Once again a place I have visited, many times, but having first visited there some 35 x years ago, it has, well let's say, moved into another dimension from 1980! The food and service is simply quite superb and the landlord Barry and his staff are just so welcoming. High on my list of recommendations, so go and enjoy!

Stayed at the Jolly Drover, a great location, good room and well appointed, and great shower. Breakfast was spot on, very friendly service from Barry & Anne, thoroughly recommended. Sadly did not eat in the vending, went to Petersfield, but the menu and pricing looked good.

Stayed here for a nearby wedding. They sorted out a brunch for us on the morning of the wedding which was fab. The quality of the cooked breakfast was 10/10 and they happily changed items and even added extra sausages and bacon for the same price. We then stayed overnight in one of their rooms. The room was very clean... More

Good food, both breakfast and dinner. I had forgotten what poached eggs should taste like until breakfast on the second day. Comfortable beds. Cheerful and helpful staff - all of them. Twin-bedded room and large bathroom were very cold when we arrived (6 March) and took a couple of hours to warm up. The bathroom was not really comfortable until... More

Great pub for good quality food, always fresh and cooked perfectly. The Grayshott sausages and mash being my personal favourite! Always friendly welcoming service and a good choice of beers to boot! Definitely worth it!!

The Jolly Drover is one of the best pub accommodations I have stayed at and will most definitely be back when in the area. It was a cold evening but when I walked in there was blazing log fire with comfortable leather settee's just begging to be sat on. The decor is in keeping with the pub's age with a... More

I booked 2 rooms for a friend and I at The Jolly Drover, as we were going to a wedding about 20mins away, and this was the closest B&B that was in budget. I wasn't expecting much, but didn't really care when I booked it - it was a little last minute and I didn't even check all the reviews...Based... More
