After many lunches and quick bites, I fulfilled a long time ambition to have an evening dinner in this popular Midleton eatery. A group of fourteen of us all friends have been meeting at least once a year and on this occasion we had unanimous approval voiced by all that this was " the best get together we have had". Well done Farmgate.

Farmgate is a special place as you pass through their well stocked shop both entering and exiting and somehow you know that you are in for a treat. Because of our group size, we went for the limited choice set dinner option. My choice of the crab crostini and beef fillet was plate lickingly good. In fact all fourteen empty plates bore this out. Perhaps if there was one area for improvement it would be the trio of desserts which did not match the experiences we got from the first two courses.

With this latter point, some people simply ignore the desserts course so I should include myself in this category. Tea and coffee choices were included.

This dinner was marking a special occasion for us, so the €50 price per head excluding wine was acceptable.

Looking forward to finding a good reason to return as a couple.

Booked dinner for 5 friends , impressed when received call from restaurant that morning to confirm booking and confirm all details re times. On arrival at restaurant, received warm welcome , shown to a lovely table in a beautifully lit bright white room , we were off to a great start. The service , the selection of food on offer were both superb. The presentation of the mains esp my choice of plaice and the taste absolutely out of this world. Really blown over by this lovely gem hidden in Midleton- looking forward to our next visit already.

Was here for business with 8+ colleagues
Service was friendly and service well paced.
Food was good all round with only the fried soul a little greasy. Vegetables and potato were delicious as was desert.
Lovely coffee to finish.
