Getting to the Farmers Arms

There is another Farmers Arms near Taunton, so please make sure you get the right one! We are south of Taunton, towards Ilminster.


From Taunton or the north - from J25 on the M5 follow the A358 south towards Ilminster. After approximately 2 miles you will see a right-hand turn to West Hatch and RSPCA Centre.


Keep following the RSPCA signs through the country lanes, ignoring the sign to West Hatch, and you will see us at the brow of the hill on the left-hand side.


Alternatively, coming from A303, take the A358 north from Ilminster for 4.3 miles and then turn left into Bickenhall Lane, signposted to the RSPCA Centre. After half a mile, turn right and follow the road for a mile past the RSPCA centre - The Farmers is at the top of the hill.


We are just 1.5 miles from the A358 - perfect for a lunch or coffee stop on the way to Cornwall.
