Really good pub meal. Lovely staff and friendly atmosphere. We were served our meals quickly and the children in our party were looked after by the friendly staff.

We had a great pub meal here on Saturday night. It was lovely and warm inside despite being freezing outside. The staff here were very friendly- a table wasn't available straight away when we arrived at 6.30pm (it was packed!!!) so we were able to put our name down for a table and wait in the bar for some drinks....

We arrived as a group of 7 right on 6pm on a Friday night and the place was already alive. It's a great atmosphere with the public bar and the restaurant both quite busy. A steady stream of diners continued to arrive throughout the evening and the staff did a great job in managing to cater to everyone's needs. The... More

Walked in the door on friday night to a packed pub of locals and tourists with an incredible atmosphere. No pretense just excellent food (better than many expensive restaurants), really good wines and incredibly friendly service. Love that they have not driven the locals away as the raffle in the front bar with cheers and banter was the highlight of... More

We were greeted by a lovely fellow and lucky there was a table available for us. The blackboard menu was extensive & although... More

I visited The Farmers Arms hotel in Kyneton with two girlfriends on a cold, rainy evening. It was a warm, cosy respite from the cold but more importantly it offered a great menu. Our three dishes were served swiftly and were enjoyed by us all. There is a great wine selection as well. Well worst a visit. It is also... More

Despite not having a booking we were made to feel very welcome in the cosy bar area. Our table was soon ready and the service was very prompt and friendly. Food was very well presented and taste great. Amazed at the level of efficiency considering the number of people dining on that night. Loved it!
