More about The Farmers Arms...
A little bit about us...
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.
Home of The Swale...
Pronounced ‘mewker’, the village of Muker is a hidden treasure, a charming place, unchanged from centuries gone by and nestled between the hills of Upper Swaledale in the Northern Yorkshire Dales. Muker itself is a popular starting point for many varied walks for all abilities, views from which are breathtaking.
As well as The Farmers Arms Pub, there's also the wonderful Muker Tea Shop and Village Store, the fabulous Old School Art Gallery and Craft Centre, and the famous Swaledale Woolens.
The River Swale is not far away and is renowned for being the fastest flowing river in England.
It is a very popular destination for experienced kayakers after heavy rainfall - and when it's a little calmer, it makes an ideal place for fishing or just to stop and wonder and soak in the scenery.
