Although its called the Farmers Inn, it is doubtful if shit covered wellingtons would be very welcome here. It all very chic, low settees with big cushions, that sort of thing (getting a bit old hat nowadays)
As alluded to before the owners of this pub really dont have much of a clue, with the many bar staff giving a running commentry on their inability to do their jobs which isnt very reassuring. The choice of ales consisted of the ubiquitous Tribute together with Proper Job. Also had pumps badged as selling Otter and Butcombe, but these not available. The Proper job wasnt worth drinking and I couldnt be bothered with the Tribute. Its not cheap either.
Mainly a food pub I guess, but if they cant get the simple things right, I doubt if the food would be much good.
Not worth going to, if you are in the area, better off going to the Greyhound or Nags Head.

Needless to say that since the previous posting this pub went out of business (in Feb 2011). A pity really as its a nice building in pleasant surroundings. The latest news is that it is re opening and reverting to its former name "the Farmers Arms". The bad news is that the new owners havent any experience whatsoever in running a pub or restaurant. To disguise this shortcoming they have appointed a "Marketting and publicity officer" OMG LOL.
Could be interesting to visit for a laugh, but I think I'll wait and see before spending my money there, after all, I would think twice about visiting a dentinst who had no previous experience of dentistry; wouldn't you?

Tiniest portions I have ever seen. So overpriced I cant believe it. Twice now we have been disappointed. Last July Friday evening dinner the service was so slow it was unbelievable. This July Saturday lunchtime was not at all busy and nothing has changed since last July.

Not a bad pub at all, good atmosphere & reasonable food and service.
The beer isn't as good as it could be, but not a bad pub all things considered.

Good country pub in the middle of nowhere but well worth seeking out - friendly staff, OK beers and good food.
