Another one of the quarterly series of dinners enjoyed by three work colleagues over the past six years. Another excellent meal. I'm not sure how they achieve this level of consistency, but I'm very glad they do. The food is well prepared and presented, the staff change, but are invariably, polite, efficient and well trained, and the ambience within the... More

Hubby booked us into the restaurant to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. I can honestly say it was the nicest meal I've ever had. The flavours were out of this world. Staff were fantastic. Really attentive. Really enjoyed the sorbet and panacotta. Everything was cooked to absolute perfection. Definitely get what you pay for. Can't wait to go back next... More

very expensive, not much choice of starters, guests left there main course and the apple crumble is a disaster. Bill came to over £300 for the 4 of us, but this did include 2 bottles of medium priced wine

We were greeted with a lovely welcome by a very slick team- who took our orders in the bar before going through to the restaurant. As parents, we were particularly impressed that children were welcomed in both bar and restaurant. Chairs were very comfortable, food presentation was absolutely on point and most flavoursome. Portions were larger than expected and absolutely... More

Although the food was more expensive than I'd normally pay, (£45pp) it was worth every penny. The service throughout was fantastic. The food was superb. If your looking for something special this is definitely the restaurant to visit. I believe it's the best in Stafford.

My husband and I spent a truly wonderful evening at the Moathouse's Orangery Restaurant in celebration of our anniversary. We enjoyed the Saturday night gourmet evening menu as much as we expected. As always the food was absolutely exquisite both in taste and presentation. The service was excellent and attentive. We love how a visit to the Orangery is never... More
