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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I love The Old Farmhouse. I’ve lived in Nailsea for 16 years and soon to be moving away. The Old Farmhouse is the only thing I’ll miss in the town! The pub has such a lovely atmosphere. It’s so warm and cozy, a ‘proper old...pub’. The staff are always really friendly and welcoming. The carvery on a Sunday is fantastic. Book early because it’s always busy. The food on the menu is lovely and a good choice of drinks at the bar. Ignore the negative reviews because every time I’ve been (with family), we’ve all loved the food, staff and atmosphere.More

Very busy and buzzy Pub on a Friday evening. Two couples had a great meal with excellent service with the young Staff members doing a terrific job. Food is extremely good and the pies are top of my list for content, quality and value. The...other members had either the chicken dish or the Moroccan dish which got a 10/10 vote. There were some large parties before us and we were prepared for a delay, but this was minimal, the Kitchen was obviously very well organised.More

Apologies you did not find it very festive, the pub is fully decorated, the music is a playlist of mixed music including Christmas and lots of people enjoying their time with us. Hope you have a great Christmas 🎄

The pub itself is lovely and the staff are friendly, but the food was pretty disappointing. Starters, mains and deserts were quite dry, bland and not really as described. I'd happily spend time there having a drink, but not for food. Maybe the kitchen is...busy with Christmas bookings.More

We were flying out from Bristol Airport on a Monday morning (at stupid o’clock) and went here for a Sunday lunch before we checked into our overnight accommodation. We both decided on a Sunday roast and really enjoyed our meals, very good value and tasty....The service was excellent and servings were generous but not too big. After our lunch we went for an enjoyable walk on a community maintained path the other side of the car park.More

I've never been a massive fan of carverys and unfortunately this one was just as disappointing as the others ... I'm always incredulous when people say 'oh my god it's amazing' All the meat was over cooked and dry, The potatoes were awful ...I never...understand this ? Any chef or cook will tell you .. once cooked they have a shelf life of 20 - 30 minutes tops ... potatoes are cheap as anything... why not cook a fresh tray every 10 mins ? These were just terrible, all the veg (with the exception of the carrots) were soggy, over cooked and bland and the Yorkshires were soggy and tasted stale ... I didn't like the prison style gravy serving hole with slop all around it ... staff lovely, pub beautiful and to be fair the desserts (despite being way over priced £7 for a few scoops of ice cream?) Were tasty ... wouldn't recommend and have yet to find a carvery in the UK that cooks as well as my gf and I do for a quarter of the price... Sorry but no cigar !More

I felt they should offer smaller plates for carvery, not just large or children. Understand people take advantage, but with one slice of meat and veg, can't really overload it? I felt the chef needed better manners, very bad customer service . Nice pub just...felt not looking out for what customers want and look for new chef maybe??!!More

Wasn't overly busy, was seated and server said she'd be back to take drink order. 15 minutes later had to chase her. 30 minute wait for food, one meal ok but other two nothing special with excessive red onion slices a theme. Finished eating and...could have walked out as all staff seemed to have disappeared. It's become a bit of a theme there when not a Sunday carvery.More

I'm not usually a fan of carvery but this one was really good. Good nut roast along with a variety of vegetables which were cooked in a more imaginative way than normal and of course very good value when you can pile your plate up:)...It was very busy so that shows how popular and well thought of it is. The staff were very welcoming and polite. Great place for the locals to have. It serves lunch all Sunday afternoon and it's not just carvery, there's a (restricted) menu of other dishes on offer, so all in all a great place to meet up with family.More
