Review byZoe Hardie17/06/2009
A family and animal-friendly pub tucked away behind St Werburgh’s farm.

The Venue
Although this pub is fairly central, you could be forgiven for thinking it was in the heart of the countryside. Most people walk through windy allotment lanes to reach it and once you get there you can enjoy a soundtrack of bleats and oinks from four-legged friends on the nearby city farm.

Animals really are a feature here as there's a colossal mural of them covering the outside of the pub. Inside, The Farm is quite small and unremarkable, but the point with this place is the massive front garden. It has plenty of picnic tables dotted about and there's room for a large number of people.

The People
Most of the crowd who come here are those fairly alternative ravers-turned-parents who are characteristic of nearby Montpelier and Bishopston.

Expect lots of children crawling around on the grass - with just as many dogs looking at them curiously - while the adults lounge about in the sunshine with a pint of bitter. This is a Bristol Eden if ever there was one.

The Food
The day-to-day menu is unremarkable, offering decent burgers and sandwiches and a few more snazzy dishes such as a falafel platter. The nosh that marks this pub out from the crowd has to be its outstanding Sunday roasts which all come at the set price of £7.95.

Choose from a wide variety of mains, including beef, lamb, chicken and pork, which come with a varied assortment of veg, such as mashed swede, perfect roast potatoes and flavoursome peppery cabbage, plus a whopping, gravy-filled Yorkshire pudding. Vegetarians can opt for the nut-roast: a gooey, rich, tomato-based delight, or the Cajun nut-roast for a bit of a kick.

The Drink
The Farm is a great real-ale pub. Some of the ales on offer include Doombar (£2.90), Gem (£2.80) and a guest ale (£3). Cider fiends can opt for a Stowford Press on tap (£3.05), which has a suitably farmy aroma or there's Thatcher’s Gold, also on tap (£3.15).

San Miguel and Red Stripe are £3.40 a pint but there is also a choice of bottled beer. A mixer of vodka and coke will set you back £2.55 and you can get all your soft drinks, tea, and filter coffee as you would expect.

The Last Word
This is a fabulous family hangout with a grungy vibe which offers the joy of seclusion from the rest of the city.
