We went to Moggs on Easter Day, the day after our 50th Wedding celebrations. It was a delight, The country setting is beautiful, the welcome and the service immaculate. Too say my lamb shank was superb is an under-estimate, an opinion shared of their meals by the other three at the table. We visited again with our daughter a few... More

Hi Leanne You are absolutely accurate in your review of last Sunday's lunch. We were indeed short staffed so tried to keep our numbers manageable but a few tables increased their numbers on the day and we tried our best. We apologize for your disappointing visit and more so for the hair in your food - totally unacceptable! I would... More

If the lengthy drive up the jeep track was party of the country experience, it worked! Well worth it for a delightful and leisurely lunch. Food choices were great with real opportunity for food envy. Service was friendly in this quaint and quirky spot.

Laid back ambience with absolutely fabulous food. We were a group of 17 adults and 2 children and every single person could not stop talking about their food. Many of us had the linefish of the day and many said it was the nicest fish dish that they have ever had. Great service. We will be back! A memorable meal.

A picturesque setting high in the mountains with lovely gardens and views. After drinks in the garden, our table inside also afforded pleasant view of the valley. An enjoyable meal with a distinctly unusual menu and a very personal service. Will definitely return with friends next year.
