An amazing place, easy going and relaxed. The extensive menu offers something for everyone even the pickiest eaters will be happy. All the staff couldn't have been more friendly, especially the bartender peter he made us all feel like we were getting a VIP service. Highly recommend it. We will defiantly be coming back soon!!!

This was my 1st time back since it was McCarthy and the it's lovely and relaxed inside. It was busy and they weren't trying to get rid of us which happens in a lot of places. The staff were lovely, our waiter Neilly was very accommodating! A very basic thing but I loved how they bring over water without having... More

This is our local restaurant and I really want it to be good and do well, but was very disappointed on this occasion. Sunday 5 February. I ordered the duck and cashew stir fry. There were no cashew nuts and it was more like a stew of onions and peppers than a stir fry. Very poor. My daughter had the... More

Had a family meal in the model farm earlier this evening & as per usual everything was without fault, friendly staff, prompt service, good portion sizes and attention to detail were all fantastic.

Been a regular customer for some time. Lunch with family today a poisonous disaster. Garlic potatoes were tainted, gone off or seriously out of date. Sent all our food back as we all were practically gagging. To be met with "no one else complained all day". We ordered sandwiches to be safe. Staff attitude very off putting and aggressive; we...

Our evening meal, on a Thursday, at The Model Farm, was enjoyable and satisfactory. Only four or five tables were occupied, and so, the atmosphere wasn't the best. There was a good selection and variety on the menu and the service was excellent. My main course was the Cajun Turkey with Ciabatta and I found it unattractive and too filling.... More

Two of us had cooked breakfast here. They do lunches and evening meals as well so that will be part of another review. We couldn't fault this restaurant / bar. It is very clean, modern, stylishly furnished and gave us two excellent breakfasts from a very pleasant well balanced menu. The staff are first class in terms of friendliness and... More

I've eaten here many times and the service is always faultless. Staff cannot do enough to help you and are always cheerful and friendly. Food is usually great - fresh, tasty and great value. Occasionally, however, things can go awry. On Christmas Eve, I was one of a party of five who had lunch here. I ordered the grilled brill... More

We booked the function room for 50+ people for our daughters christening on 28th December. Lovely cozy room, great service, really good meal, very efficient and very reasonable price. Would really recommend it.
