The Farmhouse Community
We love it when you share your creations, opinions, ideas and general musings with us, it makes us feel like we’re family. A huge thanks to those of you who have contributed so far this year! They say sharing is caring and we couldn’t agree more. So far, you have reviewed our wines, submitted your best veg recipes for our eat more veg pledge, told us what makes you smile in our Happiness is... competition and shared your fantastic cake creations with us. Look out for more ways to become part of the family throughout the year...
The Feast From The North-East
As the ‘Beast From The East’ struck the UK in March, staff at the Sunderland Royal Hospital were forced to abandon their cars and sleep overnight in makeshift staff wards. Find out how Wearside Farm, armed with a special delivery of our famous Cakeaway, stepped in and helped to put a smile back on the faces of the local NHS heroes.
Whether it be the amazing food, great customer-service or friendly atmosphere, there’s something for everyone at our pubs. We asked you, our customers, to tell us what it is about Farmhouse Inns that makes you smile, and you responded in your droves with your testimonials and pictures sharing these great experiences. Here are some of the highlights of the things you had to say.
A Great Display!
We have all seen the spectacular cake displays on show at our local Farmhouse Inn, but no two cabinets are the same. The cake-a-tiers put all of their efforts and creativity into making their displays the best in the country. Here are just a few examples of the amazing cake selections you could find. And if you’re too full after your meal, don’t worry, simply take a slice (or two!) home to enjoy whenever you like with our cake-away service. After all, it really is too good to resist.
Famous at Farmhouse
It’s not just us mere mortals who enjoy the Farmhouse Inns experience. Occasionally the rich and famous also pay us a visit to tuck into our signature carvery and enjoy a slice of Cakeaway. Here we have Sky Sports’ Chris Kamara, Red Dwarf’s Craig Charles, and Olympic athlete Iwan Thomas all having a great time at their local. If it’s good enough for them, then it’s good enough for us!
Fabulous Farmhouse Cake-Off!
The Fabulous Farmhouse Cake-Off is a baking competiton where passionate amateur baking fans of all ages can compete to win a £20 gift voucher each month, courtesy of Farmhouse Inns. So don your aprons, dust off your rolling pins and let your creative juices flow! Could you be the next Farmhouse baking champion?
Wine Tasting Evening
12 guests were invited to come along to Burton-on-Trent in January for an informal tasting of all of our Farmhouse Inns wines. We had groups of 4 guests review white, red, rosé and sparkling wines. The objective was to get ratings and recommendations for each of the wines, and to help you choose the best compliment for your meal.
