I will start by saying that i very rarely write reviews but having read the reviews of this tea room I felt the need to give my opinion . The place was very busy and therefore I presume many people do like this place. Also the cakes and scones on display looked very inviting. We only wanted a 'Cream Tea... More

Met a friend for a coffee and toasted tea cake, was pleasant although a little chilly on a December morning. Was getting very busy for lunch when we left and the menus looked very appetising. Will definitely visit again

This is my choice of venue for weekend breakfast. Quality, quantity, cost, service and venue, all come out tops. This is the only review which I've rated as "excellent". It really is worth the journey to take breakfast here.

I have visited Glebe Farm on numerous occasions and always receive a lovely service. Food is always delicious, particularly the scones and cakes. I find the ambience nice and relaxing, which is aided by the field view. I make sure I visit everytime I travel to northamptonshire and would definitely recommend.

Had Sunday roast, the smaller portion, there was plenty of food on the plate and was glad I didn't have the normal portion. The beef was melt in the mouth and everything was piping hot. The service was second to none. The waitresses were smiley and very nice. I will certainly be going again!!

Slightly steep for a roast but the meat was excellent - accommodated my pink preference for the beef. Sides were ordinary and lacked flavour. Gravy was a packet mix and mashed swede although palatable is rather 'school dinners'! Would have preferred glazed carrots and broccoli and definitely wanted more parsnips and a slightly bigger token sausage garnish. The super-sized yorkies... More

Have been here several times for Sunday lunch but have not reviewed. As I visited again on 20 November with four friends I thought I should take the opportunity, especially as nothing here every really changes. The place was busy as it always is on Sunday. The servers are always friendly and up-beat although perhaps not the most efficient or... More

We are in England for work a lot and love to try out as many different farm shops as we can on our travels. We took a long detour to come and try this farm shop/have a relaxing breakfast after a long night of travelling. When we arrived we decided to enjoy the scenery for a moment before going inside...

Had a lovely breakfast overlooking the lovely countryside. Everything was very tasty and freshly cooked very well, if I could change one thing I'd like thicker toast but that's being mega picky. Well worth a trip.

We like a refined tea and cake here and there and heard good reviews of this tea room. After a rare morning without the offspring we decided to enjoy a grown up lunch. First impressions were positive: appealing decor, well spaced tables and well-presented staff. In summary however, the menu is simply overpriced. A jacket potato with beans for £6.10... More
