Restaurant of the Year: Farmers Gastropub

British-inspired Farmers Gastropub has gone far beyond traditional pub fare under the watchful eye of chef-owner Andy Hampshire. Since original owner Bill Griffiths handed over the reins to Hampshire, the gastropub’s menu has flourished: Food is largely locally sourced and changes with the seasons, including dishes like ham-hock ramen and pan-seared Icelandic cod that complement classic pub fare like Scotch eggs. Hampshire also serves one of Springfield’s most indulgent brunches, with entrées like buttermilk-fried chicken livers and a full English breakfast. Although the menu has evolved significantly in recent years, Hampshire hasn’t forgotten his roots: Farmers Gastropub still serves the best fish and chips in town.
