My husband booked for us to have dinner at Farmer Browns for my birthday. As soon as we walked into the resturant I commented on how cold the resturant was. There were only us and another couple in the room. I didn't take my coat off the whole time I was there as I was too cold and the other... More

Arrived on spec, then waited 10 minutes to be attended. Two glasses of wine took another 10 minutes to arrive, then it was over an hour in total for just two plates of food. Quite nice dishes, but watery spinach dissolved a good sauce and duck was tough and a but tasteless.. The waitress was kind and well intentioned, but... More

We went to Farmer Brown's last night after a trip to Cinema City. We sat in the window next to the heater, which was the warmest I have been in any restaurant for quite some time - very welcome on a cold rainy night. The room was nice, with chill out music playing, and we had it to ourselves, which... More

Whilst on a day trip to Norwich saw this restaurant in my gourmet society book, We had a 2course meal which was very reasonably priced. The staff were very polite and nothing was to much trouble. I would recommend this restaurant to others. Everything was cooked to order.

Very nice environment, we were in a room with only 12 other diners which was really nice. The food was excellent - my husband left most of his starter as he had never tried scallops before and decided he didn't like them - but everything else was lovely. Excellent perfectly timed service.

Came in after a nice stroll through the city, it was very quiet but the atmosphere was delightfully peaceful. I usually always ask for the chefs recommendation or always ask for the best seller, which is what I did on this occasion, however one dish I had no trouble choosing was the Hake Risotto starter topped with a poached egg...

I have been before to Farmer Browns on a Monday night for Tapas night and the food has been OK so it was booked for a special Birthday. Even though when they first stared up a few years ago they "lost" a booking of 12 people, and I with the party ending up wondering the streets to find somewhere else.... More

Lovely food, great service & comfortable. Will go again & again. Only down side, they ran out of the wine we liked, and did not have much choice instead of. However the waiter did offer a wine off the menu, that was much more expensive, for the same price. The staff are outstanding by the way.
