Hmmm.... it has been a while since I visited so this may be dated. It was alright, a really nice pub, full of character with an exposed locals snug, the food was actually quite good and the service was... acceptable I am usually quite positive about GK pubs (They serve Abbot!) However this one was big, busy and lacking in atmosphere, which I found sadly lacking. The garden was a little wet on my visit, I was (In all honesty) a little damp and the fire was not roaring (WHY NOT IN DECEMBER?????) The Abbot was good and it did what I hoped but I left wanting more.... but sadly, maybe not from here. I probably will return but I am not sure when as I do not live locally and did not get the chance subsequently. I will have to be honest though and say this visit occurred December 2012 so many things may have changed and I hope for the better.(5 then!)

Needs a new manager and staff - they don't have a clue!

Large, popular Greene King pub on the Thorley estate.

Serves the usual pub food, most meals under �10, don't expect high quality though. 2 meals for �8 before 8pm is probably the best deal they do. Waiting times for food may be quite long at peak periods.


Greene King IPA, Abbot Ale and Belhaven best are the bitters. Kronenburg and Fosters lager on sale too. Usual selection of spirits and softs. Strongbow, magners and kopparberg are the ciders.

Beer well-kept and well priced for the area at �2.40 a pint of IPA. Ale has been known to run out before, due to the volume of customers but this is very rare. Possibly the cheapest pub in the Stortford area, the Marne down the road might lay claim to this title too!

== Atmosphere ==

The Harvest moon is an old building with exposed beams, yet manages to get the old/modern balance just about right. Carpets and a modern floor by the bar compliment the historic features well.

This pub gets very busy in the summer, both daytime and evening. Client�le are a mixed bunch, older people and families in the day, and often younger people from the local area at night. Staff are friendly and talkative.

No separate rooms but the pub is split up into different areas, with bar stools and a TV to the right, leather sofas near the main entrance and larger tables for eating to the right.

Clean and tidy appearance throughout. This pub is looked after well.

==Other Notes ==
Heated smoking courtyard to the rear.
Large car park to the front.
Opens at 12 midday, closes disappointingly at 11pm (somewhat limited by the residences surrounding the pub)

Took the dog for a walk in the spring and stopped off for a pint, sitting outside. All of a sudden a hail storm started and the miserable git of a landlord wouldn't let me, dog and kids shelter in the side entrance! Said we were blocking a fire exit, as if we wouldn't have been the first ones out if the place caught fire.
