I must say, this could quite possibly be the best dining experience I’ve ever had. Five of us had the tasting menu and every single one of the six courses was exquisite! The food is so delicately prepared and presented and each dish looked like a work of art, and tasted even better than it looked. The service was friendly, professional and honestly delightful. It was a special celebration dinner and this was the perfect pick for it - I certainly felt special in this wonderful restaurant with beautiful food. Could not recommend highly enough!

Excellent food, charming and efficient service, calm and pleasing ambience - what's not to like? It being my wife's birthday, a beautiful chocolate greeting emerged unexpectedly from the kitchen which was a peak taste experience in itself.

Excellent staff, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We had the six course tasting menu with paired wines. The food was delicious and delightfully presented and the wines matched perfectly. All served in a charming setting, would definitely visit again.

The food here was excellent, as was the service. The only negative was the mark up on the drinks, for example £17 for a gin and tonic, making it the most expensive place I’ve ever visited for drinks.

Fantastic first time to Dan Moon restaurant. We were there for the lunch menu. Although limited (like any lunch menu), it made us choose foods we wouldn't necessarily choose from a full menu. The food was exquisite. The lamb neck fillet for main with garlic risotto was delicious. What made the experience for us was the gentleman who was front of house. (Our visit was lunchtime 09.06.18). He was provided astounding service from start to finish. Very knowledgeable about wines and passionate about the food. Absolutely fantastic value for money.

We had a 6 course tasting menu with wine. We enjoyed the food a lot. All the dishes were very good. Although, none of them was exceptional. Unfortunately, the wine pairing was only decent. I didn't like that all dishes from the tasting menu were also available a la carte.

We were celebrating our anniversary in Dan Moon restaurant. We got complimentary chocolates with a "Happy anniversary" text written with chocolate mousse. It was a nice touch from the restaurant.

We started in the bar with champagne cocktails to celebrate my wife's birthday which were imaginative and delicious. The waiter gave us the lunch menu so that we had plenty of time to make our choices. We had a choice of where to sit in the dining room. The service was attentive but not 'over the top'. The food was delicious and very well presented. We had opted for the 2 for 1 lunch and it was very good value. Staff had a good balance of friendliness and professional.

Our meal was sublime. I am always wary of tasting menus as the chef can be too self-indulgent and the food becomes over elaborate and the flavours confused. This was not the case here - everything was beautifully co-ordinated and the variety of textures and flavours harmonious. I thought the tasting menu was excellent value for money given the intricacy of the food and hours required to prepare it. Service was excellent.

The bread basket was amazing and all dishes were lovely - we did make one complaint about the main course, and this was professionally handled and well managed by the staff. Just goes to show it's sometimes not a case of never messing up, but handling it well when it happens. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Another much enjoyed lunch with an old friend. Really good to have plenty of time to enjoy three excellent courses and to catch up in a calm and pleasant environment. Customer service especially good. Thank you Gareth so much. I am just very sad that due to hotel policies we will be unable to celebrate our Golden Wedding lunch and our eldest granddaughter's 17th birthdayhere as well. As we are a party of over 8 (there are 9 of us) and therefore have to choose exactly the same starter, main, and desert (we have 2 coeliacs and 2 non red meat eaters plus 1 diabetic) it means we have to book elsewhere. So disappointing. It would have been for a Sunday lunch and it didn't occur to that this would be problematic. Luckily I have been able to find an alternative venue.
