“Brilliant for families ”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Great good with range of choice
Very welcoming hit our large family group
They halved an adult portion for children which was great and a change from usual children's menus
Great to sit out watching the sunset over their valley too.
Thank you

Stayed April 2014

Decided to try The Moor Cock after reading previous reviews on TA and we weren't disappointed. The Sunday lunch was excellent; everything was homemade, locally sourced and very tasty. Portions were generous, and it was certainly value for money. The only criticism would be that the interior does look a bit tired - it is always a fine line between traditional and in need of attention. But do not let this put you off, if you are looking for a warm welcome, good hearty food and a lovely rural location then this is well worth a try.

Went here for a meal to celebrate a birthday and it was brilliant. Excellent service and the food was enjoyed by all and there were 12 of us. We were in a private room and the landlady was first class dealing with all the different orders from us. Everyone said what a great night we had and my husband and I will definitely be going again....soon.

Myself & my wife + 2 dogs were passing this pub so decided to stop for a drink. Lyn was so friendly and the premises accepted dogs which is nice to find these days as some places we try & go into do not wecolme dogs so we go elsewhere. Good range of food and people still arriving for food after 2pm when we left. Would definately stop here again when passing through the area. Well worth a visit and especially as Dog friendly.

I stopped for coffee one very warm morning when I had been driving for a long time. The lady made me coffee and served it a very delicious homemade biscuit - hardly her most lucrative customer but I was treated with great friendliness. I wasn't made to feel uncomfortable as a women traveling on her own. The Ladies loo was spotless. I intend to find out if they have rooms as it is just the sort of place to stay when you want to get away from life. The pub is surrounded by the wonderful North Pennines.

Went for a walk in Hamsterley on Monday and had a quick lunch here first. Good food at a very reasonable price served quickly. I had chilli con carne in a baked potato and my wife had a steak sandwich.

I heard off a friend that The moorcock had reopened and changed to a steak and charcoal grill bar. We went midweek and had the special which was very tasty, a good size and a reasonable price. The next night I was back again with my Fiancee and had another fantastic meal. The meat is supplied by Joe Simpsons butchers so you know the standard is very high.
Highly recommend this place for a nice relaxed friendly meal with good quality food.
