About Farmers Arms

It’s no exaggeration to say that Farmers Arms is known by everybody in Poynton, and that’s because this fine British pub has been standing proud at the top of Park Lane – right in the heart of town – for decades. Recently refurbished, this is a beautiful pub and restaurant with bags of rustic charm. Of course, the bar is stocked full of fine wines and locally brewed beers and ales, but the kitchen is where Farmers Arms really comes into its own. British pub classics are refined and done absolutely right here, whether you’re looking for a light bite at lunch or a wholesome fill at dinner. It’s difficult to overstate the class on show at this, the jewel in Poynton’s crown.

More about Farmers Arms, Poynton

This well-loved pub and restaurant can be found on Park Lane, a beautiful road that is very much the hub of everything that happens in Poynton and thus, Farmers Arms is an important part of the community. Recently renovated, this hotspot in the heart of town is stylish, welcoming and refined. You’ll find no plain old pub decor here, instead you can expect a vibrant wall of flowers, exposed brick, rustic wood and, even though this is a casual dining spot, a feel of sophistication that is further enhanced by the terrific British cuisine that comes out of the kitchen.

Farmers Arms is the perfect choice regardless of the time of day. By day enjoy a soothing coffee alongside a freshly-prepared sandwich – the popular Farmers club or the posh fish finger both guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, but in the evening, British classics are mastered with a distinctive dash of Farmers flare. To begin, consider a whole mini baked camembert with rosemary or some wonderfully rich Bury black pudding with hash cake. For mains there are award-winning handmade pies as well sauteed calves liver with potato puree, onions rings, bacon and a mushroom gravy. Also wise not to miss is the duo of lamb, confit shoulder paired with pan roasted rump, while the classics of sausage and mash or beer battered fish are quite easily the best you’ll find in Poynton. As we have said, the elegant Poynton town centre has Farmers Arms to be immensely proud of. Reserve a table now and look forward to proper British dining.

As usual we had an amazing time, the food never disappoints so thank you to the Chef. We were so impressed even more than we usually are by the service as the people who do this at the Farmers Arms are just so lovely. Today we had the pleasure of Caitlin who made every effort to ensure we were ok and happy, even down to informing us of an accident and to be careful going home. Caitlin your parents will be so proud of you, thank you so much. See you all soon and thank you x 😃

We enjoyed choosing from a menu which offered a good selection of starters and mains in a very pleasant restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere. All four of us thought that the dishes chosen were well presented and good quality. Our chosen wine, a Malbec, was enjoyable enough to warrant ordering a second bottle. Moving on to dessert we again thought there was a good choice. Although there seemed to be a delay in getting the meal started, the service was efficient and friendly. When the time came to pay we were not disappointed particularly considering we had 2 bottles of wine and coffees to finish.

As always, lovely meal served efficiently by attentive and smiling staff. Have been numerous times to The Farmers Arms and have never left disappointed. It may be a bit pricier than your standard pub grub but you get what you pay for.

Excellent food, service at times a little slow . No complaints about the staff who were exrtremely courteous but very hard worked. Been to Farmers Arms when quieter during the week when the service was excellent like the food. Atmosphere very good and a very pleasant venting spent with friends.

Farmers Arms is an attractive environment to either eat or just drink, with a comprehensive "pub restaurant" menu, served by attentive smiling staff. The Beer-battered fish was cooked to be one of the very best. Value for money just about right.
