This place came highly recommended and deserves its plaudits. The first aspect of service I tend to notice is what the serving staff are wearing... specifically a smile. Our waitress certainly had a lovely smile and was extremely efficient and not overly fussy. She dismissed my old mans attempt at humour regarding the oysters with a knowing look and ready... More

The waitress my friends and I were served by was lovely! The (i think french) waiter on the other hand was ok...towards the women of my group but to the men...not really great, didn't really listen, was definitely only interested in listening to the women and made me feel like I was rude to him when I didn't say a...

We had a latish long lunch and were made to feel very welcome and not in the slightest rushed. The food was fabulous, home made and locally sourced, I had a vegetarian dish which was delicious and interesting, the side salad was fresh and varied. My companions had scampi, chips and salad and belly pork with Cumberland sausage and black... More

Dropped in when passing through for lunch for the second time and was very impressed with our meals. I had the belly pork and my husband had the fish parcel. The portions were more than we could eat, fresh and very tasty. A large spacious interior offers comfortable seats and a feeling that you could stay there all day. Thanks... More

Not sure what's going on at the Farmers. Until recently was hands down the best eat in Ulverston. Service still great, not too bad a price, but the food just isn't what it used to be. My last two steaks here have been chewy, gristly and hard work. Twenty odd quid for fillet you expect melt in the mouth. Come... More

Would have been a five rating ,but as with a lot of hotels now, you have to pay extra for the breakfast,which was quite expensive,£2 for a cup of tea !!.The staff and service were great and the food they serve was superb,i just wish they had put breakfast on the price to begin with.

We had a really lovely Sunday lunch here. I had the beef and husband had the lamb. It came with plenty of veg and gravy and great homemade Yorkshire puds. I was full but husband had raspberry panacotta for pud which he said was delicious. I had to take his word for it as he was not sharing! I had... More
