Visited with extended family for a tea-time meal after a fairly long day out. Found that the pub was very quiet, so they were easily able to accommodate us and the 4 children. The service was excellent and the food was very tasty - will definitely go back.

Had dinner here and what a great meal. Very friendly staff and a superb menu and very good quality food. I had the chicken pie and it was lovely chunks of chicken breast with perfect mash and vegtables. Very resonably priced as well, would not hesitate to come back when in area again.

We stopped in for lunch on Saturday on a whim. We usually visit the Tawny Owl but as we were this side of town thought we'd go to the Farmhouse. We ordered the Hunters Chicken and Kedgeree fishcakes. We were slightly disappointed with both meals. The streaky bacon on the chicken dish was very thickly cut and extreme chewy and... More

Went here on a afternoon about 4 o'clock and it was quiet but we were seating in a lovely corner table in the pub by a window and the music and ambience of the place was wonderful.

It's a few years since we last visited this pub and I'm afraid it will be a few years before we visit again. The food is basically average, typical chain pub food but not done very well. My wife is a vegetarian and quite often comes off worse with food, however, to be fair her meal was quite good, but... More

Visited with work colleagues. There was a new menu from the last visit. It was a much better choice. I chose the Thai curry and it didn't disappoint at all. Would definitely recommend. Nice atmosphere although service quite slow even though there appeared to be less diners than I've seen before on a lunchtime. Well worth a visit and reasonably... More
