Latest review:

It was exceptional to start, great venue and location. Friendly waitresses. We went on Wednesday for EOTHO and I think it got too busy for them to handle. It took 3 hours from start to finish (we were the early ones) and mistakes were made for us and other tables too (they've forgotten 2 of the dishes we ordered and then made a mistake on receipt which they rectified when we settled the bill). Sourdough was so tasty, everything else was ok. I asked for some bread to eat the rillettes with. Croquettes was a little greasy. Honeycake was suppose to have clotted cream served but it was whipped. The sole was probably the most exciting dish and unusual. They had a slightly different menu outside in the beer garden to the one inside (the had 1 different main course). No big issue but you might have had something in mind! They have a different menu all the time depending on ingredients so maybe you'll have better luck! It is a lovely venue.

Our Review of The Moorcock Inn (May 2019)

It's fair to say the The Moorcock Inn has flown a little bit under the radar as far as the major food guides go. Despite very favourable reviews from the local and indeed national press, and overwhelmingly positive Tripadvisor feedback too, only Michelin have even given the place a sniff (and even then, bestowed just the horribly ambiguous plate award) since it was relaunched by duo Aimee Turford and Alisdair Brooke-Taylor in early 2018. Not that the lack of guide recognition worried me whatsoever, I was still very much expecting an interesting meal as I made the not-inconsiderable trip with my wife for dinner on a gloriously sunny Friday evening in May....
