I ate from the Valentines special menu...the king prawn starter was delicious, the filet steak was cooked to perfection and the mille feuille was amazing. My other half had the steak and ale pie, which was as excellent as always. Thank you For, another wonderful evening, in your company.

Popped into Farmers Boy for a lunchtime meal . The food was awful . Presentation was bad and tasted just as bad. Would never go there again if I could score a zero I would.

Having read some of the negative reviews on here, I am really surprised as we have had nothing but good things to say about the place. We booked in for Christmas day lunch £65.00 per head and were collected from where we were staying so that we could enjoy a drink without having to worry about driving. Phil and the... More

Whenever we visit grandparents living in this area, we struggle to find pubs or restaurants that provide good tasty food, and so I was expecting very little of The Farmers Boy. However, we were so very pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of the food as well as the excellent service 'with a smile' that we received. As a... More

Description
Welcome to The Award Winning Farmer's Boy Inn Longhope

Simply put, we love food. Not just for what it is, but for the experience that accompanies it. Homely surroundings, great company and conversation, attentive waiters, who become friends and of course fine wines from around the world. After an evening of gastro food delights, gourmet pies and laughter in front of the open fire retire to our courtyard of boutique individually designed rooms and drift off, to wake up to the sounds, sights and smells of the idyllic Gloucestershire countryside. Followed of course by a hearty breakfast and maybe a stroll up the majestic May Hill
