We visited The Farmers Arms twice during our visit to The Yorkshire Dales. On both occasions the food we had was excellent and they catered well for Gluten Free customers. The staff were very friendly and polite, we would highly recommend.

Lunched here with friends on an October mid week day - impressed by how many others had the same great idea! Good welcome, fire going, good beer and plenty of wholesome choice on the menu. Just what you hoped it would be and we were...More

Heard lots of great stuff about this place, saying the food was great and very popular with walkers and campers. No need to book a table we landed about 6pm after a long walk in the Swale Dale, very hungry! The menu was just right,...More

Great food. Good beer. Importance of a smile and eye contact with your customers is not acknowledged by the landlord. Been coming here for 6 years. Unwanted sarcastic remarks are not welcomed by us and clearly not by other families. Embarrasingly so. Sadly these comments...More

We have been visiting this pub for several years in the Swaledale village of Muker. It is just a regular Dales pub which is very popular with walkers and tourists alike. The Pennine Way and the Coast to Coast walks pass close by. The food...More

Poor customer service, awful food, there are many, many better pubs in the area - avoid this place if possible. You'd be better off in a Wetherspoons. The bar staff are unfriendly and dismissive. Not the welcoming reception you expect in Yorkshire.

It certainly was. I understand though that it has just been taken over by new owners but I cannot believe they will stop allowing dogs as quite a few of their regulars take dogs in. I cannot think of a country pub that is... More
