Farmers Arms Daylesford

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. We don’t take bookings and ask that you simply come in, grab yourself a seat and order food & drinks at the bar. If, on your arrival, you are looking for a table to become free, we’ll organise this for you and let you know as soon as one becomes available.

Judges’ Comments

The Farmer’s Arms Hotel Daylesford is a warm and inviting pub with a sensational menu. On a cold winter night it is lovely to walk in and soak up the ambience. The chalkboard menu is quite extensive and has many interesting dishes to choose from. The food is of a very high standard, consisting of fantastic flavours and presentation. The serves are generous, and the quality is excellent. Add a nice bottle of wine, and you are in for a very pleasurable evening.  Looking at the menu you realise that this is no ordinary pub, that the chef has a repertoire of dishes that is expansive and well researched, and there is an amazing combination of Asian, Middle Eastern, Spanish, French dishes, and more. The food is full of authentic flavours and textures, cleverly put together and delicious. If you are a foodie, this is the place to come. The Farmers Arms also offers a serious wine list with good selections from Victoria and overseas, including some really high end drops. So if you are in the mood for a bottle of Grange just ask the barman!  The Farmers Arms is good value for money with a huge variety of choices, delicious foods with large serving sizes, sophistication in the foods and wines, knowledgeable staff, beautiful presentation and really good cooking.
