“Same review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Sorry forgot to give it stars 5. A regular haunt for me & my family.
Only been in the Farmgate once for lunch & it was very good too. Had the Irish Stew. Will be back again soon.

“' A return visit - never disappointed'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

December 2013. Our Christmas lunch. Midelton. What a great atmosphere. The only problem I had was( and is) being an asthmatic I found it very difficult with the Euclyptus in the floral decorations. However, our server removed it from our table , but it's a big problem for asthmatics and I really wanted to have lunch there.
We had booked and really to ensure you get a table it's just the best thing to do .Book.
We were seated immediately, water , bread and menus.
We both had Beef Stroganoff, as it was a cold wintry wet day. It was just the ticket.
Flavoursome beef, melting . Rice perfect, not sticky. Mince pies (2 each no less) and cream , with great coffees. I got mine just as I asked for.. and it's a tricky combination. Not a blink, just a great smile and ' of course- not a problem'!! Don't you just love to hear that! Not a problem... What can I say? ' we will return'! ( if you'll pardon the Swartznegger comment')

“Excellant Food Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Enjoyed a great Pre Christmas lunch with a friend and had a very enjoyable experience.Despite the fact that the dining are was full the staff were attentive and efficient The manager approached us in a most polite fashion and asked if we would vacate the table before 2 30 as he had a queue of customers waiting. We did this in a most professional manner saying that he did not wish to rush us but would appreciate it. We obliged and were very impressed by his management style. In addition the food was great and well priced and it has an excellent wi.ne list.

“Best steak i have ever eaten...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This is the only choice for us when we are in the area for an evening meal. We had our first experience in Farmgate a couple of months ago , and have recently been back and it was as amazing as ever.Hands down the nicest Steaks we have eaten anywhere , cooked to perfection. Will be returning again as soon as possible.Staff are very helpful and pleasant also.

Would recommend the Crab Claws or Black Pudding starter , and Fillet Steak Main.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We celebrated a friend's birthday here on a Saturday night. Quite busy but excellent service, welcoming staff and fine food. The place had a real buzz about it.
