Just great food.

Went for lunch. They have a 2 course set menu for lunch which is a great value for the quality of food they serve. I had the Steak and ale pie, but it in definitely not your average pub pie. The pastry was fresh and light. The filling was more like a pot roast than a pie filling. Served with... read more

Booked for an evening meal on first night of trip to IOM, on back of very good reviews here.. Food is fine also service but overall a fairly flat experience. No real atmosphere in the restaurant, not helped by the high partitions everywhere. The service was clinical and not over friendly, food and drinks pretty pricey

I was lucky enough to visit MacFarlane,s twice in the last week. Once for a family birthday party and once for a "girls night out".This gave me an opportunity to sample more of the delicious starters. The tart with queenies and lobster in thermidor sauce was incredible and the goats cheese souffle floated off the plate. Calves liver waS cooked... More

We were here for a birthday meal. We booked ahead for a table for two and since the place was small and full I would definitely recommend booking ahead of time. The restaurant had a lovely feel and our booth gave us a good level of privacy and meant the noise level never got too loud even though it was... More

We visited this venue on two ocassions. After first time we decided to come back as there is too many delicious things on the menu. The goat cheese souffle for a start was to die for - we've been told that this dish is one of the most popular, so no surprise there. My wife had a soup, which was... More

We had seen some excellent reviews for MacFarlane's and were eager to try it during our weekend visit to The Isle of Man. We booked for dinner using the restaurant's online booking service and received an email to confirm it. The next day, having been out sightseeing, we returned to our hotel to find another email, this time from the... More

Went here for my birthday dinner. They greet you at the entrance to the hotel, from whence you proceed to the bar to choose your meal. We had already said we would like taster menu which gave chef a chance to prepare the best meal we have had on the island. Food was well presented, service impeccable and an excellent... More
