    So nice to have a delicatessen with a coffee shop where you can try the tasty selection on offer! Very helpful staff and welcoming atmosphere. Whether you have lunch/breakfast or only have time for a coffee, it is a very pleasant place to relax and enjoy the ambience.I would suggest booking a table is wise at busy times as it is proving popular!

    There wasn’t a single dish on the menu for a child, ie no pasta of any type either tomato and basil sauce, nor any type of pizza nor any type of small burger, so our toddler ate nothing until we got home

    We live locally and tried this lovely Bistro for the first time. We had all 6 starters to share and they were fabulous and really delicious. Just enough for a light lunch and the chance to taste a lot of lovely new dishes. Great value for money and lovely service. Will be back.

    Wonderful Sunday lunch!! Amazing food from such a small kitchen. The vegetables were delightful and plenty of them. The meat was delicious. All topped off with super service - friendly and professional. Fantastic - my concern is that getting a table in the future will be tough.

    Such a wonderful experience at Ferma! Our new favourite local place! We enjoyed a late lunch and the fresh locally sourced ingredients used to create varied plates were heavenly! I could have happily eaten a little plate of everything! It’s tapas style designed to share! A really fabulous meal beautifully presented and served with a smile! Couldn’t resist a shop in the deli / gorgeous fresh fruit and vegetables!! We look forward to returning! Thank you 🎉☀️🥂

    This was our first visit and won’t be our last. The food is based on small sharing plates and the ingredients our sourced from their own farm shop. The menu changes daily, depending on what is available on that day from the farm shop. The food, wine, service and ambiance was excellent. The staff were enthusiastic,attentive and pleased to engage. Well done to all the team 🙏

    Ferma a is a wonderful local addition to quality restaurants in the area. The fairly small space is really delightful, and the service very attentive. We were allocated a traditional table with four chairs for the two of us plus our 2-year-old, but when we spied an adjacent free table with a banquette we preferred it was no trouble at all to move us across - and it was pointed out that that table was nearer to the toys I hadn't noticed were gathered discreetly nearby. These kept our son occupied throughout the meal! The focaccia with marmite butter was sensational. The rib and onion pie was so fantastic, we ordered a second. The Greek Salad was not a traditional Greek salad by most interpretations, but I am not Greek and perhaps the addition of watermelon is authentic - who cares, it was certainly delicious! The lamb tagine was tasty enough, though the cuts of lamb meat were fatty which is not ideal for a tagine, plus the lovely couscous wrapped in aubergine would have been better doubled since it is a sharing plate.... The small plates/ tapas concept is fun and the choice is wide enough - it enables you to sample more than you would with one dish which is great. I wonder how much repeat business the restaurant will sustain with this concept alone though. I overheard some elderly diners on another table who seemed to be struggling with the concept and wanted to order something each for themselves as is more traditional. Perhaps a small choice of single-plate main courses in addition might sustain interest and encourage returning custom? I want to be able to visit this lovely new place for many years to come, so I really want them to think ahead as to what will keep customers returning, not just once more but many times for years. Diners already struggling with the small plates concept with no more traditional alternative are very unlikely to return, however good they found the food. I am writing this review as I care about this place!

    visited for a small plates evening, which is such a lovely idea. Nice intimate feel and some beautifully decorated plates of food with inspiring flavours. A little disappointed with the rib eye plate, barely any meat, mostly fat and the ‘chips’ were not chips but more wedges of baked potatoes. The Thai monkfish & mussels tasted delicious but missed a little rice to soak up the sauce. The service was almost so good that sometime I had barely put my fork down before the plate was whisked away! Nice bottle of wine and a really delicious citrus tart finished our evening.

    The scrambled eggs with salmon were lovely and the coffee was really well done. Delicious. My only minor observation was that perhaps 2 slices of toast would have made for a more filling breakfast. Overall though I couldn’t fault the service, ambience or quality.
