Local Farm-Fresh Gastropub
Here at the Whistling Farmer Pub at Woodlynn Hills Golf Course we offer farm-fresh cuisine sourced by local New York farmers, breweries, cideries, and wineries. Minutes from Letchworth State Park, we create classic American favorites with one-of-a-kind twists in true gastropub fashion. The menu and dining experience is the brain-child of Farm to Table LLC, a partnership of three locals with a passion for sourcing their restaurant’s offerings from the rich agricultural tradition of our area. Meat sourced from a farm down the road, local produce, beverages, and cheeses in addition to options for vegans and vegetarians take center stage.
Knapp Farms of Dansville, NY and Gelser's Farm of Dalton, NY serve as some of the suppliers for signature dishes like braised short-rib, smash burgers, and steaks with a la carte toppings. Fresh, local produce inspires our ever changing menu to reflect the flavors of the season. Hand-cut french fries from locally grown potatoes, salads filled with microgreens and vegetables selected from neighboring farms are just a few examples of our commitment to offering guests a true farm to table dining experience.
Our chefs & team here at the Whistling Farmer Pub bring an accessible menu with vibrant, culinary twists to traditional pub fare. From soups, sauces, salad dressings, delicious desserts, and so much more made in-house by our talented culinary team, we are dedicated to serving our guests cuisine that is truly made from scratch! It will be our pleasure to host you on your next visit.
As a farm-to-table restaurant, we are honored to serve locally sourced cuisine in a location that operated as a working dairy farm until the early 1970s. We've come a long way from milking cows and pitching hay in our dining room! Our restaurant's name is in memory of Freeman Barber, remembered by friends and loved ones as "the whistling farmer." Freeman is responsible for building Barberlea (later Triple Creek) golf course in Nunda and further inspiring his son, Russell Barber, to build his own golf course (Woodlynn Hills), on the grounds of the family dairy farm. Freeman loved this land, the views, and the community surrounding his home, farm, and golf courses. Right until the week of his passing, Freeman was on his tractor, whistling his favorite tune, and greeting guests with a warm smile and a big "hello"! It is our wish to carry on that tradition of hospitality- see you at the pub!
