    What a wonderful pocket tucked away in Moffat! We went there to support and spend time with our son-in-law and daughter,who was the artist performing. From the start, the staff there were so pleasant and accommodating- watching them with other patrons, they treated everyone kindly and we're very genuine. One of the staff that looked after our table went over and above her duty to find not only 1 but 3 biscuits for my husband to have with his pot of tea! The menu is minimal, but, each dish was delicious and cooked perfectly. Cannot fault this place and would definitely come again.

    Noise was a big issue and a number of patrons left due to the rowdy and crass group at the rear of the courtyard. Lots of swearing and very very loud.

    Love, love the Pocket. Had great spicy margaritas. Had been so looking forward to the Barramundi Curry (had it 8 weeks ago and haven’t stopped raving about it) however the curry was lacking in the bold flavours I loved last time. The barramundi was fabulous though.
