Was there for dinner and several times for lunch 😋 which is best value. Dinner portions nearly too big.High quality Regional/traditional dishes. Everything really home cooked and locally sourced. Great wine selection as well. Love the freshly baked cakes. Full of country style character. Always satisfied!

Our waiter was a bit scatty, one person ordered gluten free bread which never came. We ordered our main courses and again one was to be gluten free, when the dishes arrived the... More

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
