Farm @ Friday Street
As was expected, a great restaurant/bar staffed by great people in fantastic surroundings. Emma is to be congratulated on how she runs the place. Food cooked and presented to perfection, I really cannot rate this place highly enough.
Found the food lacking on this occasion and didnt eat my main course!
Very well looked after by Rikki,thank you . All as ordered & an excellent breakfast for 4 of us.
Excellent food and service. Will definately return
We visit once a month as a group , we always get a lovely welcome from Hannah and excellent service . Food and atmosphere always right and never noisy.
Not my first time. Has a lovely comfortable feel. Food was good. Had nice steaks but could have perhaps done with proper steak knives! Service was also very good. Will definitely be back.
We were unfortunate yet again to lunch whilst a wake was in progress. Insufficient staff led to delays in delivering main course..an hour after order. A platitudinous excuse of waiting 20 minutes between courses,one of us had a Scotch Egg as a starter,is irrelevant as the wait was 40 minutes. Again only 3 choices of ale,all prices of alcohol seem to increase on each visit. When mains arrived ,to be fair,they were very good & up to standard.There are many other good food outlets locally more reasonably priced,of equal quality & better service.
The lesson learned is never lunch when the pub is holding a wake.
Great service and very impressed with food a great choice and quality very good.
Only criticism would be the kids mac and cheese (which was really good) was served in a hot skillet on a hot plate - surely this is a health and safety issue.
My children are 4 and the waitress just said be careful it's hot...understatement i couldn't touch it it was that hot.
If my kids had touched it they would have burnt themselves. Kids meals should not be served on hot plates.
From arrival to exit staff were warm and friendly and were very attentive. Coped with birthday song and 3 year old grandson with good humour. Final bill was good value for memorable birthday lunch
We visited on a cold and wet evening, but were welcomed into the bar and show to a lovely table that was quiet but not isolated. Our food was really lovely and great value... both our meals were very tasty and we enjoyed the dining experience very much. My only slight gripe was that my wife ordered a large glass of Sauvignon Blanc wine with her meal and I was rather surprised to see it on our final bill at £9-85..for a glass of wine! Perhaps Im behind the times, but I did think that this was rather overpriced in the setting of a pub.
But other than that, it was great value and a very nice experience and we will definitely return...but will go with the house wine in future!
Like the place but the food is quite average. Staff nice and everything else good but food needs to up its game.
A very nice meal in a pleasant atmosphere. Would certainly return.
We have been to The Farm on a number of occasions for a roast and always enjoyed it, typically on a Sunday between 2.00 & 3.00pm. On this occasion we had friends down from Wakefield who regularly eat out for Sunday Dinner. They were not impressed, especially with the price, £15.95 for a roast dinner. "We would have paid £10.00 for two at home for just the same meal", was their comment. I would have argued the case had the food been up to its usual standard but it it wasn't. At 5.15pm the food appeared and tasted somewhat tired, especially the roast potatoes.
Not what we expected.
On the plus side the staff were as always excellent.
We waited ages to be served. The staff were all very nice and professional but slow. We didn’t order any bread and oil because we waited so long. The calamari wasn’t cooked properly (we couldn’t be bothered to complain). We had a roast turkey each and felt the potatoes were over cooked and the turkey was just slices taken out of a packet you’d get from the supermarket. The vegetables were lovely though and there was lots of them. We shared a chocolate brownie which was also very nice. A large glass of wine was £7- ridiculous! We have eaten at the following Whiting and Hammond restaurants: The Cricketers Inn, The Chaser, The Rose and Crown and The Mark Cross Inn and the Farm at Friday Street is the worst! The place is really nice inside and out and the decor is lovely but the food really let it down.
We often go to the Farm for lunch. However this time was surprised when presented with the bill. The cost of two large glasses of Chardonnay wine which is usually £14.70 had risen to £19.20.
I guess in future it that it would be advisable to ask the price before ordering drinks.
First class Service from Debbie and great food plenty of it very relaxed atmosphere the acoustic set it the garden was a nice touch on a Sunday ..
