The Farmers Arms
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This charming hotel, the oldest in Daylesford, expertly plays two roles: local boozer and destination pub. There’s a community noticeboard in the cheerful front bar and the framed whiskers of local chaps who’ve undergone a shave for Movember. Out back there’s a large, elegant dining room, adorned with floral arrangements, to tuck into smoked trout farfalle, venison ragu and Farmers Arms Draught beer-buttered gummy shark. There’s so much room in this joint that there’s even a room or two just for the pub grubbers picking off the bar menu. A massive wine list and local delicacies such as Castlemaine Red Ale and Daylesford IPA on tap.
