“Gastropub at local prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Tried the Farmers for a family birthday. The staff could not do enough. Kids wanted sausages but they did not have any on the menu. Chef found some nice Lincolnshire sausages for us and they were great. Tried a few of the items on the menu and loved all of it. Looked like small portions but was very filling. Most of the meals are made from fresh local produce too. Have been a few times now and will definitely be going again.

“Fourth visit & a little disappointing. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

As mentioned above, me and my girlfriend have been here on previous occasions and always enjoyed the food and the service. However, yesterday evening was our fourth visit and we were a little disappointed more so to do with the service than with the food.

For instance, whilst ordering our starters we also ordered a drink. After a short wait our starters arrived, but we had to ask again for the drink as it had not arrived. We also had an extremely long wait when given the menus to choose our pudding, to the waitress returning to take the order.

The food itself tasted fine, but we both thought that the presentation on the main meals were below the standards we have enjoyed here previously.

Maybe it was an off night?, which is a shame because we know how good this place can be when they get it spot on.

“Recommended Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We had a 5 course tasting menu at the Farmers in October. Booking was simple. It is easy to find, parking and access is good. It is a family run pub with a nicely presented modern dining room. I liked the furnishings (the chairs were particularly comfortable) and the décor; overall a nice atmosphere.

We received a warm welcome and found the staff friendly but professional with an excellent sense of humour. Service was very good. The staff were very attentive and always available despite the restaurant being busy. Everything we wanted was attended to and there were no problems with any of our requests. The food was excellent; the fish was particularly good as was the apple cake dessert. There was a simple wine list but we were able to find something to go well with each course; the Portuguese Vinho Branco was particularly good. I would have liked to have seen wine suggestions or a wine flight to go with the tasting menu.

I would be very happy to dine there again and would unreservedly recommend it.

“Wonderful Restaurant - The Farmers at Welton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

I recently organised a meal for our local Lions club at the Farmers at Welton on the recommendation of one of our members. From the moment I contacted them by email the experience was a total delight. Even though it was for a Friday evening ( A busy time for any establishment.) They tailored a special menu to our price range and needs - sorted out a seating plan for twenty four people and their communication was first class. On arrival we were welcomed warmly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was memorable and the service excellent. I would have no hesitation in telling anyone. Go to the Farmers. Great value. Even greater food and service. From Caistor Lions a big thank you.

“Great Saturday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

We visited The Farmers for a Birthday lunch. The food was lovely and the staff were attentive and helpful. One of our party is gluten intolerant, this was no problem and every effort was made to offer her a wide range of choices from the A La Carte menu. The presentation of the food was fantastic with some innovative little touches. We will certainly be visiting again!
