Delicious food. Came here for a quick Friday night dinner - not your usual pub food... Much nicer. The menu changes frequently. My partner loved his 'pie of the day' while I enjoyed my Seafood Curry Laksa! it was so fresh and fragrant. I always...More

Great location mid winter, warm and cosy. Wood heater ambience. Good menu, very extensive. Possibly a bit pricey but serves are substantial.

Warm welcome on arrival and very helpful when asking about their gluten free food for a member of our party with Coeliac Disease. I had the laksa which was delicious. Would recommend to families and couples alike.More

Description
local produce, Huge wine list, 16 Beers and Ciders on tap. 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.
