Description: Food is at the heart of The Farmhouse, with award-winning cuisine served throughout the day in a choice of areas. The bar and lounge are popular throughout the year for coffee and casual dining, whilst our restaurant provides an ambient setting complete with an open log fire. 'The Courtyard' is large, light and airy, spilling out onto the poolside terrace where you can dine al fresco in summer overlooking our mature gardens and the surrounding countryside with a variety of mouth-watering menus. A choice of private dining rooms is also available as well as two gazebos for informal gatherings looking to wine and dine outdoors. We combine British and Continental cuisine with the odd dish from further afield to create diverse and imaginative menus that incorporate organic and Fairtrade products wherever possible. Our aim is to cater for all palates, from fine dining to something a little less formal, so forget all your preconceptions about hotel restaurants. It's about the food, the drinks, the company and maybe just occasionally 'one too many' on a school night.

“Great break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We stayed at The Farmhouse for the 3rd time this November. As usual the service was excellent. The break coincided with the tennerfest and there were some excellent dishes that you don't often see on restaurant menu's - cod cheeks for instance. All well cooked and delicious.

“Lovely afternoon tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

My sister had won a raffle, and the prize was Afternoon Tea at the Farmhouse. What a treat! We chose from a good selection of teas and then were served a glass of bubbly before our food arrived. There was the usual selection of finger sandwiches with delicious fillings, and then homemade scones and jam, cakes and fruit tarts. We ended up spending three hours chatting and drinking tea, what a fabulous way to spend a Sunday afternoon! The staff were also very friendly even though they were very busy.

“Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Yum! Spent a very pleasant afternoon catching up with a girlfriend whilst enjoying a splendid afternoon tea. Good choice of sandwiches, pastries and, of course, freshly made scones with jam and cream. There are always rather too many sweet bites for me but that's pretty normal. Personally, I'd favour more sarnies and fewer cakes but that's just a personal preference. Good choice of teas too.

“tennerfest treat!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

my partner and myself had lunch during tennerfest recently, we chose the 2 courses for £15
and were treated to an excellent lunch, excellent service in a beautiful venue!, most tennerfest menus offered are cheaper across the island but for a few pounds more you get a 5 star experience with lovely food and the service wonderful. weve done 6 tennerfests at different locations and this was one of the 2 best we found, try it before tennerfest ends!!
