Son 1 ordered tuna melt toastie which he really enjoyed. It has hearty and lots of filling. Son 2 ordered burger off the kids menu. The... More

I have always rated this place as outstanding, sadly this evening I was disappointed. It's a while since I visited the Farmers and it has clearly lost its vision. The place has the appearance of management who've given up. The food whilst not poor was less than mediocre. Burgers served in buns that were clearly a week old, stale. The... More

Whilst I appreciate you taking the time to review the Farmer's Arms, it is really rather too much to read that you believe that "the place has the appearance of management who've given up." Given that I am that management and I work from opening until closing six, sometimes seven days a week, I can assure that I most certainly... More

Having eaten here many times over the last 20 years I have seen managers come and go . This pub has always had a loyal following and I'm glad to see they are still offering good food at reasonable prices . Dogs are welcomed outside so a very pleasant lunch was enjoyed whilst sitting in the sun .

We went mainly for the large wooden play area for the kids to let off some steam after a long car journey with swings and a slide. We had a generally pleasant evening listening to an open mike session, chatting, eating outside, and able to watch the kids playing. The food was good, the service was a bit on the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Farmer's Arms, we are glad you enjoyed your visit. We are sorry you thought the service was a little slow but we are glad that you thought the staff 'helpful and happy'. Our open mic night is a source of great frustration to us, the level of musical talent is always... More

Choose to drive out here Saturday tea time as a change. When we arrived the place was empty apart from a couple of locals sitting at the bar chatting to staff, of which there was plenty. Order drinks looked at the menu that seemed limited but ok. Tryed to order the special but it was then rubbed of the board... More

Lunchtime, Thursday 22nd September, eight customers already out/inside eating or drinking - i.e. very quiet. Welcoming smile and service from the barman, food orders given so all looked good. Our family of five adults and young child sat outside and food started arriving. Two orders of toasted sandwiches came without bowls of wedges as ordered, so had to go back... More
