Mike Griffiths, head chef at the Farmers Arms, was joined in the kitchen by Olivier Certain (Duende), Anita-Clare Field (La Petite Bouchée), Peter Mundy (The Ginger Peanut) and Tim Zekki (Duende) who created an exciting menu of the best Exmoor beef. Even the delicious dessert (by Tim Zekki) contained beef!

So here are the Exmoor Food Heroes of the night, captured by photographer Jean-Phillipe Baudey :

Welcome to The Farmers Arms, Combe Florey, Somerset.


Welcome to The Farmers Arms, Combe Florey.

Head Chef Mike Griffiths and his team have produced a new vibrant and fresh menu using the best locally sourced produce.

Our kitchen boasts a charcoal (we make our own charcoal) fired Josper oven which is famous the world over for producing the most succulent steaks and tapas.

Quality, freshly cooked and value for money is what we offer.

Our menus give you a flavour of the excellent food Mike and his team produce. Every day he is sourcing exciting fresh ingredients so our menu varies daily.

We have an excellent wine list, up to seven real ales and ciders (including some we make ourselves in our Patriot Brewery) plus an exciting range of lagers and craft beers.

Owning and running The Farmers Arms is our passion … we very much look forward to welcoming you here.
