Much improved service at this pub?restaurant

Last time I went service was painfully slow but this time it was good, being both swift and friendly. The food was good "pub" food with some more original items in the starters; the servings were HUGE which my wife found overfacing, and indeed I was the only one of our group that ate it all, but... read more

Lovely food and a nice atmosphere, the staff are very friendly. We ordered from the main menu and the food was delicious, very generous portions. There is also a menu two courses for £8.99 and a specials board.

The place was very busy and at times very crowded, however, apart from the overly expensive beer, the menu looked interesting and the food that I had was very tasty and well prepared. Give this one a visit and you will not be disappointed

Huge portions, but they let us share dishes. Really good food and service. It has a pub-like layout but it is more of a restaurant now, though it does serve a wide range of beers and other drinks.

Welcoming staff and good service made our first visit to the Old Farmhouse very nice indeed. Wide choice on the menu (a la carte, specials and a Sunday menu) and good hearty portions added to our good impressions. The food was tasty, served hot and even though it was a busy restaurant, served timely. Even when our puddings came out... More

We went as a group of friends and all had the lunch special. There was a good choice of both starters and main course and dessert if you had room. According to the men they also served a good choice of draught beer. This place is really good value for money with well cooked food in pleasant surroundings.

Went back again for our tea on 8th April and had another fantastic meal. Very friendly place, and lovely inside and out, the staff are lovely and always make a fuss of our little dog. We went for the cod father and weren't disappointed! It was really lovely and very good value, fast service, red hot food, fish the size... More

Great price for the two course deal. Visited with elderly parents. Lovely setting, beautiful table, service was great, fish and chips were slightly disappointing, batter was soggy, otherwise no complaints.

I have eaten here a few times and the food has been consistently good in the main. The environment is nice and friendly, plenty of outdoor seating if the weather is nice. I wish they would learn how to make a proper 'fruit crumble' however as this has been disappointing more than once.
