I noticed a couple of minibus's with Italian plates pull into the Farnham Park Restaurant drive and then saw the sign advertising new ownership and authentic Italian food so I visited that night.
This was their first day and they had not yet fully opened for business but they agreed to serve my family and I anyway. They are redocorating and modernising the facilities and things are already looking very nice. The restaurant area is the first in the schedule of facelifts.
We allowed them to serve us whatever they wanted and this was a good decision. The food just kept coming in typical Italian (Sicilian) style with sumptuous vegetarian anti-pasta, fish Pasta and a range of other courses with finally assorted fruit cooked in a lemon liquer from Corsica. Everything tasted fantastic and we will definitely return. During the meal they sung traditional Southern Italian songs to entertain and plied us with large quantities of house wine (very nice) and Grappa/Liquers.
All of this for £25 per head!
The hotel still requires some modernising but this is next on the agenda. Nice people, nice service and briilliant value.
