The Farmers Arms Hotel
This award-winning restaurant nestled in an old-fashioned pub has a great atmosphere. The robust menu boasts sublime comfort food using superior Daylesford and Macedon produce. In summer, you might find rosemary and garlic pan-roasted baby chicken with sweet corn purée, asparagus and Istra prosciutto; in winter, hearty rabbit is braised in spiced red wine with cotechino sausage, soft carrots and lentils. In addition to a traditional front bar, this stylish tucked-away restaurant has an impressive wine list and wide range of ales from which to choose. There are comfortable couches with a selection of children’s books as well as a pretty courtyard for families to unwind and relax at this favourite hotel that is so much more than a pub.
