Ferriby Road, Hessle, HU13 0JA.
Home Farm is part of the Brewers Fayre chain of pub restaurants. This branch is located just off a roundabout near to the Humber Bridge. There is an outside play area for children.
From Monday to Saturday there is an evening all you can eat fixed price buffet. Each night has a different food theme, such as curry or tex-mex. On Sunday there is a day and early evening carvery instead.
The regular Main Menu is typical fare for locations such as this; pub classics, grills, fish and salads with some smaller options such as sandwiches, baguettes and jacket potatoes.
Home Farm was visited mid-afternoon on a Friday and consequently was very quiet. You first find a table, and then make your way to the bar to place and pay for your order.
The drinks ordered were bottomless soft-drinks, both Pepsi. With these, you are given a glass and you help yourself from the soft drink dispenser which also dispenses ice. Once purchased, you may get as many refills as wanted. This also applies to some of the hot drinks too. Although draught soft drinks are not that good, the unlimited refills did make them good value for money. There is no actual need to keep having the same soft drink every time you refill; you can always choose another if wanted.
Two main courses were ordered; a beef lasagne with chips, garlic bread and a side salad and a 6oz beef burger served in a sliced and toasted bun with chips and a separate container of coleslaw.
The meals took about quarter of an hour to be served. Although there wasn't much custom, this was between normal dining hours, so this was a fairly reasonable wait.
The Beef Lasagne
The beef lasagne itself was pretty substantial. It came in an oval dish which was served on the main plate which had the chips, salad and garlic bread on. The chips were properly cooked, the dressed salad was of a decent size and the garlic bread was fine.
The 6oz Beef Burger
Again, the chips were fine, neither over- nor under-cooked. The burger also had been cooked properly, and the toasted bun was fine, not burnt. The burger itself would have probably been better with one of the optional extras purchasing, but this was not a fault with the burger but rather with how it was ordered. The coleslaw came in a decent quantity and was fresh.
The two main meals came under the two for £10 deal that runs on weekdays from 12 to 6:30 PM, so the total price including the two bottomless Pepsis was £14.50. The price for two meals was therefore very reasonable, yet they were still of a decent quality. Overall, this provided a decent pub meal and a reasonable price. If visited alone, the necessity to go to the bar to place your order would be a bit inconvenient, especially if the place is busy. 3/5.
