I've had Sunday lunch there twice this month and both have been well above expectations. Eating in a pub is not luxurious but this establishment offers good service and great food. Good drink choice as you would expect in a pub, definitely a go-to place

We ate at The JollyFarmer at the recommendation of "the doorman" at Audley Wood Hotel. It was a good recommendation. The food was fairly limited but freshly prepared and the service was good. The beer was cold and plentiful and there was a fair Malborough...More

Great pub and friendly staff. Past experiences of food here were of a high standard. This was not the same. Previously edgy, gastro pub flavours and presentation, now, a bit over cooked and grey. Sorry.
