Y Ffarmers is a pub transformed by a husband and wife team into an excellent restaurant. It retains the informality of the pub, though on a Tuesday evening in October all the tables were occupied by diners. It may seem a long drive out of Aberystwyth on narrow windy lanes but the journey is worth it. Deserving the Good Food Guide rating it delivers a good range of choice focussed on locally sourced ingredients and a sensibly priced short wine list. Service attentive and appropriately friendly. Recommended.

We had quite a trek to find this place on an early Sunday evening in September only to find it closed. Returning an hour later - still closed....
We did manage to find it open later in the week and had an excellent meal - well priced and a nice atmosphere a bit smarter than our favorite in the area so nice for a treat. Lamb pie very good with lovely little home made chips made up for the mash being off. My husband had the lamb burger - portions not huge which means there is room for a pud! Worth booking in case it is going to be closed.

This is the best place for miles. I have never had bad food there. Always get a good welcome and they always manage to make fantastic vegan food for my partner. Sunday dinners are to die for with the most delicious meat and a good selection of vegetables. I took my 5 year old grandaughter for her birthday treat and the staff went out of their way to make her feel special.

When looking for a good lunch restaurant in Aberystwyth we looked in Trip Advisor. Restaurant rated No. 1 was closed for a few weeks so we turned to No 2 - The Farmers Arms for Sunday lunch. Calling on Saturday evening for a reservation we were disappointed to hear the restaurant was near fully booked and there were no tables available for 5 guests. Looking at alternatives it became increasingly clear that other options were not nearly as appealing as The Farmers Arms. A return phone call to the restaurant pleading for availability did the trick.

We were certainly not disappointed - an excellent restaurant, very pleasant environment, good food and pleasant staff. Give this restaurant a try and you will not be disappointed.

The Ffarmers in Llanfihangel is a pub I have been to a good few times now and every time we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food is consistently excellent and the service faultless, extremely good and very friendly. They are so child friendly, with a box of toys and books as well and their summer offer of kids eating free at certain times is brilliant. The decor is lovely, making it a truly welcoming and unique looking place. I simply can't fault the Farmers and will continue to visit regularly.
