We actually went there a few times for dinner and drinks. Just lovely. Staff can be a wee bit snooty, so they should watch that!

A bit of a wait even though we had reservations and a because they are into craft cocktails they were limited in regular cocktails. Had to wait quite a bit for our drinks as a result. Food though was delicious.

Based on reviews and a friend’s recommendation, we celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday at Wm Farmer & Son. It was a perfect setting. Fabulous menu, terrific atmosphere and friendly service. Recommend restaurant for special occasions or just a casual get together with friends.
