This pub was built in 1926 so it misses the charm of an Olde Worlde c17th/c18th village pub and the 'pizzazz' of a modern one. Its high ceilings and an air of dark dinginess pervades its atmosphere which seems to beg not merely a Spring...More

Thank you for your comments. We are working on updating the decor but, as we are a tenancy, it takes time (as it costs us a lot of money). We have updated the toilets and the TV room and spent a lot of money on...More

Our local pub shut for refurbishment so we got a taxi to the farmer inn. We didn't eat but the menu and the food looked amazing! Loved the look of the pub was just perfect! It got really busy in the evening - popular place!

Fantastic roast dinner, huge portions and good value for money! The puddings are also huge and very nice, we had apple crumble and custard and my parents had cheesecake, both of which were lovely. Also a very nice setting.
