The Full Moon at Morton

Main Street Morton Near Southwell Nottinghamshire NG25 0UT 01636 830 251

We say

The pretty little village of Morton sits between a branch railway line and the fast–flowing River Trent amidst the fertile farmland that stretches northeast from the suburbs of Nottingham. Perhaps surprisingly, this tranquil countryside witnessed several blood-curdling battles in medieval times, but nowadays it’s a pretty placid region, with a necklace of picturesque villages, of which Morton is perhaps the most charming. The main reason for venturing out to Morton is, however, to seek out the Full Moon, a tastefully modernised, redbrick country pub that offers an outstanding British menu focused on local produce and traditional, almost old-fashioned cuisine, albeit cooked with a modern twist and a contemporary eye towards presentation. So reckon on such delights as ham hock salad and corned beef hash followed by Lincolnshire sausage, mash and braised onions or braised blade of beef with silverskin onions and Savoy cabbage. Pretty well-priced too.
