Sunday Lunch
Formerly an 18th Century farmhouse boasting exposed beams, oak floors, exposed brickwork and oak tables. This leads to a very relaxed and cosy atmosphere with candle lit tables and real flame stoves.

The cuisine is typically modern European, classically cooked using cornerstones such as stock pots to create their sauces with a brigade that has a passion for what they do.

This is exciting times for the pub which now has a new bar serving real ale straight from the cask. Be sure to check out the website regularly to keep up with the latest events and offers.

Good evening at the Moody Mare, staff are excellent and service was great even on this busy evening with functions going on, waiting time was spot on in between courses and the food was great.

Atmosphere here is brilliant and we'll definitely be booking again soon.

Food was outstanding! We treated my elderly mum and she absolutely loved her melt-in-the-mouth fillet steak!! Our meals were also faultless. Would love to bring mum back but alas the access, steps etc is really unsuitable for those with mobility restrictions. Otherwise no complaints.

Having booked a table we were shoved in a dark corner, the table had a reserve notice on it but was not laid up and it wasn't until we got our food we had to ask for utensils. My husbands fish was okay but the roasts we had, lamb was tough, veg almost raw and whole meal was only just luke warm. The desserts were very good. Coffee turned up cold sent back and given new but not the original order of decaffeinated . It was very busy but to be honest we felt more like an inconvenience. We were given 20% off our bill.

food was good, slightly small portion, Yorkshire overcooked. we sat in the comfy chairs by the step to the rear. surprised the amount of people that trip up or down just whilst we had our meal. a small warning strip would be good for elderly people to see to prevent a fall. after all that we will come back for another meal. thank you

When we came some months ago we enjoyed what we had and didn't feel it was expensive. This time we felt it was poor value and service very slow. Although I ordered steak and ale pie I actually received steak & kidney, not great. 3 very mediocre sausages which had tough skins which the knife wouldn't cut cleanly, making the sausage meat spew out of the skin. My husband left a lot of skin on the side of the plate.

I went with a group of friends on a Friday night. There was live music. The music wasn't so loud we couldn't have a conversation. We had a lovely evening. The food and service was great.

The food was sub standard, whole plaice had been over trimmed leaving g very little fish on the bone. Steaks contained excessive quantity of gristle. One of the steaks was replaced and the replacement was just as bad. The staff did not comment or show concern with amount of gristle left on plates.

Lovely old world traditional pub feel but beautifully done, lovely ambience and absolutely excellent service, which could not be faulted at all. It did get rather warm as it was fully booked and the windows don't seem to open which was a bit of a shame. The baked camembert to share was amazing and very good value, and the squid with aoli and fishcakes were all fabulous. The only downside with the mains was that although the steaks were huge and very tasty (they are dry-aged), both the sirloin and t-bone steaks were really quite fatty so there was a lot of wastage. It was great to get a good crumble for dessert and even better that it was served traditionally with custard and the cheesecake was very flavoursome. There were a good selection of reasonably priced wines either by the bottle or glass. As mentioned above the service was outstanding despite it being very busy and nothing was too much trouble.

We had an excellent evening, the service staff were attentive and the food was delicious and served hot with just the right waiting time between courses. Alison David is a credit to the Moody Mare. Her singing and choice of songs were most enjoyable, a great night! We will definitely visit again and try another music night.
