Everything about this hotel is the best of the best. Staff, rooms, gardens and food all jump out at you. I promised my girlfriend a longer stay next time as we only had the two nights and wanted to try eveything on the menu! I just wish it were closer, come open one near Basingstoke please!

We stayed here for an overnight stopover and it was a very pleasant experience.
It was everything you expect from a Country Hotel - warm, friendly, traditional and very well run.
Well worth paying the little extra for this quality and travelling the ten minutes from the M5.
Dan, the only 'front' person we saw, deserves special mention for his professionalism. He is a real credit to the business. We will return.

Yes this is a great hotel and yes the staff and food is top notch and yes they rear, grow and cured everything on site but its the small touches that make this hotel really stick out from all the others. They remember your names each time, they dont pester you every five second but always seem to be there just as you need something, they make there own butter! This is a great hotel and a whole lot more. Congrats.

Myself and my husband stopped in for lunch on the off chance (our third visit now) having not book which in hide sight we would normally have done were told that the chef was off today but rather than turn us away they offered us a charming snack menu with a selection of sandwiches and a choice of some lovely hot meals including sweet and sour pork from there own reared pigs. A real effort was made to make us feel welcome and nothing was to much effort. Many thanks to John and team.

Great staff, food and hotel. I have serious food allergies which most hotels and chefs either dont understand or dont have the skill or knowledge to over come this was not the case at the Farthings not only did the staff understand but went out of there way to change and adapt the menu to fit in with my allergies. I will be back and will be telling everyone about this gem.
