“Lovely little pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

My husband & I ate here recently & found it to be warm & friendly, full of character & charm. We had a lovely meal & my husband enjoyed the locally brewed beer! We would definitely eat here again if we were in Cwmdu.

My wife and I just called in on the hop, as we were just passing coming from Hay-on - wye, what a lovely little pub, excellent home cooked food, excellent real ales, don't know what the other people are on about we had an excellent welcome from Chris and Lynn, the next time we pass through Cwmdu we will definitely call in the Farmers Arms again.

Really enjoyed our visits to this pub in August 2012. Very good food and nice homely feel about it. Good locals and nice beer. Have no hesitation recommending this pub to passers by and people staying locally (as we did).

Looks can be deceiving! The flowers outside are better tended than the customers! No one in pub, which has lovely stone flags on floor, we were allowed to take our small and well behaved dog in and she sat happily under our table. The Landlord was not there. The food was OK, not brilliant, but OK. We went back in the evening and the lunchtime staff looked nervous, the Landlord just looked at us and gestured to us to get out - no curtesy, no hospitality, in fact we could have eaten outside as it was a nice evening but his attitude was dreadful. We won't be recommending this pub!

Food and drink ok, but avoid this pub if you have a dog; you'll end up eating outside in the cold and dark. The landlord even closed the door behind us since he was getting a bit chilly inside. No wonder we were the only people there. We won't be going back!
