Review on The Farm

Formerly known as the Shelly Farm, this Solihull hostelry ha been given a serious contemporary revamp and now forms part of Paul Salusbury's stable of gastropub/restaurants dotted around the Midlands. The whole venue now comes in two parts – 'the inn' and 'the food'.

'The inn' is just the spot for a drink and a chat, with its laid-back Scandinavian feel, exposed brickwork and comfortable chairs; simple food is available from 12.00 – 7.00pm. For something more elaborate, try the capaciously rustic dining area with its high vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, grainy oak floor and bar constructed from rough-hewn bark and steel. There's also a funky terrace and 'beach' for those wanting to eat al fresco.

Colourful modern brasserie-style food is the order of the day, with appetisers to share (baked Camembert with baguette or Spanish rustic bread with roast garlic and scorched tomatoes, for example), pasta, steaks and BBQ skewers served with Moroccan couscous. Other options might include crispy sesame beef salad, 'slowly turned' spit-roast pork loin with apple and sage stuffing, and seared sea bass with crayfish, lemon and chips. The Farm also offers discounted 'happy drinking' and 'happy eating' from 5.30 - 6.30pm Mon-Fri.

    Lunch - 10 January

    The lunch was high quality. We were very impressed by the high standard provided by Lauren. Cheerful young lady who made every effort to provide a welcoming and effective service.
