A wonderful dining experience in every way. Highly reccommend, produce is always fresh and locally sourced and cooked to perfection. The service has always been outstanding.

Lovely set up overlooking rolling countryside, cushions and blankets for comfort, lovely food and friendly service. Sunday breakfast was delicious, good coffee, great bacon butty and excellent eggs on sourdough. Also nice little pop up shop for added interest.

Beautiful setting
Ordered drinks waited a while to receive them. Ordered a sharing platter of bread sticks and dips- took a while to come £15 for 5 bread sticks, three cracker breads and three very small dishes of dips all of which were very tasty. Out main courses then arrived all were delicious but the portions were very small for main courses (think appetiser size main price) I had a delicious chicken dish which was delightful. We ordered more drinks at this point which didn’t come until we’d finished eating. The place was busy but not over run and appeared to be very well staffed. We were offered a pudding menu but declined £140 for four which was 4 x soft drinks- 4 x cocktails 1 x sharing platter 3 x main course and 1 x appetiser + side.
Beautiful setting, lovely atmosphere, expensive small eats and very slow underwhelming service.
An enjoyable experience just left feeling dissatisfied

Lovely place to meet up , food great, setting fabulous, staff great. However we did feel a little ignored towards the end of our meal - my pudding never arrived, despite a reminder - probably didn't need it anyway.....

Primrose Hill Farm is in a beautiful setting with stunning views. Great to be able to eat outside on a sunny or warm day. Just bring extra layers if it’s chilly as the food is so good. Everything we ordered was delicious and the service excellent too. We will be back!

We had a great dining experience at The Kitchen. We arrived early to go for a walk first and were given a little map showing a local walk. The menu, although not huge, easily catered for fussy teens, veggies and meat eaters and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend The Kitchen to friends and we are hoping to visit again soon.

Our first chance to meet friends for lunch- luckily the weather was OK- no rain but chilly. It would have been almost perfect had there been heaters .. but overall it was very enjoyable. The welcome was good and the service was enthusiastic if a little out of practise. The menu was small but covered all the bases well. The star is the view over the stunning countryside

The barn has wonderful views, tables are well spaced and we felt really well looked after.
The food was original, well presented, tasty, and I could have eaten most of the menu, happily. I will certainly go back, as soon as lockdown allows!

We had a lovely evening out at The Kitchen. Primrose Farm is a beautiful setting and the evening ambience was stunning. The staff were delightful and welcoming and the food absolutely superb. Its moderately expensive but then that felt entirely fair for a special occasion and for such outstanding food.

It is a delight to see The Kitchen at PHF. The tam are doing an excellent job. We chose the fishcakes which were excellent and beautifully served.

The only disappointment was that when my wife asked for a non alcoholic Seedlip we got a very sharp response, NO all the drinks are on the menu. As they re having cocktail hours I would have thought it made sense to have a non alcoholic version for those that either don't drink or are driving.

Yes we very much enjoyed our visit and will return.

Great environment. Attentive staff. Salmon starter superb. Partridge in Palma Ham too dry as served. Needed a sauce which with the construction of the dish could have been served on the side.

Our recent evening visit to The Primrose Hill Farm pop-up restaurant was a very enjoyable dining experience, only spoilt by our order going astray and having to wait just over 1 hour for our mains. We were disappointed we were not even offered a cup of coffee as an apology. Despite this, we hope things improve on our next visit to this amazing large open scenic location. The sticky toffee pudding has always drawn me back to The Kitchen on numerous occasions.

It was nice enough, but having looked at the menu online, we had all chosen what we were going to eat and so we were quite surprised and a bit disappointed that it was just the limited grazing menu on offer.
It seemed a bit chilly and drafty in there.
No major complaints, but as it was a birthday celebration, there didn't seem to be much of a convivial atmosphere in there. Maybe it is better in the evenings, perhaps a bit warmer with candles on the table.

This restaurant is lovely, the food was amazing and reasonably priced and beautifully presented. The drinks were fab too. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The restaurant is well decorated, plenty of car parking and interesting quirks like old plates and cutlery.

The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the website isn’t up to date and the menu on the website is not actually available. When on site the options are very limited, we didn’t mind as the food was so good but it would have been good to have some additional options to choose from.

I would definitely recommend and come back again tho!
