Great meal and Fab service. Can’t wait to go again!
Had a lovely time. Such a chilled out atmosphere. Food was fantastic and staff are very friendly. Well worth the wait. We will be back.
A reurn visit. I took visiting friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the meal. Not fast service but it meant the meal was freshly cooked and we weren't in a hurry.
Great meal and good service, will be returning again very soon.
The Farmers Boy Inn was a delight, the food was excellent and the service was brilliant. I would recommend it to anyone and I will be back in the future. The waitresses were friendly and helpful, they were always smiling and I could see they enjoyed their job, something I think is important. The food was cooked perfectly and there was a nice selection, although we went on a Sunday for lunch, there was still options on the menu, so if you weren't looking for a roast you could pick something else, this was a nice touch, as one guest on our table is not a huge fan of roast dinners, he was able to choose something different and enjoyed his food. We opted for three courses and we left full and happy. As I said I will be returning and will tell all my friends and family to pop in too. Thank you for a lovely time, we couldn't have asked for more.
The food was delicious, couldnt fault it one bit. It was definately worth the wait. My mum was over the moon with her meal i treated her to yesterday. She said it was so nice to have such a favourable pie with so much meat in it. Would definately recommend going here for such lovely pub food. There was a few things i noticed in the toilets that need attention. The window edging was fallen off & just placed ontop of the toilet cistern, the finish to the wall panels could do with edging to cover the tatty edges etc. Before walking into the ladies all you could smell was the Little Boys Room which did put me off quite alot - thinking of cleanliness point of view. All the staff were very attentive & helpful.
Booking process easy, straughtforward and efficient. Table location was fine. I had phoned beforehand with a query re Veg options and they were really helpful. Menu options many and varied. No complaints at all about choice. Nevertheless, could have done with more paper menus and certainly more pie paper menus (only 2 for a party of 6). The food was disappointing compared to previous visits. Starter portions small for the price. Calamari was very dry. Satay portion very small given the £8 price ticket. Pies were as good as ever however the biryani was so overcooked! Tasted like it had had too much time in the microwave. I have been here quite a few times before. This time we had taken visitors from abroad. Not the best impression of a country pub with great food. Hopefully this was just a blip. Will go again.
We have often visited this pub. The welcome we got from Darren was as great as usual and there was no problem over the fact that we were a few minutes late for our table. However, we waited ages to be given our menus - only happened when Darren reminded the waitress and instead of handing us one each, she left them in a pile on the table. There was no courtesy check to see that our meals were ok ( they were delicious). When my husband ordered more drinks, mine came,but his did not. After waiting several more minutes, he managed to attract someone’s attention and they went to get his drink, only to come back and tell us they had run out of Chardonnay. All in all, welcome and food were great, service could do with some improvement.
Had booked online and turned up 5 minutes late but after finding our booking in my Christian name instead of Surname all was well. They were very very busy but had plenty of staff to attend. We were in the old part of the pub as I had asked for a romantic spot. The food was fab, beautifully presented. The music was exactly the right volume and content for us. If ever in the area again I wouldn't hesitate to book again.
Service was amazing and we didn’t have to wait along time to order or receive food . We have 3young children so that is always a worry for us . Food was amazing as well and they did everything to accommodate our requirements. Very friendly staff and lovely place . Definitely a new go to place for us and will recommend! Father’s Day gift was a nice touch
