I love the Farmgate in Midleton and definitely think it's worth a detour into Midleton to visit the restaurant. On our recent visit we enjoyed cakes as it was mid-afternoon. The restaurant was very busy so there was a lively atmosphere. The carrot cake is my personal favourite and was as good as always and I had some of the... More

Ate her last month and was was simply blown away by the uniqueness of the venue which was duly matched by the quality of the food and the service. They have just opened a new dining area in the covered courtyard and yet again they managed to recreate the same atmosphere they have in the shop and restaurant . We... More

This restaurant is miles ahead of the competition in terms of both food and ambience. The layout of the restaurant is fantastic as are the staff and the food is absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a restaurant with character and good wholesome food .Will be returning soon.

The town of Midelton, Co. Cork has been bypassed for many years now. Recently we decided to take a detour & visit it again. Farm gate deli restaurant/cafe is well worth a visit. It is situated on a side street off the main street at the eastern end of town. The small frontage is deceptive as the shop opens into... More

The Farmgate in Midleton never lets me down - delivers every time on service, quality, freshness, good local produce, gorgeous baked desserts and breads and definitely top notch steak. I don't eat seafood but friends say its gorgeous as well. Definitely one of the best places to eat in Midleton although there are quite a few good restaurants in this... More

Always go for the breaded calamari in pepper sauce - yum - could eat them 'til they came out my ears! Beef & mushroom/Sheppard's pie also good - as are the open sandwiches. Like the Dungarvan Helvick blonde ale - staff always friendly/attentive/quick - lovely desserts, can get them to take away - nice selection of artisan breads outside too... More

Dinner for four and we ate all across the menu. Everyone was very happy with their food. Plenty of veg served and real potatoes in their summer skins - yum. Second time in a week to have squid - this one was lovely and light well cooked and the pepper sauce great. Seafood pasta was delicious. I love the idea... More

We shared a delicious seafood platter for two with scallops, mussels, crab and calamari. The flavours were just wonderful, plump mussels, succulent scallops etc. yum! We shared a scrumptious lemon tart followed by excellent coffee.The house Sauvignon Blanc was also perfect. Friendly,efficient service in very pleasant surroundings. Excellent value for money. Not surprisingly, the place was buzzing.
