My husband & I visited in september for a spot of weekday lunch and cannot fault the standard of the food and service. We opted for the Roast beef dinner (which is served as a small one or a large) & I have to say the small one was more than ample. There is an extensive Lunchtime menu along with... More

We booked the sports side of the Half Moon for my 1920's style Bachelorette Party and my friends and daughter dressed up the whole room to a Gatsby Style decor. I walked in to a transformed intimate room with an exciting atmosphere. We didn't have food as my guests weren't particularly bothered and said they'd use regular bar meal menu... More

Recently refurbished village pub which can get quite busy at weekends. Eat in the restaurant or in the bar with at least two real ales on tap. Good menu with all the pub classics and all cooked fresh. Me and my missus visited last Saturday and the pub was quite busy but the service was great. We ordered lasagna Verdi... More

A pleasant surprise from our last visit 3 years ago in that they have decorated. Food was as we remembered, hearty, plentiful and hot. Great value for with a decent menu. One thing I did notice is that the main restaurant has too many tables and we found that some seats were impossible to sit on if there were people... More
