“pleasant surprise”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

I must admit we didn't intend coming here for a meal, we were headed for somewhere close by that was packed. As we passed here, we decided to stop and see what it was like. We were pleasantly surprised inside, the décor is tasteful and the staff were immediately welcoming. We were shown to a table and although the wait was slightly longer than expected for our drinks to arrive, the service was otherwise very good. I ordered the fishcakes which came with a lovely side salad. My husband ordered the steak & mushroom pie, which he really enjoyed. My fishcakes were really lovely too and great value.

We had a really enjoyable time here, and will definitely return. Don't look too closely at the paint as it is patchy in some places, but this certainly doesn't detract from the service & food.

“brilliant unexpected evening and night”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We booked into the Farndon at the last minute - nothing was too much trouble for the owner, a warm welcome and a lovely comfortable room. Also booked my son and two grandchildren in at the last minute for dinner. This was absolutely delicious, and the children were very well catered for, followed by a peaceful night's sleep.
And a VERY reasonable total bill in the morning !

“Superb”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We have dined here three times in the last few weeks - twice as a couple and once we brought family including children. Each time we have enjoyed top quality food cooked to perfection. Staff are friendly and attentive. The restaurant is comfortable,spacious and tasteful. Nice place for just a drink and chat too - there are a few sitting areas just right for a small group..

“Poor”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

I recently visited this establishment and found it to be very poor. I ordered 1 bowl of soup and a chocolate tart for desert. I was in the pub for over an hour. The place had no other customers and i waited an hour!!!! When i complained the bar man did apologies for the delay and was very polite but then he seemed to thin this was acceptable as the soup was home made! do they make each portion as it is ordered! absolute rubbish will not be going back, especially as i am now aware of the owners poor reputation i would advise no one to visit.
