“Amazing food”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

We visited the Farsyde with another couple. When entering the restaurant, first impressions were that the bar area was a little scruffy. Sitting down for a drink the service was good though, and the bar staff attentive. We had a table in the middle of the restaurant which was nice with a good atmosphere. A good extensive menu, lots of choice and reasonable price. Service was ok, but they could improve by pooring the wine and checking that it was ok.. The food however was great. overall a nice restaurant, but if they looked to improve the tidiness of the restaurant and the service it would improve the overall experience.

Thank you for writing a fair and good review. We will definitely take your points on board. However my staff are trained that they must always offer a taste of the wine and pour it on the first bottle. So I'm surprised to hear that this didn't happen and I will follow it up.

“Top notch”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We visited here after researching the tripadvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. I can echo previous remarks of attentive staff, and that adequate time was left between each course, not to feel push back out the door. The menu was varied and in detail and the extras such as olives, bread and dips a nice bonus

“Very nice meal”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

This is a top quality restaurant where the staff really look after you. We visited one evening and had a very good meal - it is clear that they put a lot of care into preparing and cooking the food and are rightly proud of the food.

The restaurant itself is nice and open with modern decor and furniture. It was busy when we went in but not crowded but airy.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. We do really try to make our veggie dishes delicious and tasty and not simply the norm. A lot of our meat eater customers also love our veggie dishes. We look forward to seeing you again.
