user reviews of the Farmhouse, Coventry

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This establishment ceased to sell alcoholic drinks earlier in 2019. Not too sure of the reasons why, possibly religion, but no alcohol is allowed on the premises. You can't even take your own drinks for your meal.

The Farmhouse is more of a restaurant these days. It is a large place that serves Indian food, alongside Sunday roasts. There were actually two Greene King Ales - IPA & Abbot. But drinks were quite expensive. I have to say that the Indian food smelt really nice. But this is not really a place you'd want to come regularly just for a drink. There is a large car park and a children's play area outside.

We went to this pub at Christmas, it wasn't really busy, but we must have sat for 15 mins waiting to be served, we'd already got our drinks on the way in, so sat there like plebs, all my attempts to attract some service seemed to go unnoticed, hungry people get agitated, just about to finish drink, someone came to take our order, I had English, my husband had the Indian option, INDIAN was definitely better, English was rubbish, not being boozers, we were only there for the food, so quite disappointing, I would return when in the area, for Indian Only, service was very poor.

This place has been taken over in the last couple of years and I would definitely recommend a visit now. Food and drink are pretty good but above all you'll get a friendly welcome.

Went there recently after over a year's absence. Gone is the Hardy and Hanson Mild hence gone is any reason to go there. A "nothing" pub. (That is if you can still call it a pub)

Not really a pub, more of a house masquerading as one. If you are passing by, keep walking; you'll thank me for it

Coming in here has been a waste of time since the dawn of time itself! This hole was born in the belly of a collapsing White Dwarf star which itself had engulfed a galaxy known as 'Shit Pint', where the people of that galaxy specialised in shit pints of beer. It got caught in the space time vortex and was pulled through onto this little corner of Coventry by a gypsy magician during one of the fairs held on Hearsall Common. And now you know the truth.

This was the first pub visited on a recent crawl, and I wandered up and down looking at the pump clips, saw a Greene King IPA only on offer and walked out. I did not want to start my crawl with that one in a Hardy and Hansons pub. All the while I was there, the staff showed no inclination to serve me either.

Tried to give it a reprieve the other day and found out that it now comes under the control of the Greene King emporium (they bought Hardy's and Hanson's) and has their awful IPA on hand-pull. This was the only real ale available. Needless to say I walked out and went elsewhere.

Hmmm - a bit hit and miss. I've been here several times for food and have been disappointed with the ammount you get for your money, it really isn't good value for money. It can also be hit and miss as to whether you'll get food or not despite their advertised 'food served until 10p.m' - I've been here at 8.30p.m and been told the kitchen is now closed. Their real ale's on the other hand are usually of good quality but it is very rare you'll find all three handpumps actually alive with ale. Disappointing.

RECENTLY REFURBISHED AND MUCH BRIGHTER.EXCELLENT FOOD, VERY TASTY AT SENSIBLE PRICES.FRIENDLY STAFF AND A FAST SERVICE. I GO THERE AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK WITH MY ELDERLY FATHER,AT LUNCHTIMES. SHORTS ARE ALWAYS ( IT SEEMS ) ON OFFER AND CASK ALE IS A DREAM.

Food Ok but service was very slow.
Visited last month on a Sunday lunch time. We'd reserved a table for 12.30 but didn't eat until 1.30. Also the bitter was off on that occasion

When I was last there a few months ago the beer was disappointing and soon after 10pm the staff were putting chairs on tables and wiping our table with disinfectant. Not very welcoming at all and I haven't been back. Despite living within a few hundred yards I walk past and go to one of the excellent pubs in Earlsdon or Chapelfields.

I felt that some members of management were not very approachable.Location was good but food was bland and took too long to wait for.

Great pint of beer and staff are always helpful - lovely beer garden when the weather picks up

A large spacious pub in a leafy rural part of Coventry, serving two well-kept Hardys & Hanson's beers (Bitter + changing seasonal beer).

Good value food. Friendly welcoming staff will make your visit a pleasant one. Families catered for until 9PM daily. The pub may be a little off the beaten track, but it is the only H&H outlet in Coventry.

**NOTE**

The usually well-informed CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2004 wrongly lists this pub as being in Earlsdon Avenue. The pub is actually at the bottom of BEECHWOOD AVENUE so don't get lost finding it!
