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.

Had a fabulous Sunday roast for a family birthday. The food was delicious and we were well looked after by Helen who was so kind and helped us with our food choices. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Great Sunday lunch, the vegan lasagna is lovely. Husband had the roast beef and said it was the best roast (apart from mine of course) that he’d had in a long time. Laura served us and was very professional and great fun too.

Laura served us today, spot on service. I had the scallops for starters and the roast beef for main course. The standard of the service and food was very good. I’ll definitely be back again.

Visited today at lunchtime for the wife's birthday. We aren't really the sort of people who have what I would describe as "a meal" for lunch, a paying, baguette, sandwich, ploughman's and some chips to share is my definition of lunch. Having said that we...shared a steak ciabatta and a couple of starters/small plates. What we had was excellent, not cheap for lunch (75quid for 2) but very nice. I guess they do very nicely serving "dinners" all day, my only criticism would be the lack of, what to me personally, is "lunch fayre". Oh yeah they're dog friendly too which is always great.More

We were very impressed with the valentine's menu. The cod and prawns dishes were a favourite, spicy risotto balls surprisingly tasty. Laura and Holly were friendly, great service. It was busy but staff were on the ball. Valentines fizz a nice tipple.

Came in for a Valentine’s Day and was served by Laura. The meal was delicious and Laura was attentive and cheerful throughout. She looked after us really well. A nice touch at the end was being given heart chocolates. All in all a lovely evening...and would highly recommend, especially Laura.More

Not our first visit & certainly won’t be our last! Good atmosphere, best fish & chips for miles & friendly and attentive service without being intrusive. As good as any other Elite pub I have been to. I like the flexibility of the menu -...you could have a snack and a coke or a full 3 course meal with wine and coffee! The Farmhouse has a cozy restaurant, more seating upstairs when it gets busy, a nice bar/pub area and lots of outdoor options for the summer. It’s consistently good and one of our favourite locals. GREAT espresso martinis!More

The skewer chicken has to be one of my favourite meals, it is so tasty. I swop the pita in for more salad to be gluten free, and it’s beautiful. The portion size is generous and I just love it!

Booked Sunday lunch for my boyfriend’s birthday and I’m so glad I chose The Farmhouse. We’ve been to other pubs in the chain but never the farmhouse. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We were seated quickly by a very friendly member...of staff, and not long after our drinks and food order take. Our server, Laura B, was friendly, funny and just all round fantastic, nothing too much trouble, checked how we’d want our beef cooked as it is served pink. She is an asset to the restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious, served quickly and everything was piping hot. We had 2 roast platters with all the trimmings - absolutely delicious. We also had a pistachio creme brûlée to finish - again, divine. We would most definitely return and also recommend to friends and family.More
