Literally risen from the ashes after a fire destroyed the original building dating back to the 15th century in January 2017, the Farmers Arms in Coggins Lane in Combe Florey is now a busy traditional pub with a modern twist where great pride is taken in serving outstanding food.
A charcoal fired Josper oven in the kitchen is used for producing the most succulent steaks and fish dishes. Even the charcoal is produced by the Farmers Arms.
A Covid safe garden of thatch-covered tables with heaters for when the weather turns cold and an outside tiki-style bar provide a fabulous atmosphere. The popular wood fired pizza oven is in operation on Friday evenings and all day Saturdays.
The Farmers Arms is well-known for the variety of real ales and exclusively local ciders as well as an exciting range of lagers and craft beers. The wine list is also extensive.
A firm Exmoor Food Fest favourite, the Farmers Arms have played host to several foodie events such as the “Celebration of Beef” a few years ago when four guest chefs joined the Farmers Arms’ head chef to produce five courses involving beef – including the dessert. In 2023, they are hosting the VIP Launch Dinner when 4 guest chefs will be joining the Joe and Sophie in the kitchen for the night.
