Welcome to The Farmers Arms

eat drink & be local

Since 1857, thousands of guests have walked through the doors of The Farmers Arms and through eating, drinking and laughing the night away, they have created a special magic that gives our pub its unique character. Cozy and friendly, The Farmers Arms offers the perfect blend of country charm combined with a sophisticated menu, extensive wine list and down-to-earth service.

Whilst we offer a relaxed style of service, our menu is far from typical pub food. We pride ourselves on offering a warm, friendly environment that comfortably accommodates groups of all sizes and for all occasions. The Farmers Arms is a pub with a very loyal, local clientele and an often busy bar, creating a wonderful atmosphere and lots of opportunities to find out what’s happening around town.

Here at The Farmers, we offer a casual & relaxed style of service which does not require you to make a booking, so just come when you please. If you are particularly keen on securing a table, we highly recommend you arrive as early as possible. For groups with eleven guests or more  please email us at belocal@farmersarmsdaylesford.com.au

Our kitchen opens at 5:30pm for dinner and takes last orders at 9pm, 7 days a week. If by chance, we are full when you arrive we can always accommodate you and your guests at the bar for a short wait and a drink. We have a variety of table settings and can accommodate parties from two to sixteen.

If this is your first visit, we would like to share with you that The Farmers Arms is absolutely dedicated to sourcing the best quality local produce for our ever-changing menu, which has both European and Asian influences. Our range includes snacks, light meals, generous mains and delicious desserts uniquely created by our pastry chef. Many of our dishes are gluten-free and vegetarian friendly! We also have 16 local, craft and international beers on tap as well as an extensive wine list to suit everyone’s taste.

Just come to the bar order you food and drink and we will set up a tab for you. We are also happy to split bill.

We look forward to your visit and having you “Eat, Drink & Be Local” at The Farmers.
