A group of us attended the Moat House for lunch and we were not disappointed. All together good service and wonderful food. I recommend the shoulder of lamb with the mint sauce. Nice staff and surroundings.

Arrived very late due to flight delays. Very friendly and efficient staff checked me in despite the late hour and found me something to eat. I very much appreciate the staff at the Moat house! The accomodations are very nice and clean.
