Annie Smithers’ Du Fermier is the Platonic ideal of the country restaurant. Slotting easily into the character-filled main street of Trentham, its amiable eccentricities include a range of covetably gorgeous gardening tools and ceramics for sale and a French farmhouse-style menu that draws its inspiration from Smithers’ huge kitchen garden at Malmsbury. An always-changing proposition, you can expect a four-course set menu and multiple side dishes served sharing-style, whether it’s warm house-smoked duck breast with bitter leaves, a wagyu shin daube with buttery mashed potatoes, kale and carrots and to finish, a fruit pie and double cream.
