Food is at the heart of The Farmhouse, with award-winning cuisine served throughout the day in a choice of areas. The bar and lounge are popular throughout the year for coffee and casual dining, whilst our restaurant provides an ambient setting complete with an open log fire. 'The Courtyard' is large, light and airy, spilling out onto the poolside terrace where you can dine al fresco in summer overlooking our mature gardens and the surrounding countryside with a variety of mouth-watering menus. A choice of private dining rooms is also available as well as two gazebos for informal gatherings looking to wine and dine outdoors. We combine British and Continental cuisine with the odd dish from further afield to create diverse and imaginative menus that incorporate organic and Fairtrade products wherever possible. Our aim is to cater for all palates, from fine dining to something a little less formal, so forget all your preconceptions about hotel restaurants. It's about the food, the drinks, the company and maybe just occasionally 'one too many' on a school night.

Excellent Food - disappointing Cheeseboard!

We had a delicious meal - beautifully cooked and presented. Nothing excited my husband on the pudding menu so he asked what cheeses were on the Cheeseboard - Cheddar, Brie and Stilton. Really? A top restaurant and they can only manage that? Such a disappointment - a beautiful goat's cheese is... read more

An overnight stay at the hotel gave us the opportunity for a meal too, the restaurant was not full but was full enough that we decided to sit in the comfortable bar, service was top notch and the atmosphere was a bubbly happy. A couple of glasses wine went down swimmingly with a very good homemade burger cooked to a... More

I was due to fly out of Guernsey on the 10.30am flight but arrived to find all flights delayed due to the fog, having got booked onto the 4.30pm I decided to go and find somewhere a bit more comfortable than the departure lounge. Had heard of the Farmhouse and decided to call in for a coffee and do a... More

Friday business lunches sound ideal but poor food and service. let alone company can make them a real chore! Well not last Friday at The Farmhouse where everything was top notch. The three of us met in the bar and over a pint of Wonky Donkey started putting the world to rights and choosing from the well stocked menu. That... More

We had 11 people all gathered for a family dinner. When we first arrived in the bar area which was very tastefully done, we were greeted by two staff who were very friendly. We had reservations of which they were aware and made every effort to seat us and pull together chairs and tables for pre-dinner drinks and menus. The... More

We didn't stay in it but went for the day for a concert by a Queen tribute band. The staff were lovely. We sat round the pool and had a buffet dinner which was fantastic. The gardens are beautiful and the hotel interior is lush.. We said that if we return to Guernsey we will stay in this hotel.

We stayed here for a week and enjoyed several meals at this excellent restaurant. Prior to eating, we went to the bar and enjoyed a drink while ordering from the menu. The staff could not have been more pleasant and cheerful. We ate grilled sea bass, chancre crab, excellent steaks, superb eggs Benedict - we enjoyed all three meals at... More

Both the staff and surroundings are very good with a pleasant restaurant and attentive staff. The menu was disappointing with a distinct lack of imagination and food very bland.

Description

Food is at the heart of The Farmhouse, with award-winning cuisine served throughout the day in a choice of areas. The bar and lounge are popular throughout the year for coffee and casual dining, whilst our restaurant provides an ambient setting complete with an open log fire. 'The Courtyard' is large, light and airy, spilling out onto the poolside terrace where you can dine al fresco in summer overlooking our mature gardens and the surrounding countryside with a variety of mouth-watering menus. A choice of private dining rooms is also available as well as two gazebos for informal gatherings looking to wine and dine outdoors. We combine British and Continental cuisine with the odd dish from further afield to create diverse and imaginative menus that incorporate organic and Fairtrade products wherever possible. Our aim is to cater for all palates, from fine dining to something a little less formal, so forget all your preconceptions about hotel restaurants. It's about the food, the drinks, the company and maybe just occasionally 'one too many' on a school night.
