We have used this place many times , our friends who dined with us even more so, however we left very disappointed last night. We left unsure if the place has changed hands as the food was not up to the usual & none of the staff we have seen here before. We noted the prices had sneaked up a... More

Sadly these were let down by the slow service blamed on the fact that there was a large party in! Also they ran out of hollandaise sauce! How? One of party was particularly dissatisfied with her steak but no apology was made! Sorry probs wouldn't recommend a Friday night, perhaps we were unlucky.

Went to the High Moor for Sunday lunch a couple of weeks ago for my Dad's birthday. Food was excellent as usual but service was a little slower than in previous visits, but I haven't seen it as busy before. It just goes to show what a popular choice of restaurant it is. Will certainly visit again. Thank you.

We used to visit High Moor on a regular basis but haven't been for about 10 years. We decided to revisit for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. The cosy atmosphere is lovely, the bar area very comfortable and the restaurant formal but not stuffy. The food was superb, scallops with black pudding, duck beast, ginger pudding & cheese... More

Lovely place to eat. The staff are amazing. Very warm welcome and so attentive. The starters were delicious. Unfortunately I had Wild Duck which was difficult to cut and impossible to chew and swallow. I was offered an alternative meal without a fuss and the neck of lamb was lovely. Veg and roast potatoes were cooked to perfection.

The lunch menu does vary and there is always plenty to choose from. The service is memorable, attentive, discrete and Is a large part of the restaurants charm. The decor is traditional and... More

Was really looking forward to my evening out here was told how special it was with a la carte menu. My hopes were dashed on seeing the starter which looked bland and tasted the same as it looked followed by my battered fish ( the batter was soggy) very disappointed I didn't bother with the sweet the whole experience was...

We went with a group of 11 and we booked before hand and they fit us in well. The food was great would recommend the melon starter as it is very modern and unique, lots of parking and nice old school building.

An excellent evening. Warm greeting; a choice to two different free champagne cocktails; faultless 3 course meal £45 each. The food, as always, was delicious and perfectly cooked. The table was sprinkled with tiny hearts. My only criticism is the white lighting was too bright - lower lights and candles would have created the perfect atmosphere on such a romantic... More
