We had a lovely meal there on Saturday, celebrating a 50th Wedding Anniversary. Everything was as we had hoped for. Pre dinner drinks in a very comfortable lounge and plenty of space between the tables despite the restaurant being full - always a good sign. Would have no hesitation in recommending the Farmhouse for that special occasion.

Service a little slow, some ordered drinks never arrived, had to ask for the bill three times? Food was quite slow to arrive 40 minutes between starter and main course.

Really lovely food. Only let down was the fact they had no bread for my gluten free friend. Service for drinks could have been better as we had to ask them. However the outstanding quality of the food made the evening

We went to the Farmhouse at Redcoats to celebrate a family birthday. The food was very tasty and beautifully presented with the exception of my main course lamb which was extremely fatty. On mentioning this to our waitress she said she would inform the chef; a small adjustment on the bill would have been a nice gesture!

The menu choices were good and for 3 of us the food was delicious. One person in our party had a steak and wished he had chosen something else as he said it wasn’t great. One of our friends thought the service could have been better. I personally was very happy with it so it’s personal taste. Overall it was a great evening

Setting and service was lovely. Starters were wonderful and my fellow diners loved their mains. Also a nice touch that the Birthday girl received a little complimentary dessert.

My wife’s lamb was too salty as was my daughters risotto. The desserts took ages but they did give them to us for free in the end.

Lovely venue. We returned here for our wedding anniversary as we got married in the barns last July. Food was delicious and unique. Nice touch to enjoy some fresh farmhouse bread before we began our starters. Service was brilliant with a friendly and personal feel. We will return! We are keen to try the Sunday Roast!

What a peaceful garden to enjoy the yummy meal we were served. Lovely waitress - patient and helpful! Great variety on the menu and reasonable prices for the ambience and food. Ice cream portions could have been just a little larger though :-) Would definitely go again when we are able to!

It was my my partner’s birthday, for which we enjoyed excellent service of fantastic food and wines, all in a buzzy atmosphere and gorgeous setting. Particular highlights for us were the Pornstar Martini, the Tempura Feta starter, the Pan Roasted Seabass and the Malbec Gala 1 Magnum, Luigi Bosca...though not necessarily together!

I would never recommend a restaurant as it always depends on your choice of food the chef on the day etcbut if it was awful of course i might mention it
Redcoats was average

Really lovely. This was our first visit, but it won't be our last.

We had a Sunday lunch and it was really tasty. We didn't have to reach for the salt and pepper once! Food was very well cooked, and the portion sizes were large. A good choice of food to suit all tastes, not just the traditional roast. The waiting staff were very friendly and engaged with all of the diners.

Overall thoroughly enjoyable.

The vegetarian menu was very good although we had to ask for this after reading it at the bottom of the dinner menu. Probably our fault as haven’t eaten there for a while. Whole experience was extremely pleasant. Gardens were peaceful and tidy, staff were very helpful, food was excellent.

As per my ratings, it was fabulous and the attention to everything from service, food and presentation was great.
Just lacked a little something in the rain and whilst weather cannot be controlled by the farmhouse it seemed to have an effect on the ambience... Still rated it four out of five though.... A wonderful afternoon then topped off with a lovely little birthday dessert for my partner which was a great touch by the Farmhouse itself.
Will be going back!
