We booked for Christmas Day 2017 after we have been a frequent patron over number of years for birthdays and celebrations. High expectations I am afraid we’re not reached - especially a table of 8 @ £100/head. Firstly, told not to arrive until near 4pm...More

It didn't feel like Christmas but... You started your High Moor experience with a 'Merry Christmas' on arrival and a glass of champagne by the 7ft Christmas tree and crackling log fire. You were then taken into the restaurant with our gas fire burning, 3ft...More

Hello, I am sorry we don't have a private dining area, or a secluded table that fits 6. We have a table to the side of the restaurant but that seats 10-15 people, so wouldn't be suitable for 6. Kind regards
