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.
