                                  Little to entice us on the menu. My fish was mostly bones and skin with very little flesh, and accompanied by a mound of tough kale. Very disappointing.

                                  Not expecting much, its a farm shop after all but we were pleasantly surprised, the welcome was good, shown to an off lounge for drinks prior to being seated in the restaurant, the lounge staff were attentive bringing our drinks whilst we viewed the menu. The service in the restaurant was just as good and our meal was wonderful both on the eye and in the eating, yes you should go and enjoy.

                                  We had a lovely meal at daylesford Farm. The food was very tasty and there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. My gin cocktail was a bit overpriced as it was full of ice. Its a lovely place to browse the shop and stop for food. I wound recommend and would definitely return

                                  We were made to feel very welcome and all the staff were excellent. The only one small point I have is that it was suggested we had bread first so we assumed the main course would take some time, however the main course arrive only a minute or two after the bread which made us feel quite rushed.

                                  It was deserted and cold. The service was somewhat random. I am sure when it is full of people it is much nicer but we were quite disappointed.

                                  Excellent service. Delish food. Wine expensive. No vegan pudding option was a dissapointment for the level the restaurant is aiming at. Menus were just plain A4 paper stapled together...could have done better there too for the level this is at.

                                  Not sure why gluten is in every dessert- who makes pavlova and brownie with wheat flour when it’s nicer without. Limited options for us across the whole menu. 😟

                                  The ambiance and setting is lovely but the food quality doesn’t match the setting. Pizza look great in menu but I didn’t live up to expectations. Fish main missed lemon Alioil as described. Cocktails very basic. Not value for money. I wouldn’t return if I was in the area. Unsure as to why they have a Michelin recommendation????

                                  Amazing, beautiful service and wonderful food, two charcoal BBQs going under the watchful eye of the chefs who were cooking perfect food with speed and efficiency. We had the minute steak and spatchcock chicken, both cooked perfectly. The sides, something I’m rarely so excited about, were as delicious as the mains. Vibrant and flavourful sales, delicious potato cubes, cooked on a steel skillet over the flames of the outdoor bbq. A lovely evening.

                                  Very poor service. Staff seemed untrained. Had to ask for items such a water. Wine poured with no chance to taste. No initiative shown by staff. Main course was fine but desert of pavlova was rock hard. ‘House’ red wine was unavailable (why was it on the menu?) with no reasonably priced alternative. No apology or explanation for this. Overall very disappointing for a venue which has a good reputation. We represented 6 families and will not be coming back.

                                  It started badly. When we sat down immediately realised that the web site menu was entirely different from the offering. If we’d wanted a smoke infused BBQ maybe we’d have gone their. They told us that the website hadn’t been updated for ages! Food was good, but inexcusably the plates were cold; amateurish service from pleasant people. Our sole was the smallest I’ve seen anywhere (it’s not an expensive fish - but their price was). I had a pizza - at £14. Gave us one menu for six of us. In fairness the manager (we asked 3 times to see him) accepted our moans and offered a generous reduction so the resultant price was just about what we would have paid for a good experience elsewhere. Came Home reeking of wood smoke. Very disappointed as we booked knowing Dalesford charges high but expecting a good evening.

                                  Having visited the farm shop on many occasions and loved their food we booked in for our anniversary at The Trough. Unfortunately our experience wasn't overly impressive. We ordered bread to start with and found it to be quite hard and with nothing but a butter knife to cut the bread it was a bit awkward. For our mains we both ordered the burger which says it comes with beetroot crisps and bacon jam but neither were present. When our order arrived the waiter didn't mention that they had (presumably) run out of these items. The burgers themselves were over-done as well and the presentation felt very much like any old pub burger. For dessert my partner ordered the strawberry pavlova but it turned out to be rhubarb, again the waiter didn't mention this (my partner likes rhubarb which is lucky!) As it was our anniversary, I also asked if it was possible to have a little brownie as an anniversary dessert and my request was sent to the restaurant but nothing happened. The cold press nut latte however is most excellent and I highly recommend it! The environment is wonderful; a beautiful restaurant in a stunning setting but unfortunately the food let it down.

                                  The food was only ok. I think I expected something better - more imaginative, and flavoursome. The service was only ok. I do hate having to ask for the next course, or the bill…..but they were “nice” people. On the really negative side, even though we left quite late , there’s no excuse for the toilets which were absolutely disgusting.

                                  Excellent good cooked out on the terrace. Really nice setting. Friendly & helpful service. One slight negative was that our main dishes arrived before our starter was finished and one of our group ordered a pizza which came several minutes after the other main dishes. The good itself was excellent however

                                  Superb food on a sunny evening. Our lamb, and chicken dishes were BBQ cooked to perfection, with delicious accompanying veg. We thanked the BBQ team personally and splashed pics and comments on social media straight away. The waiting team were attentive, knowledgeable, and engaging. But this was the first time, ever, we think...that we had to ask for a dessert menu. Of course, we always need, and expect, a short break between courses, but this went on and on....(and while busy, the waiting team weren't rushing at this point...) we just felt a bit forgotten. Frustrating, as I'd peeked at the delights on offer. After I flagged down a waiter for a dessert menu, and then waited a wee bit longer to order, the rhubarb meringue, and my choc/honeycomb brownie...were superb. So overall, the perfect place for a last minute, treat-my-partner-to dinner evening, in a sublime and sunny setting...but please keep an eye on your customers!!

                                  It was very nice food, good customer service and ambient surroundings. It was a different experience.
