Having consulted the 2015 GBG we make a detour on our way between Whitby and Kirkby Lonsdale to this quaint ex slate mine village In the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

The Farmers Arms is on the main road through the village and cannot be missed, though there's not much parking available.

The ample seating area to the front is a sun trap and was the perfect spot to sit with a pint and a sandwich.

Very traditional inside with low ceiling beams and a flagstone floor. Several diners were inside to escape the warm weather.

4 cask ales available, Theakstons Old Peculiar, Black Sheep Best Bitter and 2 from Yorkshire Dales Brewing Co , I went for the Farmers Bitter @ 3.7%. A cracking pint that was well poured and kept.

The wife and I each had a sandwich for lunch and it was very good, fresh with good ingredients.

Lovely village pub that I wouldn't have even have considered without the help of the GBG and my sat nav.

We were up in the Dales for the 1st time in July and fell in love with Muker. The Farmers is the only pub in the village and it's just perfect for walkers, bikers, passing sheep farmers and soft southerners in 4x4's, (us),
Here I discovered Black Sheep Best Bitter and my mate settled for draught Thatchers Cider. The food is good wholesome well prepared English grub, reasonably priced and served by friendly staff, in fact everyone we met was friendly and ready for a chat. PS. Asda do a bottled version of Black Sheep Bitter which is very pleasant, pour yourself a glass and imagine being in the Dales. Perfick!

Super friendly and welcoming. Beer is just the best. Food very good for what you pay. Can't fault it.

Pubs like this are fast dying out so it is wonderful to visit one that maintains our age old traditions and remains a quality inn. Serving great food at reasonable prices and served by helpful, friendly and hard working staff, the accompanying ale and wine selection is varied, sensibly priced and top notch.
If there were more pubs not willing to compromise on service and service to earn a quick buck or pander to latest fashions then maybe, just maybe, the on trade would not be in such steep decline. Helps being in prime walking country but all the basic principles still apply. Well worth the blisters!

I used to visit this pub over the new year for many years, I have looked for a place to rent for coming new year, but was not able to find one.

Always enjoyed the visit, will try to make a visit in the summer.
