We popped in here on the off-chance, so were pleased that there was a table available. The reception was warm and friendly, the decor and layout are pleasant and clean, and the instructions on how to order were explained clearly.

We went for the carvery, and there was a good choice of meat and vegetables.

Unfortunately, none of the food - meat or vegetables - could be described as 'hot'; neither were the plates. Service, ambiance and choice counts for little if the food itself is disappointing.

At no point did anyone inquire to see if we were happy with our meals; in hindsight we should have complained, though if that's the temperature at which the food is served, I don't know what they could have done.

We came for the carvery on Easter Sunday lunchtime. First of all let me say the food was fine. I would give lunch itself 3 star for the main and 4 for the desert. However this place was very busy. For the size of the bar and carvery and the level of staffing there were waaaay too many customers. We waited about 30 minutes at the bar to order drinks and pay for our carvery plates (which you do prior to eating) and then the carvery queue was so long we waited about another 45 minutes. There were 10 of us and we were sat out the back in a sort of large conservatory / shed. It had some massive industrial heaters which made our area boiling hot and despite telling staff and them coming to turn it off, within a few minutes someone else would come and turn it back on. Our long table had a support beam between me and my partner, essentially meaning the table felt very divided. It was not great for a lovely family meal all in so I won’t be returning. This place cared more about bums on seats than it did about giving customers a quality experience. Very disappointing

Love it when i travel South on a weekend down the A! as it gives me a chance to divert into The Farmers for their excellent Buffet Breakfast, that is all top quality ingredients at the great value cost of £5.95. Staff and management are always cheery and have time for a chat. I will be back again soon.
