Arrived here extremely hungry. The beef and Guinness casserole was so delicious and a very generous portion too. Lemon tart for dessert completed an excellent lunch. The availability of a large table for solo diners is a very good idea.

Farmgate, Midleton ranks as one of my top ten restaurants anywhere. We visited for the first time last week in a party of five. We were treated to a wonderful ambience, delicious fresh food with an incredible range of choices for all courses, live background music by a talented guitar player who took requests, and attentive, friendly staff throughout the...

Heard good reviews previously about farmgate but it definitely surpassed my expectations. Food was beautifully presented and tasted better than it looked, staff were very busy but at all times were very obliging, definitely will be returning.

My Daughter and I called in to The Farmgate Restaurant for lunch while shopping in Midleton. It was quite busy but we didn't have long to wait to get a table. We both had homemade vegetable soup and it was delicious. We had chicken salad sandwiches which were nice and fresh and tasty. The staff were nice and friendly. We... More

Amazing home cooked food served by hands on polite staff. Lovely surroundings- we sat in the back room and there was plenty to admire as we waited for our food (which wasn't long at all!). I had the carrot cake for dessert which was superb with rich creamy icing. The highlight was being able to pick up a cake on... More

We popped in here to grab a quick bite of lunch. While I appreciate it was Easter Saturday, the woman who was managing the eatery was more than officious on what we could order, which in truth I found quite disconcerting. We were given a nice table. I ordered a bowl of soup which arrived too hot with a very,... More

We visited here with our friends last week. We had a small stroller and there were 3 adults. The waitress tried to get me to 'get rid' of the buggy and carry in my car seats and basically leave the base on the street. I asked her would they cover me if the stroller was stolen. She laughed. Our babies... More

Have to say it's my favourite restaurant in Cork. The atmosphere is lovely but the food is unsurpassed . The manager/owner Sally is a touch of class . If you're thinking of dinner/lunch in East Cork don't look beyond here ! You won't be disappointed .....
