This was a true experience with amazing food. Each meal was very tasty and immaculately presented. I recommend the lamb as it was the most tender I have tasted. The wine list is very well selected but it was the atmosphere that set the tone for a wonderful evening. We will come back.

This must be the biggest size of platter I have seen in my life. Loved how the manager offered to swap the chips with more ribs so we didn't have to order more ribs. And the high chair they provided was the cleanest I have ever seen in a restaurant! Kudos to them! Although I must say we were confused with the bill at the end because apparently the price on the menu was for one person - we thought it was for the whole dish. Still affordable for two people but would be better if the price was clearer. Cheers for everything!

Absolutely wonderful dining experience at Moorings restaurant, lovely attentive staff that were happy to accommodate small changes to a meal ordered. Beautiful lamb pizza, nachos, roast vege salad and a lamb burger were ordered and everyone was happy with their meals. Good range on the kids menu and easy dining in one of the bar booths. Thanks so much team keep up the great work!

Booked for lunch. Had blue cod meal, pie, Moroccan chicken & nachos. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Also ordered desserts - banoffee pie & lava cake. Wouldn’t order the banoffee pie again as was very plain, however lava cake was outstanding. Service could have been more attentive & quicker but the two staff members on were pleasant enough.

The Moorings is always very pleasant due to the ample parking and how clean and tidy the restaurant is. They have slightly changed there menu which we enjoyed. All the lunches were around $20 and were of a very reasonable size for a lunch. My husband had the flintstone pie which to be honest was sooo nice I wished I had ordered it myself. I had the spare ribs which were very nice. Chatty friendly staff made this a very pleasant lunch

We received excellent service from the moment we arrived. Very accommodating staff who were attentive, polite, gave us time to peruse the menu and provided colouring in pencils and paper for our fellow 4 year old diner.
The food was excellent, trust me when I say I don't say that often however I had the scallops in a main size with a side salad. The scallops were cooked perfectly and all the flavours danced in my mouth, outstanding. The side salad was fresh and although it had a dressing the dressing had a great flavour. My father had the steak and loved every mouthful. The childrens platter was a perfect choice for a fussy child who happily ate fresh carrots, apple, grapes, cheese and cracks and a sausage roll.

We will be back! Thank you for a really good evening out.
