We went for a lunch time meal at ‘The Farmhouse’ on Easter Monday at 1.30 pm. Having eaten at this establishment recently we were fairly confident that we would have a really good meal. What a massive disappointment as I can only find one positive thing to say about the whole experience. TARTAR SAUCE!!!!!
Although busy the place did have many spare tables, most of which were dirty and had empty glasses on. I cleared and wiped down our table with a slightly used napkin, hoping that at some point a member of staff would complete the job, I’m always the ‘eternal optimist!!!’ and on this occasion very wrong
As there was only the Sunday menu to choose from the choice of food was limited, I ordered ‘whale & chips’ & my husband the Aberdeen Angus roast with vegetable accompaniment. Having received our food in a reasonable time our waiter offered us a choice of sauces (but no cutlery until we asked twice) the sauces did not include tartar sauce for my fish dish. We requested the tartar sauce twice before the waiter delivered it, he said ‘I did get it out then put it back into the fridge and forgot about it’, charming!!!! Thank goodness for the tartar sauce as it was the STAR of the meal
My chips were dry and of the frozen variety and my ‘whale’ was a sad piece of grey haddock encased in a batter which was burned on the outside and soggy on the inside, in taste it resembled an under cooked donut ,YUK!!!!!!. My husband’s expensive ‘Sunday lunch’ was very dry, the vegetables were over cooked and without taste, the portions very small. The meal was total rubbish, shame on you Farmhouse for serving such poor quality food at such high prices.
The two meals with a pint of beer and a glass of wine were priced at £27.00 + so, buyers beware.
