We had lunch, the food is definitely pub grub style, reasonable price range, and reasonable food. The steak and ale pie was tasty but the meat was a little hard, but plenty. Would go and eat here again, lunch lime 2 mains for £12

Good down to earth food and a good choice of menu. Nice rustic feel and bags of room to sit. Very friendly.

After receiving a reply from the owner on my last review, I decided to pop in for lunch to try again. I was served by a lovely lady who was welcoming and helpful and I have to say I enjoyed my lunch very much. As we have bought a caravan close by I think we will be using this pub... More

As above was very disappointed as on the website it says food served everyday. Obviously this is not the case as they didn't on Tuesday evening 29th November. Ok for a drink but would not go again because of this.

Sorry your trip to us was not what you had hoped. We do serve Meals seven Days a week that is the case. The reason we couldnt serve you food on this occasion was because we had a problem with Gas pressure in the kitchen so we couldnt use it. The problem has now been resolved and normal service has...

Arrived last night for steak night, advertised as 2 for £19 but you can only get rump or gammon on the offer, although the others are reduced by a pound or two. Went to the bar to get drinks and the barmaid was more interested in the local's, she asked us what we wanted then walked off to finish her... More

You can see the table we sat at in the photo on the left. Ha, ha. My Mum (92) said afterwards "That was a real Pub !". And indeed it is. However it seems so much more than that. We came in via a low ramp easy for the disabled. They had 3 real ales on that were all in... More

Stayed in Ormseby St Maraget for a few days and ended up in here most nights! The staff and punters are very friendly and welcoming and there was a very warm atmosphere in the place. Excellent food, massive portions and the place is dog friendly.

We visited a couple of nights ago whilst on holiday in Caister. Very friendly staff and the food was delicious and very well priced. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Would definitely recommend.

First visit to the Jolly Farmer pub restaurant, and certainly won't be the last! This gem is situated in the village of Ormsby St Margaret, not far from Caister & Filby. Lovely surroundings & staff, great food & good value, dog friendly too, what more could you ask for? I had the Cajun chicken & ribs, see the picture below,... More

We found the jolly farmers by accident when traveling through Ormsby and decided to give it a try on Saturday evening. We booked a table for two at 6pm and arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome from the young lady behind the bar who led us to are table and gave us a menu which offered a verity... More
