About The Farmers Arms

We are a beautiful restored country pub full of character and atmosphere. The pub is split into 2 areas, we have a casual area around the bar which has real local rustic charm. This is served by our Fish and Chip shop which has a lovely selection homemade warm sandwiches along side the fish and chip staples. Call us to reserve a table in the pub.
The other area is an informal restaurant, which is perfect for more of a restaurant experience but with a country pub atmosphere. Here the menu is constantly changing depending on whats in season.

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Farmers Arms - a lovely atmosphere. Great team. We enjoyed the interesting and adventurous food. I found one or two of the dishes a tiny bit heavy on the salt but enjoyed the creativity and interesting presentation and flavours. Very interesting - we will be back.

We just can't fault this lovely pub and restaurant. Now a regular haunt, the food continues to be wonderful - as does the hospitality. Everyone we've recommended to, and has visited, just adores this place. Always lovingly prepared, high quality, delicious, creative and fresh dishes. The best Sunday lunch anywhere. We feel privileged to have this as a local - the superb renovation and decoration well worth waiting for. A fabulous achievement by everyone involved. Cheers to you all.

Beautifully designed interior, lovely people and the food was gorgeous. The care with which the food was presented and served made the whole lunch a really shared experience and that is a precious part of eating together. So well done, all of you, for creating that. We'll definitely come back and I've already recommended you to friends.

Everything was just right. My beer was a bit cloudy and I am sure it would have been changed if I requested it so it can not have been too bad!

We all thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday roast, and to try different types of food. The Farmers Arms has been transformed, and we are so lucky to have it in our little village. Polite friendly staff.

Fabulous food. Thank you. Enjoyed every aspect of experience. However our food dishes were whisked away a little to quickly even though we still had food on them....

Absolutely wonderful food, a real treat . A chef who is phenomenally talented and a joy to meet . North Devon has now a real jewel of a pub and restaurant. There is no doubt people will travel far and wide to be here . Well done and thank you to the creator and his team for putting the Farmers Arms of Woolsery a must place to visit for visitors and locals alike again. Thank you .

Absolutely beautiful place. Very comfortable and lovely atmosphere. Sunday lunch was one of the best I have had in a pub. Granted the set three courses and sharing platter concept may not suit everyone, but it was both delicious, seasonal & interesting. We will most certainly be back and consider ourselves very lucky to have this so close by.

What a fantastic place to have wine and dine. Myself and family thurerly enjoyed the food and vast selection of fine wines and spirits on our visit. Which was the very first of many to come. I can't recommend the Farmer's Arms enough. The hospitality the staff gave us was wonderful and the food was simply sublime. Many thanks for such an amazing Sunday lunch. 😊

Super Sunday lunch. Great fresh and lovingly prepared delicious food. Thank you chefs, hidden away in the kitchen. The front of house staff are all really friendly, courteous and helpful. The renovation is really fabulous and there is a very warm atmosphere. Will be back very soon.

This is a restoration of the old pub and it's amazingly well done. The restaurant is a lovely space and the food is elegant and delicious. The staff are most welcoming -- all in all, a great evening and we are very lucky to have it as one of our locals. Alternatively, the pub food (separate from the restaurant) which I have sampled previously is excellent value and first rate washed down with a pint!

A lovely Sunday lunch, better than we have eaten anywhere in the area for a very long time. Food quality was first class and with the three courses very, very ample. The mushroom, parsley and garlic soup was delicious, as was the parfait pate. As well as tasty roasties, a range of truly seasonal and flavoursome vegetables, accompanying the tender beef and pork, included Swiss chard, cavolo nero, baby carrots, broccoli, roast onion, roast beetroot and amazing cauliflower cheese - the veggies were a real highlight. Pudding was a treacle sponge pudding and really great apple crumble with yummy nutty topping. We think you would have to go a long way to find food of this quality, and to have it so close to hand is marvellous. The staff are so friendly, helpful and clearly well trained; and the atmosphere of the whole pub is warm. There has been so much attention to the way the pub has been restored and fitted out with beautiful natural materials; the decor is very stylish yet understated in harmony with the building and the local area. Highly recommended, 11/10!

Limited bar menu and doesn’t feel special as what you can get in chippy. Need some healthy options. But I appreciate early days. Pub is just beautiful, great staff, look forward to coming back lots and lots. And will sample restaurant soon too. A great addition to the area
