The Farmers Arms Muker Upper Swaledale
Under new ownership, The Farmers has been updated…
walk in for lunch, but definitely book for dinner.
I visit this pub a lot in the Summer and the Winter, as the walking around this area is stunning, an absolute paradisal idyll (always wanted to use that line). The summer time wild flower meadows around the back of Muker are beautiful, three of which are Prince Charles’ 60 coronation meadows to celebrate his mother’s coronation… more information... and are SSSi.
Getting on to the Farmers….
A traditional Yorkshire Dales pub in the heart of Swaledale.
The Farmers Arms is incredibly lucky to be situated within the stunning scenery and spectacular walking country of Upper Swaledale.
Upper Swaledale is one of those places that once you discover, you never want to leave.
It is completely unspoilt, with quaint villages nestled between the hills and the scenery is just breathtaking.
At the Farmers Arms, our philosophy, like those who have gone before us, is to preserve its history, traditions and atmosphere.
Step inside and find a stone flagged floor & our unique dry stone wall fireplace, beautifully kept real ales, some from our very own microbrewery, try the likes of Farmers Shepherdess, or Crackpot IPA, if your a lager drinker our popular Farmers Draft Ewe is a must.
Freshly cooked food and a very warm welcome from our small, but perfectly formed team.
You won’t find a mobile phone signal or Wi-Fi, loud music, TV screens or gaming machines.
Muddy boots and well behaved dogs on leads are always welcome.
We are family friendly but please respect our size and environment.
We only serve food which is freshly made so at busy times there may be a wait, we work on a first come first serve basis at all times, however bookings may be made for larger parties.
Walking groups are very welcome but please let us know in advance so we can try to make sure we are adequately staffed.
Check the opening times… don’t assume… closed Mondays, Tuesdays… but check.
