I'm not sure if the Moat has changed ownership or been turned into a franchise but it's definitely changed. The food wasn't great at all. Neither in taste or presentation did it appeal. I had a steak and tanglefoot pie which they've always done and used to appear home made, this is no longer. Looks and tastes like a frozen... More

Service was totally disjointed and unprofessional For main course we both ordered the steak and ale pie and to say the pastry was hard is an understatement. Luckily the contents were good but the accompanying mash carrots and cabbage were worse than school dinner standards. Definitely a no-go!

We ordered 2 lunches of steak and pie both with chips, but unfortunately the chips came out hot but were tasteless and soft. We complained to the waitress who bought out some more but again these were bland and tasteless, needless to say we were still charged full price even though we didn't eat all of the meal. Not impressed... More

I can't believe some of the bad reviews on this place.... We went on a busy Saturday evening. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The service was good and the food was lovely. Very reasonably priced as well, especially the wines. would definitely recommend.

We visited The Moat for a family birthday lunch, we were in a group of 16. The restaurant/pub itself is lovely, nice and warm with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Unfortunately the service and quality of food let the place down and I certainly wouldn't recommend it. We ordered starters which arrived quite quickly and were nice enough but they tried... More

The Moat is relatively close (by car) to Trosley Country Park. After a family walk with some friends and a hoard of hungry children, we discovered this pub by chance. It was a revelation! The staff didn't raise eyebrows at our muddy boots, the service was very efficient; we didn't even have the chance to finish a board game before... More

The atmosphere is old and worldly and up to date at the same time. Waiting staff cannot be faulted, friendly and obliging. Having 4 young children with us, the outside area with an easy assault course was most welcome to burn off some of their energy. Now to the food which I am afraid was not up to standard, The...
