Visited the establishment that is central to Abergavenny, on Market Street! Thoroughly enjoyed the visit! Enjoyed the fish menu, and a wide selection of specials on the boards. Suggest you try the beer "Blue Moon" together with locally brewed real ales.

Called in to The Farmers Arms in Abergavenny for Sunday lunch after hearing an advert for them on the local radio. We were told there would be a little bit of a wait as they were busy. There were quite a few empty tables, so we ordered a beef roast, took our drinks and sat down. Nearly an hour later,... More

We stayed a night on our travels through Wales. Management very accommodating, and the chef prepared a meal that was fantastic ...extended the menu meal! Thanks! Pub atmosphere great, and the en suite room very comfortable. Key to the back door appreciated for an early start! The only draw back was no close parking available (with big suitcases)...but management porter-ed... More

Had a great night here. Good food which was very rich but tasty and a band on as well. Got pretty busy. Good atmosphere as well. Would recommend for a night out. On one of the side streets in Abergavenny but easy to find

Having been completely redecorated in recent years, the Farmers is one of the smartest pubs in Abergavenny with a wide selection of food and drink. Well fitted throughout. Often has live music. Lovely pub.

Had an excellent evening meal. They specialise in steak but other dishes are available and the chips were fantastic! Wine list is yet to be finalised but only apparently as a result of them being let down by local wine merchant. Good local beer on tap.
