Farmers Arms Apperley



Ledbury Road, Lower Apperley, Gloucester, GL19 4DR

The Farmers Arms is situated on the Ledbury Road on the edge of the Cotswolds and in an area of outstanding natural beauty.  Being shadowed by the impressive Malvern hills, rolling countryside and nearby wildlife reserves are just a few of the reasons happy customers return to this delightful pub time and time again.




The Farmers Arms is set in a rural location on the main Ledbury Road and almost sits in the shadow of the Malvern Hills.  The pub prides itself on still having the quintessential great British pub feel about it with low wooden beam ceilings and roaring fires in the winter.  The Farmer's is a very successful food led destination site, whilst still accommodating the vast number of tourists, walkers and cyclists to the area.
