As a family of four, we booked for 5.30pm and visited the Farmshop to eat following a shopping trip to Bicester.
For starters we shared the garlic bread with cheese and mozzarella balls. We all enjoyed these but I particularly liked the sour dough based garlic bread.
Our mains were the chicken salad, tiger prawn tagliatelle, fish & chips and the Farmhouse burger.
All the meals were good portions and really well presented.
Service was great with all the staff friendly and helpful.
Add on the 2 cocktails, a prosecco and coke and the bill was just over £100 which I thought was perfectly reasonable.
Overall we had a nice experience following some stressful shopping..

Oh, I forgot to mention that half way home to London we got a call from the restaurant to say we had forgotten one of our shopping bags.. we were horrified but very very grateful that they were happy to post the bag bag to us at no charge! Received it today.. Thank you!!!

My second visit. Overall an average experience. Wouldn’t rush back. Meat was over cooked and no peppercorn sauce available. Was replaced with new plate.

Extremely expensive and the food was just OK.

£18 for half a roast chicken without any sides.... ridiculous.... since when has a simple roast chicken cost £36 in a restaurant / Cafe?

Probably due to the nature of the wooden tables, however ours was extremely sticky and therefore gives the impression they are not being cleaned properly.

The girls serving were very pleasant and accommodating, however the couple of guys there were more like bouncers than pleasant waiters.

Overall a VERY disappointing and expensive experience which I will not be repeating.

Our waitress was extremely attentive and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. She got a cushion for our daughter when asked, was attentive and clearly knew when we required extra drinks etc. I cannot praise her enough. She was really on the ball when our daughter was sick after eating too much ‘Mac & cheese’. She did not complain or fuss, she was straight on to clearing up the mess and organised those around her extremely effectively.

The food was delicious, portions were extremely generous and pricing very competitive.

Couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough.

Food was excellent and so was our waiter. I could not give ambience or noise a true grading as we sat outside with our dog. Shame the outdoor seating is at the back but would still go again.

It was hard to get the attention of staff but once we did, they were very helpful and friendly. The portions were large and the food was lovely. The overall ambiance was rustic and homemade. The discount for being a local is great. Thank you.

Although the service was great, it was extremely cold and the food and hot drinks were therefore also cold.

The staff were great, very friendly and knowledgable. The food was delicious, and great value for money. We had the full breakfast to set us up for the day, and it was exactly what we needed. Every ingredient was perfectly cooked (the poached eggs were just wow), the amount was exactly right without being too much. All in all, a great breakfast experience and highly recommended as a way to start the day.
If I had to find fault, and really it’s a minor minor thing, then the only thing I could think of is that maybe the butter for the toast needed to be warmed slightly to make it easier to spread. But it didn’t detract from what was a wonderful breakfast that we both really enjoyed.

The atmosphere was great, relaxed and very good and efficient service. Friendly staff and delicious food and drink.
Only 1 minor irritant- the table was sticky but all over, so unlikely to be from a spill, maybe the wood finish, but not too nice!

Had a lovely late breakfast at the Farmshop - everything cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was great and lively and was most certainly worth the early drive for. I would certainly recommend as part of a Bicester visit!

We were very surprised to see that a service charge of 12.5 percent was added to our bill. Nothing had suggested this would happen. The restaurant could have been doing with better heating due to being very cold, which meant our food went cold quickly. For the price you didn’t get much for a breakfast for two with service charge costing 30.00 pound. I will not be returning to this restaurant.
