    Something New and Great In Duncan.

    Visited for the first time last night with friends, and what a treat! The staff are awesome, and treat you like family. They know repeat customers by name, and if you're new, they make a point to have a conversation with you to get to know you, and give you sincere thanks for coming out to see them. Kudos to the servers as well, for helping out a table close to us, and taking their baby for walks around the restaurant so the guests could have a few moments to eat.

    The food was superb and didn't disappoint. From homemade pickles, to a perfectly cooked roast, with all the right bits in-between (I could live off those bite sized yorkies and gravy).

    I look forward to coming back and trying different meals in the future. We needed more variation of restaurants in town, and this one is worth the short drive out to visit.

    A Foodies Dream.

    Spent two relaxing nights at the Farm Table Inn with my family from out of town.

    Absolutely fabulous service and the meals were beyond delicious. All ingredients are locally sources as much as possible.

    I would highly recommend the Farm Table Inn to anyone wanting to spoil themselves or their loved ones.
