Very friendly and welcoming. I cannot rate... More

I chose steak which did come with big... More

Recently re-launched as The Moon Highgate (having been The Moon and The New Moon over many years), it still offers reasonably priced excellent eating from a new menu. We had lamb, cooked nicely pink and very tender and 24 hours cooked pork but there is a select choice of fish and vegetarian dishes. The main dishes came with some interesting... More

From unlocking the front door when closed to make us a reservation the staff were friendly. The restaurant was busy, we were given our drinks orders pretty quickly but the service dipped slightly for the food orders. The staff more than mDe up for this, the lamb was delicious and I'm told the venison was excellent. The plates were cleared... More

This the third time we have been to the New Moon. This time, on looking at their web site it was with some trepidation that we noticed it was under new ownership. However, reviews on Trip Advisor were positive so we made the booking; glad we did. The standard has not dropped, the food remains excellent with good service from... More

Ate here from the set Christmas menu with work colleagues in early December. Had heard good things but never been before but would recommend the place. We had a variety of the dishes on offer and all were very good. Friendly staff and good central location.
