Good food and good serves.

Great ambiance, although quite pricey, the set up was Bistro like. We were to go to the bar/counter and order, a tab was started and then you pay at the end of the night. So any time you required say a dessert, you're required to leave your companion and order at the front. At those prices you'd... read more

Wandered in here on Friday evening on the recommendation of friends (apparently they don't take bookings) and were promptly given the choice of 3 available tables - we opted for the table in a room out to the side as it was a bit quieter. The pub has a terrific, friendly vibe and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate... More

As with other reviewers, the Farmers Arms was recommended to us by the host of our B&B. Wow. What a recommendation! We had possibly the best pub meal we've ever had, anywhere. I had the dukkah crumbed snapper and my fiancée the duck salad with watermelon. The servings were generously sized and so, so tasty! We were almost too full... More

Big, hearty delicious meal. Great vibe in the restaurant. I would definitely go again! It was busy so the food took a long time to come out, but it was worth the wait.

We happened in on the Farmers Arms on a Friday night on the recommendation of the host of our bed and breakfast. It was among handful he suggested as the town's more interesting places. We are so glad we chose it, because apart from the excellent food and wine list, it was a great experience. The bar and two dining... More

This place was recommended to us by Irene from Pendower House and I have to say, we are very grateful. The food was so good that when I go back to Daylesford, I will only eat there. Obvious care has been taken in not only choosing the best produce, but also in the preparation. Can't speak highly enough of our... More

I have been here several times and have NEVER been dissapointed. The meals are great value and of a very high standard. Wine by the glass or bottle also very reasonably priced. Save room for dessert!!

Nice broad menu as we were travelling with seniors. Sweet potatoe chips, tasting plate and dukah snapper, every bite was delicious.

The farmers arms is a pub but boy is it a good one! The menu has something for everyone. With the classic dishes but as far as a pub goes it's just that bit better then the norm. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Staff is lovely and the food tops it off. As far as pubs goes it's one... More
