Farriers was always my favourite go to place to dine. But after last night's experience that may take abit of coaxing to make me feel comfortable & respected at coming back. The young girl who felt she had some form of authority had no mannerism...in talking to us. She talked at us like we were children. She doesn't know who I am or anything about me, I could be her bosses wife for all she knows. Some coaching would be helpful on building relationships with her Customers, this would help retain your Customers. The rest of the Team were happy & talkative when we engaged in conversation.More

Great meal out. We rang and booked a table. The kids fish and chips was huge and the adults chicken burger was mammoth. Good meals, solid service.

Karl (husband), Pam (friend) and I had a week-night meal out at Farriers tonight. It was a cold, bleak night out and on entry to the restaurant we were transported to a warm and cosy, but modern, atmosphere. The meals were excellent, two of us...had the marinated mediterranean lamb shoulder which we both really enjoyed and husband had the steak which, he said, was the best steak he had tasted for some time. Cam, our waitress, was attentive, friendly and efficient. A very enjoyable night out.More

The Farrier used to be a good spot for dining out. We had not been there for some time, so were quite surprised by the new menu which seemed a great deal shorter than we remembered. Gone were some of my favourites, and my wife...noted that most of the 'interesting' pizzas were missing too. It was hard to find anything we wanted to order, aside from standards like fish & chips, and the Big Kiwi Burger. But how often can you eat the same dishes? I have the sneaking suspicion that the menu was changed to make room for vegetarian and vegan dishes. If that is the case, in my view you have dome your old steady customers a great disservice. Do us a favour guys - find some menus from 5 or 10 years ago, and dust them off. Add the vegetarian stuff if you must, but don't do it on my account.More

The food was good without being exceptional, the service was good. There is heaps of parking out the front a bonus as well as a good outdoor area. Would be happy to go back.

30 noisy people as a group seemed no problem for the staff. All the food that I saw looked tasty (the seafood chowder was really good). We waited a little while but the restaurant was very busy in addition to our group. The young ladies...serving our tables did an awesome job.More

We had tried to get into Farriers the previous week but it was complete booked out. Went this week with our two young grandsons and we all enjoyed our meals. The seafood chowder was really nice (husband) and the fish and chips were very fresh,...just a big too big for me, and I am pleased to see they have cut down on the large pile of chips that used to accompany this meal. Also enjoyed the mixed, mainy spinach, salad rather than their usual mesculin salad. The two boys enjoyed their meals and desserts which were good value for money. The main reason for this review is to praise the waitress, Jojo, who was exceptional. Answered our questions and was very attentive to the boys, explaining the meals carefully. She had a smile on her face the whole time and we felt very welcomed.More

Went with the family for dinner, we all had steak. I ordered mine rare and it was raw and cold, literally inedible with gross cold cauliflower and cold chips, total waste of money
