Description
The Farmer's Arms Hotel in St Arnaud, Victoria, is a country pub with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and cold beer. The attached bistro, A Goat and a Chicken Bistro, serves up hearty meals at affordable prices. The Farmer's Arms has recently had a change in management, and we now welcome our new manager Pauline and new assistant manager Judy. Richard is still our wonderful chef in our bistro.
