We eat at Y Ffarmers fairly regularly, and had lunch there today. The warm welcome and standard of catering is always excellent, but today's Christmas meal was better than ever. If you are looking for a venue for a first class, locally sourced, Christmas meal, you'll find nowhere to beat Y Ffarmers - absolutely delicious! Thank you, Esther and Rhodri... More

We have had several family meals in Y Ffarmers and it deserves a special mention for the consistent high standard of cooking and welcome. Welsh food and ambiance at its best. Excellent local produce prepared with originality and pride, no jingoism here, but plenty of confidence, borrowing from Mediterranean recipes to enhance flavours as appropriate. You can feel you are... More

We were visiting our Daughter in Aberystwyth for her birthday and wanted to give her a nice treat. Trip Advisor had great reviews. It was a fab journey through tall sided single track lanes until we reach the village. The pub had a gorgeous fire by our table and the food was fantastic. All cooked there. The decor is simple...

There is a nice little bar with delicious, real Welsh ales and interesting company to chat with - in English or Welsh! The restaurant is excellent, as is the local honey they sell. A great pub and restaurant for the both the local community and as a destination for a great meal and or session.

We were recommended this place by a good friend, and we thank them endlessly for that recommendation! This was our fifth visit and we will keep on coming, this place never ceases to impress. Wonderful atmosphere, great real ales, lovely menu (that keeps changing but we continue to work our way through), and very friendly and helpful staff. This time... More

With regard to my general comments about dining in Aberystwyth restaurants in my latest review on this site about Matt's Deli (Bow St.), I thought it was only fair that I should qualify my reasoning by mentioning the 'one-or-two' places I thought worthwhile... and the Ffarmers, Llanfihangel-y-Creuddyn is certainly 'The One'. A great local (ie: WELSH) family-run place serving excellent... More
