Blackthorn _ left this review about The Farmer's Union

Located on the outskirts of the town centre and not far from the central railway station, this large pub seems to have a slight identity crisis. On one hand it has something of a hotel lounge type feel to it, whilst on the other it is perhaps more of a sport bar.

It’s predominantly all one room, although segregated off in to a couple of different areas. Flooring is a mixture of carpet and laminate whilst the paintwork is either cream or khaki green. A pool table was off tone one side, and behind this was what appeared to be a carvery counter, although this was not in use when we visited. A free standing chimney breast housed a wood burning stove, and behind this was a small snug area with suede bench seating, a book shelf and a pile of logs. A plasma was above the fire-place, but this was not in use.

The menu looked to be of the mass produced, laminated type and was divided in to a number of sections such as burgers, salads, fish and old favourites. The latter consisted of pub grub staples such as Ham EGG & Chips, Chilli Con Carne, Beef & Ale Pie, Chicken Tikka Masala, etc., and these were mostly priced somewhere around £8.

Despite four pumps on the bar, these were both doubled up so the only choices were Doom Bar or Otter Amber. The solitary cider was Thatcher’s Gold.
