The food was fabulous and served on time. But then getting a dessert menu and the check too nearly 45 minutes total. With better service, the place would be terrific.

After reading the reviews of the New Moon on here, my partner and I were very keen to try it. The service was very good, nothing was too much trouble. As we went on a Tuesday night, the restaurant was very quiet. There was no atmosphere, everyone was whispering in hushed voices. The menu looked appealing, with a good variety of options. I had the blue cheese and asparagus soup, followed by the Moroccan tagine. The soup tasted of neither blue cheese or asparagus, and while the tagine was nice, it tasted like something I could cook at home from a jar. The wine on offer was good value, and very pleasant. I can't fault the staff, they did everything they could to make our evening enjoyable. It was just let down by the fairly average food. I would not bother going again.

We enjoyed the early bird £13.50 for 2 courses for a family birthday meal. Aubergine starter was good. The only negative point is that there wasn't much for kids on the menus.

If you are the sort of person who frequents the all-you-can-eat-for-five euros/pounds/dollars sort of establishment, this restaurant is not for you. A thoughtful and interesting menu, deliciously cooked food, portions just right if you want to sample one of their delicious puddings afterwards. We took the early supper option with starter and main course, for a very reasonable price. (We recommend the upstairs room for its pleasant atmosphere.) Friendly and efficient service, free wi-fi and if you go in the coming weeks you can catch a fine exhibition of portraits by Helen Perkins upstairs.
