About the Pub

Located near Royden Park, a little off the beaten track, the Farmers Arms has been a popular pub for many years. Originally the Farmers Arms, the pub was refurbished and reopened as the Old Rathbone in October 2017, reverting back to the old name of the Farmers Arms under new management in April 2019. There is a significant food offering while retaining a traditional pub atmosphere with a large drinking area in the main room and a separate smaller bar. A large grass beer garden is extensively used throughout the summer months and with a children’s play area this is a family friendly pub. Exposed beams and bare brick walls inside means that this stunning building is well worth a visit. The black & white photo was taken in 1986.
