The Farmers Arms is still trading and remains tied to the Donnington Brewery. Above the front door there is some faded writing painted on the wall. This is now partly obscured by the porch that has since been built. I believe that the name painted above the door may be Etheridge but I have no records on when he or she may have been landlord there.
