Found in the county of Surrey, picturesque Farnham is a relaxed and traditional market town that is popular with young families and commuters. The town is home to a variety of historic attractions, most famously Farnham Castle, which is nearly 900 years old. The castle has some competition from Waverley Abbey's ruins, which date back to the 12th century, while Bourne Wood is perfect for leisurely afternoon strolls. Farnham’s residents are also only a short drive from Guilford, where there is plenty of retail therapy to be enjoyed.
Once you have exhausted all of Farnham’s attractions, you will no doubt be in need of a good meal. Luckily for you, restaurants in Farnham offer an impressive selection of independently-run haunts, with the high street home a wealth of cutesy cafes, homely gastropubs and smart dining rooms.
If you prefer sticking to what you know, there are a few well-recognised chain restaurants in the area that provide comforting familiarity. Although you might be happy in a Bills or a Zizzi, Farnham is really all about the independent restaurants, with their welcoming atmosphere and locally sourced menus. Our advice? Skip the big names and make the most of these lesser known treasures.
