On Tripadvisor, the restaurant has received a perfect five star rating and over 575 reviews- 90 per cent of which are ‘excellent’.

One happy customer said: “This was our third visit to Moor Hall. It’s interesting how there are things that are reassuringly similar but plenty of innovations that keep the place fresh.

“The whole food experience was about 16 courses .. ranging from small snacks to the main course (duck). I love the use of flowers and flavours. Attention to detail is stunning.

“Every course is presented differently with plenty of clever table-side theatrics to explain the food and present it. The carrots and tomatoes dishes are signatures and were delicious.”

Another only had positive things to say about their “outstanding” stay.

One person wrote: “We stayed for a night in the Bramble Suite and also dined in the restaurant with the 8 course menu.

“I had the pescatarian menu and husband the meat. Both were very similar and both were perfect in flavour and presentation. They were each wonderfully explained by each waiter so we knew exactly what we were getting and even where it had come from.

“The food was outstandingly brilliant in flavour and presentation.”
