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.

Further Information

If you’re in or around Poynton – a charming coal mining village that’s steeped in history – then Farmers Arms is, without a single speck of doubt, your best option for classic British dining. 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.

Very pleasant welcome. My friend was late meeting me so I sat at our table and ordered a drink. It was busy in the main dining room and diners were obviously enjoying themselves. The food and service were excellent. Will definitely go again.

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.

This restaurant has everything which customers could want. A smiling welcome, a good choice of food, reasonable prices, tasty food with good, friendly service by people who care. Also, importantly, Robinson's cask ales, which are all served at the correct temperature.

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.

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.

The service was excellent and the waitresses were all extremely attentive. Even a member of the kitchen staff came out to ask how our meal was. Lovely cosy atmosphere and very clean. The only thing we were not keen on was the booth seating as it is very cramped to get in and out and the table was very close . Would much prefer to have a table with chairs to be able to sit at a comfortable distance from the table.

Excellent food friendly service. , arrived early but wasn't a problem Good value for money and a good choice of meals burgers, salads and variety of main courses and starters. Dessert menu a little dissapointing as usual offerings that you seem to get everywhere. Nothing out of the ordinary which was a shame as it didn't reflect the great choice on the main menus. Only had two courses because of that but to be fair two courses was enough for lunch anyway

We just had a fantastic Sunday Lunch at Farmer's Arms. The staff was superb. They made my wife and I, who just moved into Poynton this week, and our guests from Dublin, feel like part of the family. I am in a wheelchair so they set us up at table on the ground floor. We had a great meal, great bitter, and an all-around wonderful time. We now know where are local will be! Thanks for everything, Ed & Helen Lord

An interesting menu, very friendly service, high quality food, very pleasant surroundings. We had lunch there with friends on a very busy Friday and the only drawback was that desserts took a long time to arrive and one of our party had to cancel his and leave at 2pm. (We arrived at 12.15.) Otherwise - a very enjoyable visit, and we shall certainly be back.

Love the Farmers Arms. Great food and the staff are always a delight. If I had any criticism I would like to see menu changes more often than at present.

Lovely evening with friends. Staff friendly and attentative . Menu had plenty of choices, and our waitress spoke to us about the 'Specials of the day'. Meal arrived hot and decent sized portions - we couldn't manage puddings, just went straight to the coffee! Would certainly eat there again.

Last minute treat for my girls and I. As always the service was excellent, food was good although I could have done with a hot plate as my food didn't retain its heat very well. My vegetable accompaniment was warm and not very interesting, all boiled and colourless. Overall it was a very enjoyable visit and would return.

Really nice place the food was fantastic and the staff were great. The staff were very accommodating as in our party we had two babys in car seats and they made sure we had enough room for them without having to put them on the floor.

Very disappointing, I am afraid. The food was very late in coming as the chef had to go home. The Supreme Chicken was a very small portion and didn’t have the filling in the chicken as the menu set out. The roast dinner was of very poor quality. The meat was tough and the gravy tasted powdered. The fish and chips fish was very watery with soggy batter. This isn’t the only time we have had a disappointing meal here, but it is the last, as we won’t be returning.
