Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went in for a birthday lunch but then found that only a "brunch" menu was being used. We were a little disappointed, but we did choose from the menu as we didn't just want to go in and walk out. What we had was very nice, staff very friendly and the service was very good. Hope they get around to doing a more extensive menu very soon.

This place has massively gone downhill. Soup from a tin, steak pie frozen, veggies frozen, chips frozen, lamb chops the size of my finger and fatty and mostly bone. Mash from a packet. Gravy was Bisto granules and the bread was reheated from a packet - all for over £60 with drinks for two people. Not a single thing home cooked except maybe the lamb and even that was terrible. Barman sat in the dining room watching TV. Dated decor and very dark inside. No customers on a Saturday afternoon but us. No wonder!

We turned up on a Saturday night after a walk in the forest, they opened the kitchen back up again for us and made a delicious spread of fish and chips and chip butties. It was a perfect end to our day. We will definitely come again!

Absolutely fantastic cannot fault the service book so ever stayed open late to cook food for me and all my friends after a long day of walking in Delamere Forest and getting lost it was quite the joinable end to the day! After a few rounds of darts with the gang and a few games of pool we sat down and ate fish and chips and burgers and it was bloody lovely 10 out of 10 would come again amazing place xxxxx

Visited with family and we all commented on how lovely and friendly the staff were. Food came fast even though they were quite busy and it was very hot and tasty, all cooked perfectly especially the steak. So many good things to choose on the menu so will definitely be back to try more dishes. Well done

We thought we would try here as a few friends had said the food was good. Well we waited 55 mins for two steak rolls. They were in edible. Dry thin slices of beef burnt to a cinder at the edges . Two glasses of wine a pint and sandwiches were £30 what a rip off. After telling our friends who had recommended us they agreed that the food has once again failed for them also. It seems the good chef has walked out . When will such a handy local return to being a good village pub !!!

I had a fabulous experience in the Farmers Arms, what a delightful, welcoming place. The pub is clean, spacious and comfortable with great outdoor space. I had booked a table the prior evening and spoken to a lovely lady on the phone who turned out to be even more friendly and lovely when we turned up for lunch, the gentleman behind the bar was a real star and very pleasant to chat with. The locals were really friendly and we had a good laugh. This is ticking all the boxes for me before we even talk about the food, excellent, home cooked food by a chef who truly cares. The roast dinner was sublime, crispy roast potatoes, home made Yorkshire puddings, an interesting selection of vegetables and the meat was cooked to perfection. The roast was all brought together by a rich, luxurious gravy, a gravy you could tell had been nurtured and refined by a very talented chef. The puddings were luxurious and also all home made. Go and enjoy the Farmers Arms, the location, the ambience, the food and the warm friendliness that we all enjoy and need. This is a five star review, left with genuine appreciation and gratitude for the stellar job done by all in this truly awesome place.

I visited this pub with family recently, the food is most definitely overpriced, we did complain to staff, however the lady was very rude. Will not be visiting this pub again, which is a shame as we like to support local businesses, especially when they have only recently opened. One word ‘shocking’

My husband and I popped in here mid walk. We received a warm welcome from the lovely lady behind the bar. We asked about food, she said the chef wasn't in until 4:30pm. So we decided to wait 10minutes to order. The chef was late, he arrived at 4:50pm. We had starters which were nice. I had a burger and chips, which on the menu were described as home cooked. My husband had steak pie. The chips were frozen ones, and not very nice. The pie was a bit of puff pastry plonked on top on some very tough meat. We ate it all as we were wet and hungry from a big walk. The lady asked us how the food was, and we were honest. She disappeared into the back and we could hear her discussing this with the chef. She never came back out. There was no apology about the chef being late either. On reflection we would return for a lovely pint of San Miguel but never have food there again!

I would not recommend eating here. We saw the positive reviews and decided to go here for lunch. We ordered a chicken burger, cheeseburger and two cokes, which was about £23. While waiting for our food my partner saw the barman carrying two plates to another room, and while doing so he took some fries from one plate to put on the other. This put us off as we had just seen him collecting glasses,handling money and wiping sweat off his face! We tried the food when it arrived, the burgers were probably the worst I have ever tried, the chicken breast was rubbery and I think the burger might have been a microwaveable one. The chips are oven fries. The quality of the food and the fact that everything (cutlery, condiment holders etc.) Were all quite dirty made us leave feeling quite sick. I'm not sure if this place is under new management but the reviews don't reflect our experience here at all.

Two of us for a quick pub lunch today. Pub was empty apart from a group of young children sitting quietly playing near the bar. No other customers to be seen. Ordered 2 drinks and 2 soup and sandwiches. Choice of sandwich fillings was limited to egg or cheese, so chose cheese. We added a portion of chips to the order. Sat outside in the garden and waited for the food to arrive. And waited. And waited. Eventually it arrived. Soup was cold and inedible. It was incredibly salty and had a strong taste of chicken stock cubes but the overriding thing was how cold it was. The sandwiched were 2 slices of cheap white bread, slightly curling at the edges and stuffed with grated cheese. It was dry and unappetizing. By the time the cold soup had been eaten, the chips still hadn't arrived. When they did, they were hot and fresh but we were offered no condiments of salt, vinegar etc. It wasn't an expensive meal, just soup and a sandwich but it could have been so much better if decent quality ingredients had been used. As for the soup: I don't know what to say other than it wasn't like anything I've ever tasted before.
