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.

Smokers walking through restaurant to rear smoking area is a minor issue, especially when the door is continually opened on a cold evening. Other than that, everything has been faultless on all occasions we have been to the Farmers Arms. The staff are first class.

This was my 2nd visit for Sunday lunch. Both were delicious and it’s very good value for money. Will be my number 1 choice for a Sunday lunch from now on.

Our guests (used to fine dining in London and Surrey) loved the atmosphere and appreciated the food, particularly the duck and beef. My husband had the vegetarian option and declared it "too reduced" and did not really enjoy it. The chocolate tart was very good though. We thought it was rather over priced for what it was. I had the dish that included 'runner beans' but had only one small slice of pickled bean!

i have had many meals from bar meals to sunday roast and also experienced the fine dining,all i can say is you have to try them to believe just how much effort they go into the quality of food and the pubs warmth atmosphere.the decor is amazing and second to none. looking at the review you think to yourself this is sneaky staff remarks but trust me i only just moved into the village begin December and literally cannot find a fault with the pub or staff. ps the chip shop which is part of the pub has curry sauce and minted peas to die for and is the same quality of food you can experience in the other side. 10/10

Really enjoyed our new year's day brunch. Would love more of this sort of food on the regular bar menu instead of so much deep fried food. Great friendly service as always.

The menu gives enticing glimces to what is going to happen to your tasted buds. You could be forgiven in thinking Oh Dear! but please don’t worry. The Scallops were so well cooked they melted into the mushroom ketchup and wild mushrooms without their soft flavours being lost. The parfait was soft, light and simply perfect- I would match it to one we had recently at Tom Kerridge's Michelin star restaurant in Marlow. The partridge arrived slightly pink and was brimming with flavour. Mains were beef with carrots - a beautifully cooked and rested medium slice of sirloin with slow cooked Shin in a deep rich sauce that has that yummy sickness you get from marrow in a well made stock. I had the cod with highly smoked mussels. Eating this dish created levels of taste you expect to find in food from world renowned restaurants- so good I didn’t want to share the tastes. Desserts didn’t let us down either. Apple and salted caramel tart was sublime and the chocolate dessert with chocolate sorbet (I asked for vanilla ice cream) was so light and full of flavour. Great meal with some amazing wines from a small but so well put together list. Lastly when you ask for coke in Devon you nearly always get served a Pepsi I was offered a Madagascan coke! they have really thought about the customer experience. This is only improved by the people working there. There is a small degree of slight lack of comfort from a few of the younger staff as they get used to this degree of attention to detail, but the smile wins over every time. We were so impressed by our third visit we have all written to the AA and Michelin.
