Fantastic place with great food and an even better team running it. Over a number of months we have progressed from the occasional pint on a Friday afternoon after work, to turning it into our local (even if it is a couple of miles away). Not had a bad meal here yet, and we always feel welcome by the extremely... More

This is in a superb spot right on river. We were not told that no one was on sight until 5pm but a quick call and someone was with us in 20 minutes. No staff on sight during day so if you do have any problems then have to wait until pub opens at 5pm or call the number which... More

I have eaten here twice in the past three years. The first time I didn't review. But this time I feel I have to. We went on a Sunday for the carvery. The food was exceptionally bad. I had a prawn and salmon salad in which there were 4 prawns and some pretty awful chemical tasting cash and carry mayonnaise.... More

This is a beautiful building, well maintained and decorated inside and out. I'd definitely go back in the summer for drinks overlooking the river. Our Sunday lunch however was decidedly mediocre - very cheap looking sausages for the kids and my roast beef was tough. Coupled with old tasting veg and gravy with no flavour at all, I only ate...

We went here for Valentines night. The atmosphere was nice , the staff were nice and attentive. We ordered olive tapenade, olive oil and bread to share, a huge bread board arrived with far too much bread on - I suggested to my husband that we could offer it round it was so much. My husband ordered the duck and... More

Been to the Half Moon several times now, and have never been disappointed. Most recently went in on a Saturday lunchtime and was lucky to get a table in front of the gorgeous woodburner. The menu is typical pub fayre, with one or two twists, just done really, really well. Portion sizes are great too. It seems these days you... More

Although food pre booked, long wait before starters came and then long wait for mains. Food ok, not great by any means. The place was full and other parties were happening (could be over booking problem). Staff helpful and friendly and on the whole no one too upset.

Called in at the Half Moon the day after boxing day late in the afternoon. There were three of us. Staff were very friendly and the place was very clean. When our food arrived it looked amazing. Everthing was freshly made and piping hot. We all really enjoyed every part of our meals. My mother-in-law said the scampi was the... More