Wonderful breakfast and good value. Have frequented this establishment before for lunch and dinner so know the food is always good and freshly cooked. Highly recommend.
We had a very enjoyable evening. Both the food and the service was very good. We will certainly go back.
Wonderful as always :)
Food very good as usual but service not the usual high standard. Arrived 12.05.No menus. No printer cartridges & only 1 member of staff on bar. Long delay to place order & had to go to the bar & wait to do so.(Wake ).Limited choice of beer available.
Order placed 1.43. but when food arrived ,all else was forgiven.
I have eaten here a lot in the past. Always good with locally sourced food. This time around the service was a little slow and steak rather fatty (I realise this can't always be helped). It is quite expensive; for example a starter prawn cocktail £7 and two small bottles of diet coke £6.50. But would still recommend as a decent varied menu.
On this visit, service was poor and food not as good as previous visits. It was one of my favourite places to eat, but not sure now whether we will go again, when there are lots of good restaurants in Eastbourne.
Nice waitress, good food, all you expect when eating out !
Lovely food, this is the second time we have visited and enjoyed it just as much as on our first visit.
always great food, atmosphere and excellent service!
We had a very nice meal in a relaxing atmosphere. The service is very good and we will be going back soon.
We love visiting the Farm at Friday Street, you always get a warm welcome from the team and the menu has a good mix of all your favourites plus some exciting new things to tempt you!
Always a good experience, friendly welcome, professional service, good food at good prices .
The food was poor and not as good as a carvery but twice the price. But the thing that was really noticable was the staff chatting about what they had been upto and the constant chatter that could be heard by the diners. I'm not saying dont talk but they should be made aware that they can be heard and it doesn't give a professional image.
Excellent menu, service, friendly staff, lovely experience
Staff excellent but food not as good as previous visit chicken in salad tasted of chicken ham andchips expensive
Love the atmosphere good service good food and friendly staff
Nice ambience Good food Good selection Excellent service Very friendly.
Particularly enjoyed the Orange and Clementine Mr Fritz
Lovely pub, great food and very friendly staff. Really enjoyed it.
Sent soup back as it was warm, then the same happened with my curry. Just goes to prove that the food is microwaved. Waitress was apologetic but that was it, they could at least of given us a little deduction off the bill.
Very poor service from beginning to end. Only had one steak available to order at 7.00 pm at the beginning of dinner service, and then when we did order food it took over a hour to come out to the table and only once I’d asked for it.
The vegan burger and award winning fish and chips were unacceptable. The fish had been doused in so much salt it made it inedible and the vegan burger was so dry it just crumbled to dust as soon as you tried to eat it.
We ordered deserts and more drinks which took 45minutes to come to the table.
When the server brought the bill she said she had taken off a coffee as we had waited so long for our food.
Not a cheap night at £100.00 for 4 people but very very disappointing and we were celebrating my sons 21st and the whole night was ruined due to the poor service and awful food
Found staff to be very helpful and always smiling they certainly new their jobs
Always a very good experience, a warm welcome, good menu, good food and nice atmosphere , busy but not noisy.
A brilliant family lunch with great food, perfect service and even better atmosphere courtesy of the guitarist and accompanying singer. A surprise but made a perfect end to a wonderful lunch!
See you soon Friday St team?
Have used the Farm a lot over the last few years and have always been very happy with both the food and the staff Unfortunately on our visit this time the food was not up to the Farms usual standard. We ate at about 1.30 pm and the waitress was lovely and no complaints there Two of us had the ham egg and chips and as my granddaughter age 25 said the portions were not as large as they usually are? The chips were cold and and not crisp at all and the ham was wafer thin .The hottest thing on the plate were the eggs! My daughter in laws fish and chips was also not up to your usual standard . We were sooo surprised as up until then we have been regular customers to the Farm celebrating birthdays and anniversarys with you . Just a suggestion re the fish and chips? Can you please revert to plates and not boards😏Please don't let your standards slip as they have always been excellent all I can say is it was a special celebration lunch and we were very disappointed
