I was on the planning committee to arrange a celebration for our work. We looked at several venues but liked the privacy of the Folly part at the farmhouse, when arranging the details the staff were very accommodating of allergies and tried their best to solve any problems we had. On the day we arrived early and were met by...

Being a big fan of sour dough bread I was keen to try the sour dough pizza. My son was keen to join me so we called this evening for an early meal. We were not disappointed. Jack, the pizza chef, took time to explain the process showing us how he went about preparing a fantastic pizza for me and...

Recently refurbished and very nicely done too! Called in on a Saturday lunchtime and it was surprisingly quiet. Welcoming and professional bar/waiting staff. We chose our table and looked at the extensive menu. I had field mushroom linguine with wilted spinach and my husband chose the beef burger. Didn't have to wait long for the food and it was well...

We really enjoyed our visit here, even though we felt it was like a crèche at times (we counted 14 children in the room). It became quite noisey with crying children at some points and I couldn't hear my husband through the noise and we wasn't sure if there was special deal with children's menu. So maybe we may avoid...

Just had lovely meal to end weekend with friends at the farmhouse. Food was amazing but the service was spectacular. Don't think I've been so comfortable with a restaurant team telling us what was not available as it been a very busy day. Or the lovely Brittney (Britt on bill) coming back to say they had another fish for us...

We visited for a meal as a couple on Friday night. The fire was going and there was a great relaxing atmosphere. The decor is modern with lots of character and is very inviting. We took advantage of the 2 for 1 on pizzas before 7pm. The pizzas were fresh and tasted delicious, with plenty of topping. These aren't your...

Recently had a family meal whose ages ranged from 1 to 83 years. The staff were very helpful when we asked to have some amendments to the menu choices and the food was lovely. Will definitely be returning.

Absolutely fantastic meal! Food was first class. Decor amazing. Service was outstanding Joseph was exceptional. 241 on pizza which was a wonderful surprise. Fresh from the oven, and the best pizza We had ever had. The brownie was also exceptional, thoroughly enjoyed. Really enjoyed the meal and would book again in the near future. Well done Mackworth!

The place is absolutely stunning, couldn't fault the restaurant itself, from the open kitchen & chef throwing pizza, to the open fireplaces and cosy conservatory, beautiful. The only fault was the under trained waitress. Although the restaurant wasn't busy at all, she seemed stressed and would often stop to reassess her tables & their situation. Bless her she was polite...
