Our regular weekly pre shopping stop - great coffee (Mathew Algie) and friendly staff. Carrot cake ( although unfortunately unavailable on the last 4 visits!) very good too.

What a wonderful organic farm shop. The food choices are incredible: fruit & veg, meats and cheeses, pies, fresh flowers, jams & chutneys, candles, celebration cards and other craft fayre. Some samples are available to try. We bought fruit (giant oranges - so sweet and juicy, the best we have ever tasted), local bacon (which was delish and didn't leave... More

This is a very popular restaurant, the staff are good and the food is pretty average. The one thing that I don't like is the noise. What with wooden ( beautiful ) chairs and the large area, the sound of conversation and chairs being moved around is quite off-putting.

Been coming to kilnford since it opened. I reckon 95% of our visits have been thoroughly enjoyable, GREAT food, great service, great staff etc. BUT it's that other 5% that let it down, seems like total chaos, very noisy and food not up to usual high standards. HOWEVER, I for one will NOT allow myself to be put off because... More

Visited yesterday for lunch with a friend. Before going into restaurant we had a look round shop. Not sure why salad items such as lettuce were all from England, when this is supposed to be a local farm shop? I manage to grow lovely lettuce in my garden at home. Anyway, then onto restaurant. As others have said, we found... More

queues and confusion , very poor acoustics = very very noisy--no clean cutlery and a menu not detailing the correct produce!

The setting is lovely, just off the A75 but tucked away so quieter than you'd imagine. Lovely selection of food from local sources. Airy dining areas with lovely grounds and some outdoor tables. Fantastic play area for children ( and me!)

My family and I visit Kilnford regularly and have tried a wide range of dishes without finding a single fault. The menu is not particularly extensive or fancy but it makes the most of the wonderful produce available in the farm shop. I can fully recommended the breakfast rolls and burgers as well as some of the dishes that appear... More

Great burgers, tasty chips and macaroni was amazing. Good that children under 12 eat free with a paying adult - could see this was one reason there were as many families. Looking forward to trying out another themed night.
