About The Farmers Arms

A recently renovated historic village pub in the heart of North Devon, we offer both a pub and restaurant menu. The restaurant, under the direction of Chef Ian Webber, is a modern take on British flavors. Ingredients are sourced locally, foraged seasonally and carefully prepared with a focus on bringing out the best in each.

Our restaurant menu is served in two of our beautiful dining rooms, or we have a private room for parties of up to 10 people. We have a thoughtfully selected wine list, seasonal cocktails and local beers and ales.

The pub offers a traditional menu of fish and chips, cottage pies, sandwiches and more. This menu is available at our cozy bar tables, in the traditional pub.

Sunday lunch is a three course, sharing meal. Starting with soup and snacks, followed by two meats, vegetables, all the fixings and desserts. It is a wonderful way to spend the day with friends and family.

Please contact the restaurant directly for reservations for parties of 6 or more, or to book a table in the pub.

Excellent meal from start to finish. Service, quality of food and ambience are unlike anything in the area. Can’t wait to visit for a Roast or try the pub menu :-)

Initially we sat outside before it started to rain. When we sat at the table the ashtray was overflowing with rainwater and contained many cigarette butts - not a pretty site! These should be cleared daily. Otherwise everything else was first class. Thank you.

Heard great things about this place from family and friends, finally got around to going this week and I can safely say the food was banging!!!! Interesting flavour combos, surprises on the plate, individual components were delicious and when all scooped up into one mouthful they were singing a soulful tune. I would definitely go back and definitely recommend!!

We own Downe Cottages on The Hartland Peninsula and the quality of the nearby restaurants and pubs is very important to us. We dine out frequently at nearby pubs and restaurants so that we can always provide current feedback to our visitors. We are delighted with both the pub and restaurant at The Farmers Arms, we are confident that the restaurant will shortly make it into The Good Food Guide. With reference to the Sunday Lunch in the pub which was the reason for our most recent visit we think the meal was excellent but, by way of constructive feed back, we would welcome a two course option because we find the three course meal simply too much food to eat and Jeremy would prefer just one meat rather than the combination of two meats in the dish. The starters were very imaginative, the deserts delightful and the vegetables for the main course particularly delicious. Many thanks. Jeremy and Lynda

Absolutely superb as always. Our Australian guests ( one a skilled chef) were full of praise and the rest of our party of six are Farmers Arms groupies anyway. Thank you for looking after us so well, Harry, Lindsay, Duncan and Felicity...what a brilliant team! We will be back as soon as we can.

A wonderful meal in a stunning newly renovated pub. The attention to detail was amazing, with no expense spared on the decor and furnishings. Highly recommended, and nowhere else like it around locally, a very special experience.
