The Farm Pub

The Farm Pub epitomises everything that is St Werburghs. Set in a secluded cul de sac next to the City Farm and within spitting distance of the Eco Village, this pub is famed for its relaxed atmosphere and long lazy afternoons drinking up the sun in the pub garden. If you don’t like dogs, children and smoking this may not be the pub garden for you.

The building itself is unremarkable, however its décor is anything but. A massive rural mural adorns the outside wall, the cows tongue is difficult to miss, and the insides host an eclectic collection of local art and regularly changing exhibitions.

The garden is largely turfed with round pub bench / tables dotted about (if you want one of these in the summer you’d best get there early) and there is a large covered patio area with additional seating with old sheds that have been converted into grotto style seating areas should you want to hide away a bit. Inside there is more seating and a few sofas and armchairs to relax in by the fire.

The roast is good but not spectacular. It is a great sized portion and it is well cooked, however it is a bit mass produced for my liking. That said it’s great value and often you’ll be served within a few minutes of ordering.

If you are looking for haute cuisine then you’ll be disappointed, however if you want a good feed and to soak up what is truly some of Bristol’s best atmosphere, then this is a ‘must visit’ pub.

    The two previous times I had tried to get a roast at The Farm, they had ran out of food, or ran out of meat at least. Third time lucky though. However, service at the bar was slow, albeit polite, and there were a wide range of meat options, including pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Problem is, my mate had decided to guard the table whilst I ordered mine, then he went to order his but they’d run out of food altogether so stopped serving. He was happy enough to sit and watch me eat my roast.

    Nice enough bit of lamb, ditto the potatoes, but you feel that there’s really not all that much love gone into it. There was gravy and I was able to ask for mint sauce, which helped a lot, but it was severely lacking in complexity of flavours I’ve had elsewhere in Bristol, namely the Lazy Dog up the road.
