The Farmers Arms is a quintessential 14th century, Grade II Listed, thatched Inn, located 7 miles North West of the county town of Taunton and 9 miles North of Wellington. The property exudes character with exposed cob walls, low beamed ceilings, mediaeval fireplace and flagstone floors. The property was almost completely rebuilt following a fire in January 2017. The rebuild was done very sympathetically, retaining almost all of the original features at ground floor level whilst adding some modernised areas including the customer toilet extension, an extended bar, completely redesigned and reequipped commercial kitchen and a glazed block which allows more light into the premises. The business was reopened in late November 2018, reestablishing itself as one of the most popular country inns in Somerset.
The Farmers Arms is located just outside of the beautiful village of Combe Florey, not far from the A358 Taunton to Minehead road, within striking distance of the Quantock Hills (Area of Outstanding National Beauty). The village is noted as being the main residence of the English writer Evelyn Waugh who is buried in a private plot of land next to the churchyard.
If travelling by car, access is on the south side of the second bridge from Taunton (A358), under the West Somerset Railway.
