Called in here with my wife one evening for a meal in the Farmers Bar. It was a cold night but the real fire we sat beside helped to warm us up. We both had a starter and a main course. The menu had set themes for different days. We both had Fish and Chips as it was "Fish Friday". Other nights included steak night, which featured a free bottle of wine, and a curry night on Mondays.
The fish was huge and cooked well with a nice crispy, not soggy, batter.
Service was excellent and although there was a small mistake with the bill, this was soon rectified by our waiter, Sam, who was very welcoming and attentive throughout.
The only downside was the fact that the restaurant was very quiet, indeed for a period we were the only guests. I guess this was to do with the weather as we were told that the bar had been a lot busier earlier in the evening.
Definitely worth the visit and will certainly be returning. less

Thank you for reviewing the 'Fish and Chip Friday' offer. I am delighted that you enjoyed your meal and I will pass your comments onto the waiting staff and chefs. We have started to do more offers in the Farmers Bar as we are keen to let people know that everyone is welcome, not just residents, and that all our food is locally sourced and freshly prepared. I am pleased that you will return again in the future.
