SINCE moving to the area I have not had the chance to explore the local cuisine in Ulverston so I was keen to get out and see what the town has to offer.

My parents came to visit me for the day so I took them to a town favourite.

A quick look on Tripadvisor and the Farmers came up with 4.5 star rating out of 583 reviews.

I have been to the Farmers before, several years ago mind, but the place has had a makeover inside and it is safe to say, it was very easy on the eyes.

It was a quiet midweek afternoon so there was no bother in getting a table and ready to order food.

The young waiters were very polite and took our orders swiftly. It was a relaxing, warm environment to be in and all the locals inside seemed to be enjoying themselves.

We ordered three coffees and our meals. I chose to have the Farmers burger, a handmade steak burger with cheese, bacon, salad leaves, onion rings, tomato and hand cut chips.

My mum opted for chicken brie and cranberry baguette while my dad, being the type he is, picked the Irving’s stack, which was gammon, sausage, egg, Portobello mushroom and chips.

The wait for the food was around 15 minutes, which was not bad at all.

I don’t really know what I was expecting when I chose my burger, but I didn’t realise I had just ordered a mountain on my plate.

The waiter put the food down on our table and I had to tackle this enormous, high-stacked burger, which looked incredible.

The meat was extremely thick and looked to be well-cooked.

The presentation of all our meals looked appealing and it was stunning to look at.

I managed to somehow pick up my mammoth burger and after one mouthful I knew we made a good decision coming to the Farmers.

The burger was full of taste and it was a sheer joy from start to finish.

The meat was beautifully cooked and the cheese added a succulent taste to the meal.

The salad leaves and tomato were fresh and it was certainly value for money.

My parents also made comment on how they liked their meals and the whole experience was a pleasure.

It was safe to say that I was completely stuffed for dessert, so we got our monies worth.

Complimentary water was on offer at the bar, which had small pieces of cucumber inside.

Research suggests it supports healthy skin, but the taste was not the best to say the least.

However, if I have to say the only con for the Farmers is the complimentary water, then they are doing things right.

We ordered three mains and three coffees, which came to £42. Not too bad considering my meal was exceptional and my parents thoroughly enjoyed theirs.

Overall, the Farmers was a pleasure and I am already looking forward to my return in the near future.

If anyone is looking for a quiet place for lunch in Ulverston, then the Farmers is the place to go.
