Reviewed 2 January 2014

Me and my girlfriend took a short drive stay here for New year.
The experience was great the owners Gordon and Yvonne were really welcoming and friendly, the room we stayed in was excellent with a lovely view of the fireworks from the Dukes estate.
The breakfast the following morning was faultless and the "midnight buffet" on news year eve was delightful with me taking a fancy to the mini pizzas.
A truly great experience in pretty little village would recommend the Farndon for a place to stay whilst visiting Cheshire.

The pub has a handful of comfortable rooms upstairs and offers parking at the rear. We stayed here for a riding event nearby and found the owner/staff welcoming and helpful. They also managed to put one of our group up in a B&B across the road as they were full. We had a good dinner in the pub downstairs, but sadly left early in the morning so were unable to sample what sounded like an excellent breakfast. Would definitely go there again if in the area.

Stayed in The Farndon on our way to Holyhead. Had the Raven Suite. Spacious, modern yet with lots of character. Food was excellent - we had dinner and breakfast. Young girls serving table were lovely- smiling, bubbly and attentive. Would love to return for a longer stay and explore the area. Thank you all.

We stayed overnight before riding the Etape de Cymru. I simply cannot recommend The Farndon highly enough. The staff and owners were helpful above and beyond, most if not all, the hotels I have ever stayed in, nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and the bed really comfortable. We enjoyed a great dinner with lovely waitresses. Thank you so much , Yvonne and Michelle

We didn't stay at the Farndon but ate there twice whilst staying for a week in a local self-catering house. Two of our party are coeliac, and I had called in the previous evening to enquire whether the Farndon would be able to supply a gluten free meal. I was very impressed that when we arrived the next evening to eat, the waiter recognised me and knew that we needed gluten free food. All the food is made from scratch and the staff were extremely helpful in checking ingredients - we were able to order with confidence. The food was delicious (especially guinea fowl in tarragon sauce with fruity rice!) and the service professional but friendly. We returned for another meal 3 days later, and again had a very good experience.
Full marks for lovely food and very good service - we coeliacs really appreciate it when the staff are fully clued up!

Just returned from another night at The Farndon while we went to Cholmondeley Pageant of Power.
This must be our fourth or fifth visit here now. Yvonne and Michelle really know how to look after people. Great food in the evening, good local beer and a marvellous breakfast in the morning.
We took friends with us this time and they enjoyed it too. I can't wait until we find an excuse to visit here again.
