This pub sits in the “Great Pub Great Food” segment of our estate, and we would ideally be looking for a new Business Partner who has good catering skills with the ability to service high volumes. A good knowledge of adapting menus to suit different trading times and the personal skills to immerse yourself in running a site within rural community would all be an advantage here.
The Farmer’s 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.
