'Moorings' is a small Bistro, so booking is generally recommended. This was our second visit, and we were not disappointed. The staff - especially the Scottish lady - are friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about their food and wine. The venue is lovely, tasteful and understated, very comfortable (with some outside tables under awnings) overlooking the lovely small harbour and bay. The menu is varied, but is particularly strong on seafood. All three of our party had different starters, mains (Lamb Tajine, Lemon Sole and Chicken Supreme) and desserts, all were excellent, and reasonably priced considering the high quality. We were recommended the 'Special' of the week, 'Passimento' from the Veneto, both the red and white were excellent, very velvety, very crisp! We will return!

Ate here this evening with a couple of friends, very lucky to book a table yesterday as it was really busy. I had the chicken supreme with cider sauce & veg; my friends had the lamb tagine and the pork fillet with mango. All 3 meals were delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a 40 minute wait for food as the mains seem to be served in table order and we didn't have starters; however this wasn't a problem as we had drinks and were offered garlic bread whilst we waited. Looking forward to visiting again, would maybe ask for a window table next time as they have a lovely view.

Had supper here in this wonderful place on the terrace overlooking the river in September!! Rugs are thoughtfully provided should you feel chill at all. The food here is fresh beautifully cooked and very tasty. Linguine with past and chilli whilst my wife had honey glazed goats cheese eclair. For mains we had the spicy lamb tagine with couscous and fish of the day, sea bass with Provençal mash with crab dressing. Just superb. Dog friendly on the terrace too. The staff are all warm and friendly and it's a place we would highly recommend . A fantastic supper.

This was our first ever visit to the bistro and I’m glad we did. It is a small bistro, so would recommend you book a table. The food was excellent with my wife having the lamb and myself having the chicken. The menu is small but still has a great choice. Service was great.

Sadly having been to this bistro many times and having wonderful service and friendly staff tonight was very disappointing. I have to admit not the usual staff (Scottish Lady) waiting on tonight. Waited one hour for mains and on asking for desert was told I did tell you we had sold out!!! In a stern voice. Too much attitude and a friendly smile would have not gone a miss. I did enjoy my main course although there was a large chicken bone in the risotto element of the dish.
