I have previously stayed at the Jolly Brewers on my own, then stayed again in May of this year and have just come back from staying there with my wife. The place just gets better and better. The rooms have been redecorated since we last stayed, but prices have not gone up. The place gives excellent value for money, but... More

These are great motel type rooms built in the car park of the pub. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and helped secure our bikes in their locked area. The room was very clean with very comfortable beds and good shower. Great value for money for an overnight stay. We had read other reviews mentioning noise - but to... More

We had an excellent night's stay. The accommodation is not luxurious but room was much cleaner that the 4 starrer we stayed in the next night and the bed was very comfortable. The Jackie and staff were very friendly and we were made very welcome. Good eating places within easy walk.

What a great place to stay, and Jackie the Manger and her staff really are a great, genuine bunch. If you want a spotlessly clean place to stay, be looked after but at the same time have your privacy respected than the Jolly Brewers Inn is the place to stay. The rooms have everything we needed with ample space and... More

Good local with some charm. They keep there casks ales well and have a guest ale on each week. Place needs a refurb as very tired. Friendly and nice bar staff. Not eaten here yet but food seem to be all home made and looks good. Location is good close to the town centre and lots of parking front and... More

Thank you for your review of the Jolly Brewers Free House Inn. We are very much a traditional local pub when virtually all others in the town have closed or have become a bar/restaurants I am sorry you seem to have joined us when we had one guest ale when normally we have 4 or 5 cask ales on.

The Jolly Brewers is 15 mins from Stansted Airport and 30 mins from Central London. For people visiting the capital or those with an early flight it fits the bill perfectly. The rooms are basic but clean and the beds are very comfortable, You get a private bathroom with a good shower and the usual TV, coffee facilities etc. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights , booked via business, this place is an attempt at a "travel lodge" although travel shed would better describe accommodation, the rooms although clean and tidy, lead directly on to the pathway from the nearby pub , rooms have no double glazing and Venetian blinds with slats missing to separate sleepers from late night pub...

Thank you for your review. We take note of all reviews, most of which are good but especially of those that give well considered criticism. I am glad to see that you considered our rooms to be clean and tidy and the pub was so good - a compliment from you being someone who is so aware. I have looked... More

I booked a stay at the Jolly Brewers before reading the “bloody awful” review, and became concerned. I found my stay to be completely the opposite of that review. It was quite, the rooms were very clean, and the staff and service was excellent. I parked directly outside my room, but did’nt need my car as the town centre was... More

What nutter gave this place a good review, noisy and dirty, with no parking or food and not cheap for this area. The location is being redeveloped at present, and resembles Beirut. Shame because town is really nice. Chinese and Indian just down the road offer good food at reasonable price. One saving grace is pub attached is ok and... More

Stayed one night. Welcome was warm and room bigger than I was expecting as looks deceptively smaller from the outside. Everything clean and modern, beds comfortable. Pub itself has always been excellent but the accommodation has made this mymain port of call on any future trips. Price is for room only but café over road does a fantastic breakfast for... More
