We were passing through at lunchtime and did a quick google of places to eat. The Farmers Arms came up as highly recommended. We dropped in and were immediately impressed with the warm friendly and welcoming interior. An option to eat in the bar area or restaurant was offered. We chose the bar which was cosy , comfortable and a... More

My boyfriend & I went here for dinner while in the Lake District. The food was very good for the price, especially considering the large portions we received. My boyfriend had a fillet steak which was very reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly & helpful; we would likely return again if we lived in the area.

Called in for at The Farmers for lunch this afternoon and would recommend highly. Although busy the service was fast and the food well presented with large portions. My partner had a seafood selection which was really fresh and we'll cooked and along with the range of ales and friendly locals it made for an enjoyable afternoon overall.

Nothing better on a winters day than a lovely hot sandwich. Cumberland sausage, mushroom and gravy absolute delicious as was the chicken, brie and substituted sun dried tomato sandwich. Chips and onion rings scrumptious. Good value, lovely decor and helpful staff. Can't be beaten!

We came here during our honeymoon, recommended by the local butcher after asking him where to go if we wanted to eat seafood. We had an amazing lunch, I had lobster while my husband had the seafood parcel. Both were to die for, absolutely gorgeous! Served by a lovely waiter. Nice clean toilets too.

It's one of my local establishments but I hadn't eaten here for such a long time. Six of us had dinner here recently and every aspect was excellent. Good service and excellent food. This is a busy, popular restaurant and maintains its quality of food and service. The sharing platters for starters are a great idea and good value and... More

The food is amazing, portions are massive so you may not need a starter. The service is fast and friendly, and the pub has a lovely cosy atmosphere.

The food and service was good with massive portions if you are capable of eating them! I would recommend to book as they were certainly busy, however this was half term.
