Very impressed all round with the Aspinall Arms. Beautiful looking pub right on the river and the refurb is spot on, a vast improvement on the old place. The food was first class, I had the squid, chorizo and prawn salad with gespatchio dressing. The young waiter Robert was excellent, very friendly with just the right amount of attention. I have already recommended this fine eatery to friends. Clint

At a time when Britain's pubs are closing at a rate of around two-per day, setting up a new concept and persuading clientele to venture out of their usual social haunts isn't an easy task. Experience, a shared vision and an exciting marketing plan have all contributed to the success of The Lord Binning; the first location for The New Moon Pub Company, established by restaurant stalwarts, Paul Newman and David Mooney and the subsequent success of the Old Sessions House and The Hanging Gate which were opened in the second half of 2012 and The Montgomery, which opened in 2013. David Mooney has a glittering CV including an apprenticeship with Raymond Blanc and a stint as Commis Chef to Marco Pierre White. Previously Chef Patron of the Belle Epoque in Knutsford, David is recognisable as a media star, with many appearances on television and on radio under his belt. Paul Newman is a veteran front-of-house marketeer and operator with over 25 years' experience in the hospitality, fine dining and wine industries. A former Regional Brand Manager for Absolut Vodka UK, Paul was a founder member and shareholder in successful concern Living Ventures Ltd, renowned for setting up The Living Room restaurants and bars, Gusto Restaurants and The Blackhouse Grills.
