“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Such a varied menu there is something for everyone. The presentation is excellent and could put many a top restaurant to shame. There is quite a selection of beers and guest beers are thoughtfully provided. Be prepared to wait for your food but it is well worth the wait and when it says homemade, that is what you get. For a village pub it bats above its league.

“50th birthday loved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Ate a varied menu with both meat and vegetarian family attending.
Fried Courgette and feta with lemon goes well together. Liver divinely cooked. Chicken wings also loved by all meat eaters.
A great family night for non locals a place worth visiting we will be back thank you .

“walk into the 1970s”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Fabulous food and such good value for money. Couldn't believe the low price of the wine ! but then again, I live in Cornwall which is a tourist hot spot. Great sense of humour from the hostess and regulars when I said it reminded me of the 1970s. Very attentive and even the young barmaid was very very friendly which was welcomed as we were going to a funeral the next day. They kindly rang the B&B when we left our postcards behind. We ate at a 'trendier' place up the road the next day and wished we hadn't. Go the the Farmers Arms, you know its worth it.

“Food at the local pub.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We recently ate at The Farmer's Arms on Friday evening after a recommendation. We arrived and ordered our food but had to wait an hour and a half for it to arrive! Others eating there the same night were also waiting and passing comments about how long they too had been waiting! Eventually the food arrived and we had both chosen from the specials board. My lamb burger was rather undercooked and only just warm but I didn't complain which is what I should have done as I was I hungry and just relieved to be eating after such a long wait!

“Fab food at a great local pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely pub, great atmosphere and the food was just fab, locally source meat from a fantastic butchers nearby and the pudding we choose was stunning (vanilla panecotta with lemon foam) and very good value for money, will definitely go back.
