Everything is prepared in our open kitchen, including the sourdough bread, baked every day using our "mother" and our handmade butter. Meat, fish and vegetables are cooked over charcoal on our "Bertha" oven for incredible flavour.
Our approach is simple; handpicked ingredients, great cooking, carefully chosen wine and knowledgeable service in a refreshingly contemporary space.

Excellent food - top class ingredients prepared in a modern but not pretentious way. Service was outstanding. Strongly recommended for lunch or any meal!
An excellent place, delicious food and very friendly. Not cheap, but good value given the quality of the food and cooking. Olive bonbons - very tasty. Venison - delicious! Lamb - also delicious. Well organised taste experience. Dessert was also amazing.
Really great atmosphere.
The food is well balanced and so good.
The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive.
Fantastic food, as always, enjoyed by our party of four including one vegetarian. Fine dining style food without the pretentiousness. Always something different on the menu even for the veggie. We were all in near ecstasy whilst eating Farmyard’s Chocolate Bar
I loved the starter: broccoli soup with almonds and a blue cheese ravioli. I was a bit disappointed with the smoked celeriac as a main. I'm having a good at vegetarianism but I found the main dish options for this lifestyle surprisingly a bit lacking. The dessert was average in my opinion. I can't remember the name of the dish but it had an orange and ginger sponge which again, just my opinion, could have looked a bit more appetising.
I would like to give this restaurant another go perhaps when the menu is tweaked again since I love their ethos of no waste and local sourcing!
Beouf sharing dish was amazing. 4th visit and never disappointed
Best food I’ve eaten in Norwich for a long time. Excellent in every way.
Pre theatre dinner good value, although we had to ask for the special menu. Starters ok, mains and desert better.
Had a lovely meal, food was really good quality and staff very friendly.
We have been a few times now, and we have always had a really good experience, either as a couple or with family.
Food beautifully presented, and staff very knowledgeable about food combinations and wines.
Warm friendly atmosphere.
Having been to the farmyard before and been very impressed we thought we’d go again with a couple of friends. The service as always was friendly however we felt that new staff were not clued up enough on the food nor drinks. Every time we asked what a dish was the waitress had to ask & as lovely & polite as she was she really should know the menus inside out prior to any shifts. We ordered a bottle of white wine, however at the end of the meal found out it was a £42 bottle, had this of been brought to our attention toon prior a cheaper bottle would have been chosen. On paying for the meal we went halves with our friends, however after they paid we paid our half only to be charged the full amount near £200, an honest mistake but one that takes longer to refund than take incorrect Payment for. Food was awesome as always and we will definitely go again but feel maybe staff need to be more clued up. Too many rookie mistakes albeit innocent ones
Absolutely delicious food ..!
Having been there a few times already it still pretty much lives up to my expectations, food is excellent, service generally is very good, my only criticism is it still seems to be a little to rushed with main course pretty much being delivered to the table as soon as the starter plates were cleared away and desert menus and resulting requests for what we would like got a bit to much as we asked for another few minutes to let our main course settle,but It is still a great experience, so thank you.
The sharing steak for two was the best meal I’ve had in a long time!! An extensive wine list and the staff were so friendly. Can’t wait to visit again.
Good wine and food, excellent service. They use some unnecessary fancy wording but ultimately if you can see through that or wish to ask, you’ll get on fine.
Outstanding! Food was sublime. Ambience perfect. We’ll be back!
We booked last minute for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. We thought it was top notch, we had the Lunch set menu, the food was fantastic, really delicious and excellent value. Many thanks, we will come again.
We have been several time and this was a great experience as usual. The food is excellent and there are good vegetarian choices for friends. The staff are friendly and we had a lovely night, as did our guests.
Stunning in everyway. Good food, great staff and great interior. Faultless
Pleasant welcome and excellent service through out
Perfect, as ever! There is no better place to eat in Norwich.
Lovely place with quality food! Outstanding service and friendly atmosphere. I come back every year on my birthday .
As usual food was excellent, we loved the new venison dish!
The overall meal was extremely good and the starters and main courses were wonderful. As a table, we all had a different main and shared a range of starters and sides and every dish was well presented and delicious.
Our waitress was excellent and she also recommended a wine for the table which was very good. The only marginally disappointing element of the meal were the desserts (although two of the four diners thoroughly enjoyed theirs). I did not personally enjoy mine at all, particularly after the quality of the first parts of the meal.
I will certainly be returning however and have already recommended this to several friends. Many thanks to the team at Farmyard.
My shoulder beed was a little more fatty than hoped . But overall great experience , fantastic dessert
enjoyed the meal especially the snacks and starter nave alreeady recomended it to friends
Excellent dinner for all four of us and delicious Prosecco. I'm still thinking about all three of the courses I had two days on!
Cold restaurant ,poor heating system.
Food very average, albeit quite tasty.
Not particularly good value for money.
Waiter was friendly and accommodating.
Fantastic food, best meal we’ve had in Norwich. Great service, lovely venue. Couldn’t fault it. We will be back!
Thoroughly enjoyable lunch. Food beautifully presented, good amount of time between courses and very pleasant, friendly staff.
Always a good dinner at the Farmyard. I went with my boyfriend for the 3rd time and it never disappoints. Food is creative and tasty, the service is good and friendly.
My only regret is that I was to full to take a dessert.
Another great night at the farmyard and again fantastic food thanks to you all see you soon
Great food, friendly service, liked being able to see the kitchen.
Farmyard never disappoints always have a great time
Truly beautiful, tasty meal in lovely relaxed atmosphere. Great range on menu to suit all tastes. Superb service.
Too rushed. Next course came up while still eating. Had to ask them to slow down.
First visit and perfect location for a meal after seeing a film at Cinema City. The staff were lovely, friendly and attentive. Loved the open kitchen. We went midweek and it was quiet I can imagine that it could get noisy if it was full of people. Every bite of food was delicious and we will definitely return! Price was spot on for the lovely food and drinks that we enjoyed.
Food is amazing & the staff are so lovely and friendly!! Will definitely be going back again!
Excellent food and ambience.
All courses eaten were of high standard, though mackerel starter was a little under-seasoned.
