I have come here a few times and the food is always good and the atmosphere is always nice and pretty lively in here but the service needs some improvement. It's starts of good when you walk in and get a drink but as you have your meal they forget about you so you sit with empty plates for quite sometime. I have noticed everyone that works here is very friendly (espically Amy -I think her name is) but there is one girl who I heard her colleague call her Vicky? she really needs to work her on her manners attitude and customer service skills. Theres no please and thank you from her and she says your meal from about 5 metres away from the table, puts it down and walks off. She is just rude in general.
Other than that everything else is usually pretty good.

The food is good value for money and the place has a good atmosphere, but we were given a 10 minute reminder that we had ran out of time and that they needed the table for the next reservation. It appears the bookings are only 2 hour slots. There service isn't quick enough for this timescale. Very rude!

Our Walking group had such a wonderful meal. The menu offered a wide selection of dishes and gave everyone a superb choice. All the food was excellent and beautifully presented and was served efficiently by the very friendly staff. The atmosphere was very relaxed which helped to make the whole occasion most enjoyable. Thank you.

I came into the old farmhouse for dinner football was on and the bar was pretty full. there were two girls working and decided to go into the resturant. we were seated quickly and ask for drinks. we ordered chicken fajitas and farmhouse chicken which was very nice we both enjoyed it. during the meal the waitress who i think was the manager (she had a bun in her hair) came over asking if we would like more drinks which was nice instead of having to ask and made our stay very welcome will definatly be reaturning.
