“The little touches make it 5 star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Yes this is a great hotel and yes the staff and food is top notch and yes they rear, grow and cured everything on site but its the small touches that make this hotel really stick out from all the others. They remember your names each time, they dont pester you every five second but always seem to be there just as you need something, they make there own butter! This is a great hotel and a whole lot more. Congrats.

Myself and my husband stopped in for lunch on the off chance (our third visit now) having not book which in hide sight we would normally have done were told that the chef was off today but rather than turn us away they offered us a charming snack menu with a selection of sandwiches and a choice of some lovely hot meals including sweet and sour pork from there own reared pigs. A real effort was made to make us feel welcome and nothing was to much effort. Many thanks to John and team.

Great staff, food and hotel. I have serious food allergies which most hotels and chefs either dont understand or dont have the skill or knowledge to over come this was not the case at the Farthings not only did the staff understand but went out of there way to change and adapt the menu to fit in with my allergies. I will be back and will be telling everyone about this gem.

What can I say, simply a great place to relax and have great food and wine... have become rather a fan of The Farthings and such a pleasant change from the normal run of the mill places. The Chef "Shaun" was getting excited about the Autumn season when I spoke with him in the garden, he was explaining how the menu will be changing over the coming weeks to include all the things that are coming into season... such as Venison which I had this weekend, my first of the season delicious. Thanks again everyone.

Room Tip: If you don't need Wi Fi request Garden it is the most beautiful room....

This is without question one of the finest hotels myself and my my wife have stayed at. The room we stayed in was said to be one of the "guest" rooms but was very large and very well presented with super views I would love to have seen a "master" room next time I will dig a little deeper. The staff were very plesent and helpful without being pestering and the choice of menu and quality of the food was again superb. Wish we had stayed longer. Special thanks to Dan for all his help.

Stopped off for sunday lunch a few weeks back, only by chance because we saw a sign outside and I must say what a gem this Restaurant is. We had three roast chicken and a fish so nothing you would thing worth writing about but it really was great, homemade stuffing from home reared pigs, fresh figs and home cured fish and home smoked chicken for starters its hard to explain other than to say the place just screams Class. We paid less than £25 per head for two courses so a great price for the quality of food and the fantastic service we had. Will be back to stay.

Super little hotel, lovely rooms and helpful staff but real gem was the food. Home smoked meats and homemade honeycombe ice cream a massive hit with the girlfriend. Only wish we could have taken a tub home!
