We went for dinner on a Friday night. Food was delicious and the service was also very quick and friendly. Just a short walk from the middle of town (about 15029 minutes) or about 3 minutes drive. We really enjoyed it here.

A hidden gem, just out of town. Plenty of parking. Meals are on the blackboard, plenty of choice. We enjoyed the porterhouse and the beef pie. Both were excellent. Good beers on tap. Overall highly recommended

The most generous serving of pork belly I have ever had and cooked to perfection. Within easy drive of Daylesford which is a great accomodation venue.

Start with a drink at the bar. The staff are super friendly and it was lovely to see the locals enjoying each other's company. The restaurant out the back is beautifully presented for a pub. Traditional but also with a couple of long communal tables. The food was delicious and the wine list impressive.

Hi JoeyCL We're so happy to know you enjoyed the vibe that many of our locals bring to the pub. We're not sure which night you visited but every Friday night we host a meat raffle that helps raise funds for local organisations and that is definitely the best time to side up to a local and find out more...

Another recommendation from one of the locals and now we know why. Food selection was great. We decided to have the pork belly. It was excellent and we loved the atmosphere is the hotel. Great for everyone. Staff were very friendly and I would now recommend it to you.

We stayed out of Daylesford on Friday, 11 November with another couple and looked for a place for dinner about 8:00 pm. They don't take bookings, but despite being packed in the general bar area, we were able to grab a table straight away and the meals came out really quickly (about fifteen minutes). We had rolled pork belly and... More

Hi Clairfraser We really appreciate your detailed review so many thanks for this. The Snicker's dessert is a crowd favourite and it is definitely hard not to finish a great meal with such a tasty dessert.

Such a fun day, most people were dressed for the occasion, even the staff were dressed up, dinner suits, hats etc. And as usual the food was good, always interesting, and consistently good. A must to visit if your in Daylesford.

This is an old pub that has been updated to more of a restaurant. Nice relaxed environment and country style friendliness including the largest drink sizes so watch how many you order. We tried the sampling plate, calamari and a salad and all were yummy. Meals are large and good value. An enjoyable and relaxed meal for a fair price... More

Description
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. Gluten Free & Vegetarian options available.
