get worse it does!! Food often overcooked and waits are far too long. Last time took 2 hours to serve our table of 2

We ordered starters and mains the brought the food all out together so we sent our mains back and they said they would remake the burgers when we was ready. When the burgers came out the were cold and had been sitting under the heat lamp for a long time.

Great meal every time we visit. Staff are friendly and efficient and nothing is too much trouble for them. Great in the summer too with the outdoor play area as well as the indoor play area.

Great venue to moor up and have a meal and drink. Great value for money and great views. Kids welcome too although sometimes early evening there can be a few too many.
