Thank you for your informative review. I have checked the heater in the bedroom and have found that the half heat / full heat setting to be faulty. This problem has been rectified and now the room does not resemble a sauna! Thanks once again. Regards Barry. More

Stayed here for one night when attending the evening party of a wedding at the Tithe Barn. So glad we stayed here rather than anonymous chain hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home, including recommending we turned on the heating before going out so the room would be wam when we got back. Decided... More

Thank you for you very detailed review. Marmite with iceberg letuice is my favourite! You are correct about the preserves being made locally, very locally, in our kitchen as it happens! Emma hopes you stay again because she said she enjoyed your company. More

If I stayed closer, I'd never be away from the place! Three of us were working in Petersfield, and like another reviewer, had absolutely no wish to stay in one of the ubiquitous plastic 'chain' hotels. What a delight it turned out to be. From arrival right through to our departure, everything was spot-on. The food was superb, with a... More

I stayed at The Jolly Drover on 12/11/2013 while on business in the area. The check in was great, room very clean and maintained to a very good standard. The pub is a quirky little place with a fantastic menu, the food was swerved quickly and was all very tasty. Barry & Anne's breakfast service was perfect. I also enjoyed... More

I had only 4 days in UK. Heathrow -Liss-Heathrow. Most comfortable room, a FABULOUS shower, (after 3 weeks of awful showers in Ireland) and excellent, plentiful food. I enjoyed mingling with the locals who came to eat and socialise in the old pub atmosphere. I found the staff friendly and helpful in all matters especially local know how. Host Barry... More

I very good stayed at the Jolly Drover last weekend as I was attending a wedding nearby. The landlord was welcoming attentive and delivered good service both in the restaurant the bar and the accommodation. THe food chosen from a wide menu was very good as was the beer. The accommodation was clean with excellent facilities.

Thanks again Barry. Fantastic pub, beautiful homemade food, accommodation perfect with large showers. Staff were friendly helpful and informative. Thanks for my Bacon butties in the morning as I was leaving too early for breakfast. I really can't fault it & perfect for visiting Goodwood (20 mins away).
