We had a wedding in the area and my partner found The Jolly Drover online and booked it based on the good reviews. It may not look much from the outside, but the place is a little gem. Really good service by all on duty both Saturday and Sunday, clean and functional rooms and a nice breakfast. Didn't get chance... More

We were travelling south and did not wish to go any further. Saw the Jolly Drover on the internet with good reviews. We were not disappointed with the room, except that we found that the pub / restaurant was closed on the Sunday evening! However they were able to suggest another place for food, which was very good. A good... More

Stayed at the Jolly Drover mid-June for work. Had an evening meal which was absolutely fabulous, nice selection of drinks at the bar and good conversation to be had with the staff -all of which were extremely pleasant and nothing seemed too much trouble. Stayed in one of the rooms and was surprised at the standard for the rate charged.... More

This was a pleasant stay. The room is good for the price band and has all you need. The shower was excellent and the rooms are far enough away from the pub for peace and quiet. Had an evening meal and breakfast which were both great as was the beer. Staff were lovely, two young barmaids who seemed to be... More

This was the second time we had visited the Jolly Drover in as many weeks! We didn't book the table until about 45 minutes before we required it, the restaurant was very busy, but A very helpful young man fitted us in. On our arrival there was a wedding party in the bar which was lovely, so although very busy... More

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!
