user reviews of the Half Moon, Whitwell Common

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

a copy of a letter ive sent to chef and brewer....use this place at your peril a shocking rip off.
Tonight i had the misfortune of visiting the half moon public house in worksop...this is one of your pubs..There was 5 of us and we wanted 2 bills ie 1 bill for 3 people and 1 bill for 2. we thought that your menu was very varied and tasty but expensive.When the meals arrived only the 3 people in my party received our meal,,,we had eaten it by the time the other 2 people in our party had received there meal.
Your portion sizes are very poor,,,,i had the same amount of chips as my 11 year old boy.All 5 meals were pathetically inadequate and did not justify the hefty price tag.
when i brought up the subject with the waitress,i was told sorry but thats the way it is.Lovely eh the chips were frozen rubbish if she had just gone and got all 5 of us more chips i would not now be rubbishing your pub to anybody who has an ear.
on paying, my mother brought the fact of portion sizes up with the girl taking our money was are not the 1st ones to complain im new here and people complain all the time.

value for money 0
quality of food 5
portion sizes 0
professionalism 0
if you do not sort out these issues you might as well shut.

i feel ripped off not once but twice,,,because after the small mouthful of food at your place i then had to go to mcdonalds to fill my family
i am furious and i shall be advising anybody with an ear not to go to your public house as you rip them off

please contact me if you wanna know anything else (i bet you wont)giving us our money back would be a start

Just been to the half moon, had a refurbishment a couple of months ago and hadnt been since it changed from 2 for 10, its now a chef and brewer I think and it was a lot nicer. Its been done out inside really nicely and is a lot brighter and cleaner. The staff were lovely, really attentive but without being in your face and the food was a lot nicer than it used to. They had some really nice specials on too, offering something a little different, I had Guinea Fowl and my Husband had Pheasant, and reasonable prices for the quality of food. Would definately reccomend a visit.

Terrible facilities. Didn't even get as far as ordering before my friend and I decided to leave!

Decided to go to the loo before settling down to order, and my visit to the loo's was enough to put me off the place!

4 cubicles - 2 couldnt be locked, in the third the loo basin was full to the brim with loo roll. in the 4th, the floor was a mess and covered in loo roll (I didn't dare venture in further). In one of the unlockable cubicles there was also an unflushed number 2.

This hardly filled us with confidence and we decided to carry on down the road to another pub!

The staff in this pub are great most of them know my wife and I by sight and we always feel very welcome. My wife and I usually stick to the same "microwave" food from here but under 10 for a meal and a drink is reasonable in my opinion.

It has recently changed to a 2 for 10, the menu is far worse (which is impressive as the old menu was pretty terrible already) and the choice is far less. Same old food and more expensive, I'll go when I see the good ole 2for1 sign up again.

closing down for refurb to become a carvery.
no more 2 for 1.
not before time in my opinion.
food was often poorly cooked & over-microwaved.

called again recently. Sunday afternoon.
Quite busy.
this place is slipping in my estimation.
no cask ales on.
most meals have that "micro-waved" look and taste. Usually overdone.
partner had chicken breasts, so tough they wouldn't even cut with the knife.
only reason they're 2 for 1 is because they're well over-priced in the first place.
very disappointed.
don't think we'll be going again, for some considerable time !
a 3 from me.

have been here a few times, as its fairly local.
a big pub out on its own on the A619[?].
it used to be just a pub a long,long time ago, but its now done out mainly as a diner, with a 2-for-1 menu. its nice enough but it can get busy at times.
I think the only cask on offer is tetley bitter.
parking available.
outdoor seating, with a play area for the kids.
