SquareMeal Review of
The Farm House
Part of The Boat House group, this cosy restaurant and bar occupies a lovely old farmhouse at the heart of St
John, and is just the ticket for family get-togethers and special bashes. Lunchtime deli rolls beef up a crowd-pleasing menu of salads, grills and dishes ranging from a home-cooked rack of ribs or
braised shin of beef with horseradish mash and red wine sauce to salt-and-pepper squid, seafood linguine or beer-battered haddock and chips. For afters, keep it traditional with sticky toffee
pudding or French apple tart with custard. There are special deals for senior citizens and kids, who can also take advantage of the outdoor area and ‘soft play zone’ (aka the Cow Shed) – a
favourite for birthday parties. The Farm House is linked to L’Auberge du Nord – a proper old boozer for the traditionalists.
