What can I say?..... We arrived at the farmhouse for a late bite on a Friday night after a hectic week. We were greeted by an absolute diamond geezer who quenched our thirst right away with a pint of 'ship yard' pale ale which hit the spot! After which we were looked after by the delightfully polite Holly, Nadia and... More

We looked around online for a weekend break and happened across The Farmhouse. Booked a superior Double and we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room with a huge bed and large bathroom. The room was very comfortable and had a high standard of tea and coffee. The restaurant had a good strong menu and the service excellent.... More

We stayed over in July what a friendly,quirky pub,restaurant and Bed and Breakfast. The Rooms are of a high standard very comfortable and quiet. With family at university it was a lovely find it broke up our journey. Highly recommend. Continental Breakfast was free but a cooked was extra.

My boyfriend booked us into a couple of nights stay here, and at first I was a little apprehensive as to what to expect as its a pub hotel. But boy was I impressed! Everything was perfect, the room was amazing! Sooo comfortable and loved having a bath in the room to relax in whilst watching some tele. The room... More

We were passing by this place on the way back from a walk at Ilam and decided to stop off for a meal on the off chance. Firstly, the bar/restaurant has nice curb appeal which attracted our attention as passing by and the inside did not disappoint. As we walked inside, we were greeted by a friendly face and asked...

Having had a lovely evening meal about a year ago, we had no hesitation in booking a second time. Unfortunately none of us were particularly pleased with what we ordered . The lasagnes were tepid in the centre so were returned to be reheated. On their return, the meat was in large lumps, giving the impression that the meat sauce... More

Hi 'Pat S' I apologise that the food wasn't upto standard on your last visit. I have passed your feedback onto the chefs and they are constantly working to try and improve the quality of the meals. The pizzas are cooked fresh in a wood fired oven, and so the heat distribution isn't always even, although they should never be... More

Not your average Marstons Pub restaurant! Loved the atmosphere here and food was 1st class. The pulled beef brisket burger and steak were cooked to perfection. Very helpful and polite staff. Although was busy we weren't made to feel rushed. Definitely recommend

Much against my better judgement, we decided to give the Farmhouse another go! We were invited back by the Manager to sample their lunch menu. I was a little nervous, however I was pleasantly surprised. When we arrived, it was a little busier than our last visit, but not much. We were greeted by an attentive, well mannered young woman...
