Our first visit since re opening. No teething problems apparent. Very tasty meal with lots of choice, pleasant helpful staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Several tables outside. Easy parking. Slightly gloomy decor inside but chairs comfy and lots of space. Hand dryer in ladies could have been improved otherwise nicely appointed toilet area. A positive experience, we shall return.

Despite hearing lots of mixed reviews since changing hands we decided to try the Moonrakers for a family meal, we were not disappointed, it has been tastefully refurbished and has a lovely atmosphere to relax and eat in, the staff were warm and welcoming explaining how and where to order food and drinks, we waited 10 minutes for our meal which was perfectly presented and tasted as good as it looked, there is something on the menu for all tastes and very reasonably priced, we had a very enjoyable evening which we will be repeating again soon!

Used facilities for a lunch meeting had a very warm welcome from the manager James and made my small party feel very welcome
Establish has some private seating out the way of main dinning area so excellent to have a casual meeting. All staff were very smart and polite and very professional we all had coffee to kick us off which was served very efficiently and coffee was of a very good quality very high street and served very similar to a well know brand ! Excellent !
Nothing was too much trouble for the moonraker staff and my small party were very appreciative for the first class service we received.
We all had lunch and menu choice was excellent and food quality was superb recommend the homemade burgers and steaks were of a very high quality melted in the mouth!
The waiting and bar staff supervised my party very attentive at all times

We have just visited Moonrakers Devizes, and had a really great time. James the Manager greeted us, sat us down at our table and proceeded to give fab service along with really lovely staff. The food was excellent and great value for money.We have heard reports of a poor opening. Give them a break! They were expected to serve 100 people all at the same time. That would not happen in the real world. Well done. We will def vidit again soon.

I was so looking forward trying this new steakhouse in the town that opened in July this year and went last week for the first time. the old Moonrakers pub has been taken over by new owners and they have done a fantastic job on the revamp to the inside and outside, full marks for this, this however is where the praise ends.
we waited well in excess of an hour for the food and when it came it was pretty awful, the bread was stale, the salad tasted nothing like salad and the meat was cremated. The service was virtually non-existant, all in all a very poor experience. I know they have just opened and are no doubt experiencing teething problems but it is no excuse as the first few weeks is when you need to impress most. May try again later in the year but not sure.
