A lovely Mother's Day lunch, fully enjoyed with the family, not least due to the friendly and attentive staff, especially our waiter Joe! The food was very tasty, and arrived quickly and with a smile. Would definitely recommend to friends and family - Ward Family.

Today, we visited the Farmhouse for lunch and it was amazing. We ordered the Rib Eye Steak and Pork Chop, both delightful! We couldn't resist choosing something from the dessert menu, the Sticky Toffee was gorgeous! Our server Joseph was attentive, polite and didn't mind helping me choose what steak to go for! I've already booked a table for my...

Thought we would try this on a Tuesday which to our surprise turned out to be two for one on pizzas and half price steaks - win! Upon arrival you wait to be seated and then as you turn the corner it opens out into a surprisingly tastefully decorated area. We were impressed! The food was nice too and you...
