Beautiful food and great atmosphere. You need to be there early as they don't take bookings. Huge range of food and drinks. Staff really friendly.

This was by far the best pub food I have ever had. I had a 'light' meal, and was sorry when it ended. Staff were nice and chatty as well.

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.
