We had the enormous slab of perfectly cooked pork belly and the deliciously prepare Blue eye Trevalla baked with tomatoes, olives and capers. Cannot fault a thing. The desserts were fabulous too. Apple and quince crumble was divine.

This is the place to try if ever you're in Daylesford. You walk in and at once you feel relaxed, staff are welcoming atmosphere and the patrons are mixture of locals and visitors. Friendly staff, fantastic meals and great wine list.

The Farmers Arms was recommended by two Daylesford locals so after a week of high end eating we went to the Farmers Arms on our last night in Daylesford The hostess was excellent and friendly, (no booking required) the menu was comprehensive and the wine choice good. The food was well above average pub food. I had fish and it... More

A very good pub dinning venue. A selection of entrees, small mains and larger mains on the menu. A good selection of wines and friendly service add to the pleasure of dining here.

We have had delicious meals at The Farmers Arms. On a cold, windy night you walk in to a buzzy, cheerfully welcoming atmosphere. There is a wide choice on offer in food, wines and beers and portions are generous. Service is friendly, relaxed but efficient and prompt. The food is very tasty and there is something for everyone. It's certainly... More

We visited Farmers arm upon recommendation and we left disappointed with the food. The staff were lovely, order taken promptly & the meals were out in a flash. For mid week & no special events- the place was really busy! It was like 5 degrees that night & we thought we'd be the only people who'd be brave enough to... More

We came for dinner on a Friday night.... The pub was very busy but we were greeted very quickly and offered a drink while we waited! Great atmosphere and when the food arrived it was amazing! We ended up having three courses of delicious food by the warm cozy fire on a cold night! We will be back!
