I was hoping to award a 4 or 5 but was slightly disappointed today as the service level was chaotic! The mature waitress took our order efficiently and then it went down hill from there. The food arrived quickly but they made errors with the meals. The lamb was covered in gravy but the meat was very dry in texture... More

I had wanted to visit the Anderton Boatlift for some time and did so today , the first decent day of the week. I booked lunch at The Moorings restaurant and my wife and I were warmly welcomed on our arrival. The food was simple but excellent and very plentiful. The interior of the restaurant offers views over the marina... More

Absolutely delicious meals a real gem of a place. Mitchellin worthy. We are vegetarian and we had the vegetable and blue cheese crumble and plaice stuffed with crab and prawn my mouths watering remembering how delicious it was. The starters were amazing too. Prices are really reasonable we paid more at a harvester for microwaved meals.

Have visited The Moorings many times over the past few years and have never failed to be impressed with both the standard of food and service. The restaurant is next to and overlooks the Anderton Marina and the canal boats and also close to Anderton Boat Lift. It's an unusual single storey building and doesn't give many clues to the...

We are going to moor here in 2017. so we decided to see what The Moorings had to offer. The small restaurant is nicely decorated and very clean and tidy. We ordered from the Sunday lunch menu. The plates were a bit on the small side but the potatoes and vegetables were served separately, extra gravy came along with a... More

We thought we'd pop in for lunch while waiting for our canal boat for a quick bite to eat. Wrong... while the menu looked reasonable the prices were high for what is was, but hey ho, start of our holiday. We ordered paninis which cook almost 40 minutes to arrive, that was once we'd been able to place our order.... More

We have been to the Moorings many many times. This is the place to go for quality service. The food is fantastic. The service is excellent. Over the years, we have NEVER had anything other then 100% from them in every respect. I can't say that about many places.

Visited 16/102016.. At first glance it looks like a little café' and then you walk through the door to a very pleasant little restaurant. We had driven past so many times and then we heard by word of mouth that the food was very good. About four weeks ago we had a little visit for lunch. We ordered from the... More
