Yes the food tasted nice but to be honest bit felt like they just want your money, €50 for there spaghetti bolognese and a jug of water is way too much and even the portion is more like a snack. Sadly Ireland has become a rip off nation where before the euro it wasn't

From starters through to deserts everything was really delicious. All 8 of us were really impressed with both the food and service. Great selection of local produce and items from the bakery in the shop.

Part of the ethos of this Restaurant is that all produce, sourced locally ‘are handled simply, with a minimum of fuss and delivered with an honest simplicity’ and on our recent visit on a busy Friday night we found this indeed to be the case. We were greeted warmly & seated promptly in the smaller dining room. Away from both... More

I hadn't been to the Farmgate for dinner in a while and the Thursday before last, on a cold and dreary evening after a long day at work, I decided to treat myself!

The staff were under pressure and unhelpful. One of our party asked to have his two slices of gluten free bread toasted... More

I'm a regular customer here at the Farm Gate, both to the take away and restaurant. I love the food here. It's good wholesome food with an emphasis on flavour. I think m favourite main is the rib eye steak.....mouth watering. Also a must try is the roasted red pepper sauce. Desserts are divine and the portions are large! which... More
