Fat Farmer

European in Palmerston North

There's a definition of the noun 'farmer' on the wall at this restaurant and bar: 'someone who is outstanding in their field'. And while they may not take themselves seriously, dishes such as pan-fried goat's cheese and slow-roasted jerk chicken aren't mucking about. Best with Tuatara on tap. Book ahead if you want to sit in the dining room.

A few kilometres southeast of Palmy CBD and owned by the same team behind Aberdeen.
