I dont get it. How can this rate so highly against the likes of Sault and others. You sit at a bar or simple table nearby after you order at the bar, pay between $30-40 for just about anything you order, from chicken to pasta to a stew, pay an extra $6 for bread, get your cutlery passed to you...

I was looking for a special meal for my mothers 80th birthday as she is a previous restaurant owner and extremely particular. The presentation and taste outdid any of my expectations, I chose stuffed chicken breast with goats cheese (Beautiful and creamy not strong or bitter) with mash asparagus and glaze. It was mouth watering even before the first taste... More

Had dinner here a week or so ago and found it to exceed our expectations for a country pub. Great selection of food on the menu, prepared well and very tasty. Would thoroughly recommend.

We headed to Farmers Arms on the recommendation of Trip Advisor reviews and that of the booking agent at our accommodation, and as such with very high expectations. We were not disappointed. On arrival, the large number of cars made us nervous at the chance of being able to get a table but this establishment is obviously frequently by locals... More

We Are so glad that we tried this eatery. From the moment we entered we were greeted in the most welcoming manner. Service was good and the meals were delicious. I highly recommend the Creme Brûlée

We'd read many excellent reviews about this place so a dinner here whilst we were away was a must on our to do list. We'd ordered the cannelloni & porterhouse mains but after about 30 mins had to ask where our meals were to then be told our order never reached the kitchen but were told it'd be out within... More

My wife and i had dinner here on the 23rd December. We had hoped to go to the Galley for dinner but it was closed and initially this place was a consolation. But from now on this place will be our first port of call for dinner. There was nothing i could fault with the food. From the ham and... More
