A mixed bag. Good, could be great with attention to detail. Ended with an insult!

Have just returned to our room in Farnham after eating here, can't say we returned happy. We arrived at 6.30 for a table booked for 6.30, we were told they weren't quite open, but would be opening soon, no apologies, and no indication they were ready for guests when they eventually... read more

During our stay at the Farnham Estate we decided to eat here. The food was very tasty and the staff were attentive and excellent. We both had 2 courses each and a drink, the sirloin steak was really good! Bill was about £60 which is pretty average for a hotel restaurant. Overall an enjoyable and tasty meal!

We recently had the pleasure of an annual visit from my college friend and his wife. As in the past we opted to have dinner at The Botanical Restaurant in the nearby Radisson Blu Farnham Estate hotel. This was a nice experience as a reunion celebration. I am not a fan of their much favoured Sunday lunch offering but certainly... More

Gorgeous surroundings and friendly staff. However, in my opinion, food is substandard. Menu is a standard bar offering but the quality is very bad. Ordering nachos which were very bland to say the least with lumps of mince in the beef chilli, chicken wings that are borderline and a burger that was just tasteless I would not recommend this bar...

Ate at the Botanica restaurant in the Radisson Hotel as we were passing through Cavan. At €37 for two courses plus tea/coffee not cheap, but not break the bank either. For that price a restaurant quality meal is expected. In some respects it delivered - a decent room, lovely waitress, safe edible food ... However: My starter of crab and... More

I had lunch in the Botanica bar and dinner in the Wine Goose Cellar Bar (same menu) during my stay at Farnham Estate. The food is good quality and good value, but very standard, just the selection you would expect from a bar.
