A fantastic little pub. We were staying at Comlomgon Castle and didn't fancy the evening meal menu there. This pub was 15 minutes walk from the castle. The food was gorgeous - the crispy chilli beef was amazing and my husband had chicken and haggis with peppercorn sauce, which he really enjoyed. The staff were welcoming and friendly - we... More

Myself, husband, 2 yr old son and nana visited here today. We had checked out trip advisor first and weren't sold on the reviews but felt it was only fair to try for ourselves. Firstly the lady who served us our drinks was very friendly and welcoming. We ordered quite quickly and felt there was a very good selection. We... More

Food was ok & no major complaints. Longer wait than expected but cant complain. Price was fair for what we had. Customer service - felt uncomfortable & as if we were not welcome. Completely understand we all have off days, however a small, local pub, never mind anywhere you would expect customer service, it's sad to feel unwelcome & as... More

Well this is the first time in about 30 years in this industry that I've been called an"owner dude" ! Perhaps the "reviewer dudes" had been sampling the festive spirits before submitting their review ? Unfortunately they conveniently forgot to explain that they ordered drinks and dithered about for 20/25 minutes before they eventually decided to order. We are not... More

Quiet location, Colin should be on mastermind - his specialist subject Whiskey Distilling. Also to be commended on his excellent choice of Marmalade! Room was very clean and warm with really decent shower.

I was present when the previous reviewer was at the pub, having myself reserved two tables there for a meal (our booking is a regular recurring monthly one, which started many years ago) and I think it's a bit unfair, to be honest. In my opinion the owner did remarkably well to serve drinks to this large party before trying... More

I would recommend that you NEVER stay at the farmers inn. I have never met such RUDE people. We booked back in march to stay for two nights. I had to book two rooms as we have two children as they do not cater for family's with two children. The only reason we agreed to book it is we were... More

We have hosted many, many wedding parties the night before their big day with great success. The guests all seem to enjoy the informality and the relaxed atmosphere in our small country pub ahead of the formalities of the actual wedding day. This meal was booked for 18 and later amended to 20 NOT 26 ! The person who booked... More

Stayed in a cottage in Ruthwell with friends and went here for a meal. The menu was a mixture of traditional pub grub with quite a few specialities. Two of us plumped for chicken and haggis and two for chicken and black pudding. We all sgreed that the meals we had were delicious and the helpings more than adequate. The... More
