    The food was amazing, tasted good and was well presented. The service provided by the barman specifically was very good. He was able to spot when we needed something, asked if we needed drinks when the waitress hadn't done, provided the correct cutlery when the waitress hadn't done, asked if we wanted to order desserts when the waitress hadn't. He was brilliant. The waitress....not so good.

    Our first visit to Hiltonbury Farmhouse for a long time. We booked for 6.15pm, and my wife was keen to try the roasts, but as we came in they told us that there was only one roast beef and one roast chicken left, and in a minute, the beef had gone too. Food is served till 7pm, but the lesson seems to be that if you want the roast, you perhaps need to get there well before 6, I think. There was a slight end of evening feel to the whole atmosphere and service, after what was no doubt a busy summer day. Having said all this, the food (roast chicken for my wife; lamb rump for me, after a chicken and apricot terrine starter) were all excellent. Also perhaps worth noting that the lamb was on a board as 'Gareth's recommendation', but when I ordered it there was general puzzlement about whether it was an available dish. The chef did a variation, without the asparagus, which was very nice, but it added to the slight sense of disorganisation

    Whilst my meal was very flavoursome, I felt the portion size was small compared to the price charged. A prawn and coconut curry that had four prawns in it. A bit stingy I felt considering prawn was the main ingredient. When I was asked by the server if my meal was okay I mentioned the lack of prawns. She was apologetic (it wasn't her fault though!) and offered to bring me some prawns in a bowl. I declined this as I'd rather have had them in the curry!!

    We took a friend to this place for her 60th birthday, it turned out an absolute disaster! We ordered Chicken schnitzel, and the Chicken bit of it was so tiny, maybe not even 5-7 cm at the longest side, more embarrassing was the two half lettuces that were served beside it, both halves were gone off, you could see the brown bits so obvious that we dared to even touch them, at some point I thought they had grilled them, which was not the case. We also had a side salad which was served in a tiny bowl and almost all the vegetables in there, especially the rockets, had gone off and had turned almost yellow, the foul odor could not be ignored! stay away from this place!

    Had a lovely evening with family, food was good, but choice for two of us vegetarians was poor. Two of the veggie dishes were not available due to a new menu coming in two weeks, limiting us to curry or pizza. It did make me wonder if the dishes are cooked from scratch on site or bought in, then cooked, if it’s the later, then I feel it’s over priced.

    My son is in Southampton University and we called here on on our way back from Gatwick. We wanted a nice pub lunch .It was a beautiful day so we sat outside .The staff also offered to put the patio heaters on when it went cloudy. We had the 4 starters for 24 pounds , hummus, bellypork, calmari and chicken strips and I was really full as the portions are generous My son had the Venison pie and it was stunning It's a beautiful pub with amazing food, lovely ambience and great friendly service Highly recommended

    Considering how busy it was the service was very good and the food came out very quickly. They even had a large party outside. The staff were great with our kids which makes for a nice meal for us. My husbands fish batter was a little over done but appreciate this is easily done. My roast was lovely and a great portion size.

    We did have a nice meal, although tablecloth would have been nice, even if only a paper one. Last time I had roast chicken it was almost 1/2 a chicken - not this time, small piece (nicely cooked) and made up for with lots of roast potatoes. The roast is very nice and I like the option to have a mini pud and coffee to finish. Slightly on the expensive side, but OK for an occasional treat.
