The Farmers Arms is an Inn dating back to the 16th century, originally called “The Pack Horse”. This name came from the location of the Pub being a central passing point for those travelling through the town, tiered travelers would tie their horses up outside the pub and stop on their journey for a pint. Passerby’s would see horse’s outside the pub packed up high with all their owners’ belongings, hence the name “The Pack Horse”. The name changed years later to The Farmers, as it is known today. Many refurbishments have been made since the Chattaways became owners, whilst still maintaining the buildings original character.
