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.

Thank you for a lovely meal which we thoroughly enjoyed on Sunday. There is one comment to make which you may wish to take on board. We were sat on the table over the well and although nicely placed by the fire we did find the lack of light in that corner made it difficult to see what we were eating.This is a small point but it did detract from a lovely meal. I hope you find this criticism constructive and we will certainly be returning. Many thanks Robert Cole

Beautiful surroundings, lovely friendly atmosphere. Really tasty food cooked to perfection, not a big menu but still a good variety of dishes to chose from. Some very tasty real ales mostly local. Attentive friendly staff. Think we had the best table in the house, the circular table in the bar with lovely comfy armchairs. Our 3rd visit for a meal and we will be back again soon.

Lovely roast on New Year’s Day. The main was outstanding really well cooked food the meat was so tender and lovely veg dishes especially the celeriac fish and cauliflower cheese. We found the starter a little heavy for us would have preferred something lighter before the large main-the ham hock and bread was very good but the soup wasn’t to our taste The desserts were spot on. Overall the experience was great and very good value-portions certainly couldn’t leave you hungry you could easily leave with a box of leftovers for later in the evening.

We have been to The Farmers Arms a few times now and each time has been equally impressive. We very much enjoyed our meal in the restaurant on Saturday evening, to celebrate our special anniversary. The service and the quality and flavours of the food were just fantastic. Thank you so much - we would love to visit again soon. x

Great experience and food to include the staffs knowledge and attentiveness. Not at all acceptable that the smokers make their way back and forth through the restaurant to the respective smoking area, very odd.

We enjoyed the meal very much - only thing we would leave off is the broth - think it wasn't right for me and too salty (for me) and before the lovely delicate and beautifully flavoured starters. Loved the tiny lemon meringue pies and all was interesting and very tasty. Staff were all great and atmosphere lovely. Really enjoyed it.
