“Miserable Staff & Awful Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Staff - miserable, no smile & do not care about customer service at all.

Food - Awful! I ordered a doner kebab. The meat is so boiled and no taste at all. The fries go with the kebab is hard to chew.

Rip-off - the combination of the food quality and price seems a rip off to me.

“Busy little place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

The moorings is indeed a busy little chippy (given its correct name). It serves a variety of things from a huge menu, but at the end of the day it is just a chippy. Ate here when staying locally purely as it was the only place open within miles. We got takeaway food and I can honestly say it was not the best. Chips were okay but very very greasy, wouldn't go back in a hurry.

“Not great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

Had cake and coffee one afternoon, both very nice. Went back another day for takeout, very poor. Tasteless meat, didn't appear to be seasoned. Very disappointed with it overall.

“Totally disagree with the last review.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

We stopped in here, on our way home from the Ross County v Celtic game (which Celtic won 1-4 :-)) and the waiter was polite and very approachable. The Moorings is located just off the A82, next to the canal and is more of a sit-in cafe, rather than a restaurant but it makes a great stopping point. It was clean, the food was very good and importantly for myself, had a fully-equipped disabled toilet, which too few places have. If you're looking for a quick bite to eat, with good food and is quickly accessible, look no further than The Moorings.

“Miserable staff!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

Food fine but the staff were so miserable and, as mentioned In another review, seemed to be arguing amongst themselves making for an uncomfortable atmosphere.
