Dinner for 2 at The Farm?

COMPETITION OVER -- winner is Brebilboa -- Congrats

I have DINNER FOR 2 to giveaway for The Farm (Dawson St, Dublin 2) worth €100!

Pigsback were doing a great deal on vouchers so I nabbed up 2 for you guys. I realised that we didn’t have any reviews yet for The Farm(bad form people) so what a great opportunity to send some of you along to try it out.
What really got me interested is the savage menu they have -- it really does sound seriously good -- check it out(you will want to go) - the farm menu.

So all you have to do to nab this for yourself is to be the person to write the most reviews in the next week!

I’ll even make it more interesting and allow people to work in pairs as it is for 2 people! Read more
