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.

Why not pop in and see us soon The Moody Mare Country Pub

Went for my fathers birthday Have been many times and maybe this was an off day!!! Food just wasn’t as nice as normal? We were stuck right round the corner out of the way. Tap water tasted of salt!!! Very disappointed unfortunately.

Valentine's menu was very enjoyable, staff were very welcoming and polite. The food was delicious and hot and just the right timing between courses. Have been here many times and each visit has been most enjoyable.

Food very good and special help from the two young ladies serving as my wife is suffering from trigeminal neuralgia which sometimes means she cannot eat or talk. What she could eat she loved and we look forward to returning when the bout is finished

Great food and surprised to find a blues brothers evening happening too. Was very loud as it was in the food area so we couldn’t chat but enjoyed the tribute act.

Another very enjoyable lunchtime spent at the Moody Mare. Our waitress was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. I was even able to chose where I wanted to sit as I had limited mobility at the moment. Thank you for a delicious vegetarian roast. We will certainly be back again.

The wait for our main meal was a bit long and considering the wait the chips were not overly warm on arrival.

One of the party ordered ice cream with the orange brioche and was given custard. We didn't have time to wait for it to be replaced.

Lovely pub with very helpful, friendly staff. They removed a chair for the high chair without being asked and gave us a table where the buggy would fit in. Food was gorgeous although the pizza was pretty standard. Lots of space around the table. Second visit in two weeks!

Staff were very friendly even tho we had to wait but it was busy.
Downside was a very noisy table next to us which meant we couldn’t hear ourselves talk but I can’t blame the restaurant for that.
Food was amazing as always.

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.
