“Good Food But Let Down By Service”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Visited after booking a table at lunch time on a Thursday. Table was booked for 1pm. Did not get served for 45 minutes when after complaining someone finally took our order. Finally got drinks served an hour after we arrived and food over one and a half hours after our arrival. I know they were busy but they clearly needed more staff and more organisation. We were asked for our dessert choice before our main course arrived as they thought we had eaten. Also despite booking, people turned up ad hoc and got served before us. The food is very good when it arrives but sadly the poor service did not make up for it.

“Good Food - Terrible Service”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We booked a table in advance and on arrival had to wait in a queue to be shown to our table. It was then 25 minutes before anyone came to take our order and then had to wait another 10 minutes for our drink. It was one hour before we received any food at this time it did not matter how good the food was we just wanted to leave. We have been before and the service has been on the slow side but today was the final straw, we will not be going back.

“Back for more”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We visited Homesteads Farm last time we were up visiting family in Southport. We enjoyed it so much that we said we would come back. And this week we did. Twice. The food was excellent once again and the service also. We were so glad to find this place in the middle of nowhere. My only negative comment would be perhaps that some of the portions are a little on the large size for your average diner, especially if you want to make it to the delicious desserts on offer! Other than that would love to have a place like this nearer home. It really is a little gem.
