Great ambiance, great service and lots of choices on the menu. We ordered chips and dumplings as a starter, main fish and chips, steak and the seafood marinara. Yummy!!!

Last night we had a beautiful meal for father's day, dad and myself enjoyed the pork belly, which was so generous, but the crackling was to... More

No bookings are taken for this hotel, but they do say they will find you a seat somewhere, and they do. The service was great, food even better. Can't fault this place. Make it a must go to place when in Daylesford.

We went to the Farmers Arms on the second of our two nights in Daylesford this last week-end. We changed our choice of pubs at the suggestion of a local and were very pleased we did. Having spent our main night out at a local well known restaurant we were just looking for a nice low-key pub meal but were... More

Kelvin and I ate at the Farmers Arms while on a short break in Daylesford. We arrived early and settled down with a red (Merlot) and a beer in the warm dining area.

We were here in 2013 and the food was so good and memorable especially their lamb shank, my husband had to return this year all the way from Waikerie , South Australia which is about 8 to 9 hours drive to have it again. I am not sure whether he would make another trip in 2015. It is a long... More
