“Best steaks around.”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

To balance out the negative review, I'd like to share my experiences at the Fare and Fowl. I've gone a number of times since July, 2008 and each time has been good. The fillet mignon and the steaks are very good and are the reason I keep going back. Deserts are pretty good, but I must admit that the vegetables in winter leave a lot to be desired. The pub also carries beer from the nearby Churchkey Brewery, which is a nice treat.

Thursday nights are live act nights and can be very entertaining. One singer in particular knew a song in Japanese and sang it for my wife (who is from Japan), making her night very special.

Is it the best restaurant in the world? No, of course not. Is it a one star restaurant? No, that would just be an expression of one person's emotional outburst. Go any time of the year and you will get great steaks. Go in the summer and you will get great steaks and great vegetables.

“worst food ever”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

we dropped in for dinner on our way through tweed. we were totally disappointed in our visit. Not only was the service very slow but once the food arrived it was awful. The french onion soup had a layer of grease an inch deep across the top and was inedible...in fact the wait staff did not even charge us for it because she could see the floating grease layer. The philly steak and cheese was so overcooked as to appear to be shoe leather. The chicken wings had obviously been hauled from the freezer and thrown into the microwave. The fries were undercooked in contrast to the chicken fingers which were overcooked....to top it off the restaurant was full of flies which swarmed around the tables waiting to descend on the uneaten food. They had plenty to feast on. DONT GO HERE!
