Having just ate again at The Moon Inn last Thursday night ( steak night ) - we were aghast and saddened to read the previous review , hard to believe and definitely not in our opinion representative of this wonderful pub and its food..
We have eaten here several times since we re-discovered The Moon on New Years Eve - Michael has done a superb job in transforming both the ambience , the welcome , and the wonderful home cooked ever changing menu.
He is the perfect host , and his flair and attention to detail , coupled with friendly and efficient staff have made this a destination for us worth travelling to .
Full of plans for the pub , accommodation and the garden for the summer - Michael's enthusiasm is infectious !
We have been to one of his theme nights recently -Burn's Night ( which was excellent from both the food to the atmosphere in a packed pub of happy diners ) - and look forward to attending more.
Our steaks last week were delicious , and locally sourced - the dining room was warm and perfectly lit , and contrary to the previous reviewer , the photographs of Michael's previous career as a steward on a luxury liner are both interesting and a talking point for diners , other areas of the pub have local photographs .. and Michael is creating the perfect mix of area's to cater for all .
Having eaten and visited at other establishments in the locality , we have thoroughly enjoyed every visit - and cannot recommend The Moon highly enough ..
