Went for a meal here with my family tonight and it was an excellent experience. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Very good service too. We’ll be back again very soon .

This place is a really good, well maintained and attractive pub. The food is largely home made and the blue cheese burger is quite literally the best burger I have ever had. Good service, high standards and quality food. This was my first visit but...I'll be back soon. This is my new favourite local.More

Here is the but... Food is consistantly great, however, it's been the same menu for about 20 years. Even the rotating specials are fairly regular. Quite boring if you're a regular. We stopped going as often due to being bored of the offering. Could do...with a shakeup with some new items being added. One "new" addition seems to be swapping the absolutely fantastic chunky chips on the burger menu with what looks like bought in frozen skinny fries, odd to roll back a great product with a less quality product for the same price. The new outdoor seating area is great! Probably the best beer garden in the area. Less of an issue now but really needs outdoor heating because once the sun goes it's pretty chilly. Would be happy to spend a whole evening outside if warmer. Do I recommend a visit? Yeah sure!More

We have visited the Half Moon 4 times in the last few months and on every occasion the food and service has been excellent. Our latest visit was yesterday lunchtime (09/10/2020) - 3 of us visited and we each had a main course. The food...was freshly prepared and excellent. We chose Gammon, Fish & Chips and Chilli con Carne and all were piping hot and served within 20 minutes. Each meal had a selection of fresh produce and are recommended. The table service was excellent too with prompt service when required. Definitely worth another visit. Top marks to the chef and bar staff.More

Had a very good meal here for 4 people with a really good varied menu considering the covid restrictions they are working to. Meals were very good value and extremely tasty and portions were extremely good sizes. Service was excellent.

We decided to try one of the local pubs we haven’t visited previously. I love the atmosphere and the look of the pub inside. It’s a proper English pub which isn’t run by a brewery (as far as I could see). We visited on a...Wednesday afternoon and as such I ordered a hot beef sandwich which was perfect. The portion size was what I was expecting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband ordered the steak pie which he also enjoyed. We have booked again for Sunday dinner so may write another review after our next visit !More
