This is a good place where to stop by during travelling. Familiar atmosphere and nice service. I tried a steak salad that was delicious. Fish & chips was also good.

My experiences at Farnes's have actually been wonderful. They are very accommodating and very customer minded as a restaurant should be. The food is real good and I know for a fact that they are very clean.
