About The Farmer’s Arms
Grizedale Arts’ relaunch of this historic inn on the edge of the Lake District began in 2021. We reimagined the neglected site as ‘an inn for the 21st century’ and a lockdown fundraising campaign to save the pub from dereliction attracted community investors and donors from around the world to join the purchase. We now offer a restaurant & bar, café, outdoor wood-fired pizza oven, shop and holiday accommodation alongside community events and diverse arts, education and volunteering opportunities.

We have a growing reputation for good food and drink, using many local suppliers and a distinctively seasonal approach to our menus.
