I had lunch here for the first time today. A little hidden gem. The first bonus is not having to pay for parking, no struggling with finding a machine, change etc. so that's a nice positive start. Lovely welcome at the door, seated quickly and order taken when we were ready. Great selection of food on offer at a mid... More

As it happened on this occasion only had a snack but saw the others in the restaraunt having wonderful food in a really quaint atmosphere. There is also a shop where you can buy local produce. Super local produce to eat in or take away.

Amazing service from the minute we arrived until we left. The gentleman serving us with glasses was lovely! Our food was so fresh & tasty!!! The dessert was 10 out of 10 and the cappuccino was the best I've ever had!!! Highly recommend this place!

I hadn't been to the Farmgate in years. I don't know why really, I think I just had a mental block about the place been big & cold. I've eaten there twice in the past two months & the food and service are the best in Midleton. The staff are friendly without being overbearing & the food quality is fantastic.... More

Ate here recently with a friend. Was very busy (Saturday lunchtime), so had to wait a little while for a table. But was worth the wait. Good, tasty food. Nice portions. Fantastic atmosphere. Lovely staff. Looking forward to returning.

I have been going to this restaurant in Midleton, Co. Cork for years. This is actually one of the highlights of my trips to Ireland each time. I love the decor, the staff is very friendly, and the food is great. For starters, I love the Calamari with a salsa sauce, or the bacon and scallops salad. Love them so... More

Was there for lunch during the summer for lunch, we had a great feed. The meal was lovely, the food was plentiful, and you'll go a long way to meet nicer or more helpful staff. I had the lasagne, nicely cooked and great taste, my partner in crime had the fish pie, which she loved. Didn't cost an arm and... More
