Bit unfortunate to have a table opposite two young families. Not their fault but it was noisy.

Food ok but delivery to table was slow

Pub food can be average but The Farmers’ offering was really excellent. This combined with great service made for an exceedingly enjoyable family evening meal which accommodated the many demands of 2 parents, 1 grandfather, 3 children age 6, 8 and 10 and a Springer Spaniel. Well done The Farmers team.

Our first visit post lockdown and it was great to be back. A few changes due to social distancing etc but still the freindly staff and the great food as it was before. New dishes on the menu were good additions. If this is the new normal we can cope with that! Thanks

I felt really well taken care of. As soon as I arrived I was greeted by James, smiling and professional. I requested a sunny window table if at all possible. He first directed us to a window table at the entrance but then realised a much sunnier table was available and offered it to us which absolutely made my day. We sat and had our lunch in the warm sunshine. Our waitress Tara was also very smiley and very attentive towards our needs as we had 2 young children with us. I made a point of mentioning what great service we received from the moment we entered the doors as it truly does make the world of difference to our experience. I can't wait to become a regular as we will be visiting more often.

We havent been for a while, what with Christmas and New Year, but The Farmers just gets better and better. Roasts are still just as amazing, some really nice specials on today and if you like a cheese board...... Has to be the most amount of cheese I have ever seen!! All the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. Thanks James and team - See you again soon.

Another lovely family Sunday lunch at the Farmers. It was very very busy but James and the team as always really looked after us and the food was up to its usual great standards. Service probably was a little slower than usual due to how busy it was but this wasnt an issue and actually made for a very nice and relaxed Sunday afternoon. Thanks

Excellent food outstanding service couldn’t fault it , was just unfortunate the two of us were surrounded by large loud groups which the server managed expertly - wouldn’t stop us returning but maybe we should eat in bar next time if a smaller party as couldn’t hear ourselves over noise

We booked for 5pm on a Saturday, two kids , two adults and an oap. I was a little surprised to be the only people in the dining room, not a problem but meant there was a lack of atmosphere. We ordered straight to mains and they arrived in good time. Kids meals were good portion sizes and good quality. Portion sizes of the adult meals were good with my wife's dish being huge, (not a bad thing). Two of us had the calves liver. Again was nice but lacked a bit of seasoning, remedied by the salt and pepper on the table. I would improve the dish, which is served all in a pile on the plate, by deconstructing it a bit and maybe serving the gravy in a small pot on the side instead of already poorer all over the dish just so I can choose how much or little gravy I want and where. These are minor points. Service could have been a little quicker, especially as we were the only diners, so much so we decided not to order dessert. On the whole a positive experience and we would he happy to return.

We all enjoyed our evening at the Farmers. The bread selection was nice, although I'm not sure that the chocolate bread was a good idea. The rest of the food was very good. Service was friendly and efficient.

We had Sunday lunch, which was a choice of beef, chicken or pork, all served with Yorkshire’s and lots of fresh vegetables. The portions were quite generous. We all enjoyed our food, although there was a little too much gravy with the beef, but I should have asked for it to be in a jug. Food was served by friendly waiting staff. There were quite a lot of children about, some of whom were rather loud. We will return, maybe for dinner during the week as food was very good.

Unfortunately we had to return the chef special pies as they were inedible. We were given another meal as replacement but it generally spoiled the meal which was for a special occasion.

We visited around 3pm on bank holiday Monday (26/08) it was very hot but we managed to get seating outside, the garden is perfect for children, but there isn't much shade. from what i saw of the inside it looks very cosy and welcoming, the staff were all lovely, the menus have a good choice and on a every Saturday (weather permitting) they have a hog roast.

Lovely pub including great outdoor area & hold some good organised nights, which we're definitely be trying in the future
