Will Larter left this review about The Half Moon

Strange that the Half Moon's inn sign depicts a crescent moon, which is of course less than half. Whatever, this building looks like an old coaching inn with more than half now used for purposes other than the consumption of alcohol. In fact, what is left would be a similar proportion to a crescent moon. A fairly small front bar and a room behind with a much smaller bar counter, plus a pool table, darts board and gaming machines. The front bar has two hand pumps, serving Bass and Marstons EPA. I went for the Bass, which was deceptively fresh and a nice change after the dreadful beer I'd suffered in the nearby BeerHeadZ. However, it soon became apparent that the glass was a little smelly and the beer had a faint banana-ish flavour. Oh dear.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Half Moon Inn

Fairly basic two-bar town-centre boozer with a narrow frontage. Unusually, both rooms are slightly split level, with a street-level seating / live music area in front of the main bar and a pool table at the back of the smaller rear one. Just Bass (£2.80) on the solitary handpump, but it was worth waiting a few minutes for a fresh pint as the barman changed the empty barrel.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Half Moon Inn

Situated next door to the famous pie shop and dates from 1851. A good locals pub consisting of a front lounge with a flag stone floor and lead light windows. The bar to the rear has a pool table and friut machines. Only one ale served which was Bass. Locals were friendly and chatty.
