Description: The Farmers Arms Daylesford offers a perfect blend of country charm...
The Farmers Arms Daylesford offers a perfect blend of country charm combined with a sophisticated menu, extensive wine list and professional service. Our clientele is a great mix of locals and visitors who mingle very well and very happily together. While it is a more relaxed style of service, with people coming to the bar to order food & drinks, the menu itself is not your typical pub menu. Each dish has been carefully considered by our Executive Chef and our menu changes regularly depending on the season and the local produce available. That said, the pub also has the tradition of a Friday night meat raffle where we raise money for local charities. So please come along and enjoy the magic that is the Farmers Arms. Please note our kitchen is open for lunch from 12-3pm and dinner orders from 5:30-9pm.

Really enjoyed the meal here at this warm, friendly pub. Lots of choices on the menu and particularly enjoyed their beautifully cooked steak and the very interesting watermelon chicken salad. Desserts were great too, especially the lemon trio. Highly recommend. Will definitely be back!

Visited Daylesford for the weekend and had dinner in this adorable local gastro pub. The menu was interesting with the unusual offering of Asian inspired food and we ended up getting quite a few dishes that all impressed. The salads were fresh and packed with flavor, but the highlight had to be the eye fillet that was perfectly cooked and... More

We visited this time last year and we had to return because the food is good and the place is welcoming. Staff are always busy and the kitchen closes promptly so make sure you get there early to avoid disappointment. there is a large choice of different foods and they offer a wide range of local wines. Good atmosphere

We went here over the weekend. Ordered a kids fish and chips dish and it came out almost instantly which was fantastic as the little one can never wait that long. Have to say I've eaten a lot of fish and chips and this one had the best batter I've ever had! The filet mignon with the potato mash and... More

We visited twice for dinner and were early enough to get a table without any hassles...as the Farmers Arms is certainly well patronised. However, on both ocassions we felt the food was a bit average for the price. The atmosphere is good and the staff friendly.
