We booked a table for four as we were staying locally. It was our first visit but won’t be our last! The pub internally is immaculate, with really good Covid-19 practices in place. We ordered three steak and ale pies and one scampi, various drinks...and a bottle of wine. The pie was absolutely delicious and I’m assured the scampi was too. We went on to have a dessert, one sticky toffee pudding and one raspberry cheesecake, which again were both delicious. I can’t recommend this pub highly enough. It has a really lovely atmosphere, really fabulous food and was very reasonably priced. All four of us said we wouldn’t hesitate to return. Thanks so much for the wonderful food and service!More

Stumbled across possibly my most favourite pub ever… and I’ve been to a lot! Fantastic food, friendly welcoming staff and relaxing atmosphere. The best part, dog friendly! It’s worth a visit!

Off the beaten track, the Half Moon is well worth the couple of extra miles for an evening meal or a Sunday lunch. The inn is cosy and clean, with a warm welcome from Neil and Carol, and serves excellent home-cooked pub classics. From a...good range of traditional options, their exceptional steak and ale pie is my favourite. Depending on the day of your visit you’ll find a specials board with curries, fish and chips, tasty steaks of various sizes or a proper Sunday roast beef dinner. With very well kept Tetley’s to wash it down, what’s not to like? The well stocked bar usually has another guest ale e.g. Osset Blond or a Wold Top beer. A limited takeaway service has been available during lockdown 2 but I am already looking forward to sitting down again next month to enjoy a pie and a pint - cheers!!More

We live locally and had not been in this pub for years. Following a recommendation, 4 of us enjoyed a great evening in a very friendly atmosphere. The steak was excellent, as were all the tasty bits served with it. The men very much enjoyed...the beer. We were really pleasantly surprised just how nice this place is and wonder why we have not been for so long?! This is definitely the place to visit if you are in the area and you want a delicious meal in a pleasant country pub with good beer and friendly welcoming staff. Do hope the word spreads about this place, they certainly deserve to do well. Thanks Half Moon!More

Went for Sunday lunch yesterday, our first time there. First impressions of the actual place were very good. Everything done properly with regards to Covid. The lady behind the bar, the owner I think, was very welcoming and showed us to our table. Because of...Covid, everything was table service. The roast beef and all the trimmings was absolutely cooked to perfection, the beef was very tender. I can honestly say that the roast potatoes were the best I’ve ever had eating out. Golden and crunchy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. There were 4 different veggies , all good and plenty of gravy and of course home made Yorkshire puds. I didn’t have a desert, but my husband had the homemade lemon cheesecake. He said it was delicious. It certainly looked good. Future Sunday lunches out will be taken at the Half Moon of that I have no doubt. Highly recommended.More

This is a proper village pub, warm and welcoming and treasured by the locals. We decided to indulge on the steak night, there’s a good range of sizes from 8oz. to a massive 22oz. Everything was beautifully cooked, in our case medium rare was spot...on with great chips and sides. Definitely recommended!More
