We visited for a Mothers Day meal at lunch time. We all had three courses each. The food as absolutely gorgeous and highly recommended. Lovely friendly atmosphere. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Overall a very enjoyable meal. (We have also had meals in the evening with friends - all excellent) We will definitely be returning again!

Been here twice, once for my birthday, last year, and again last night for valentines day. On both occasions the food was great. Basingstoke is not awash with great restaurants, the town centre is mostly chains and for good pub food it's rarely in walking distance so driving/taxis required, although we did walk back last night and it took 50...

A lovely country pub and friendly staff. All food is cooked fresh and it was excellent. When it came to puddings, staff had to come back twice as each item I ordered was not available. I went for the crumble which could have been a bit warmer. Our server did not charge us for the puddings!! I would go back... More

My fiancé and I had a late dinner here after arriving from London. It was recommended by our taxi driver, as it is his local pub. I had the traditional fish and chips which was delicious and well prepared. Our server was kind and helpful with the beer selection. The setting of a traditional village pub was quite charming.

Went quite late in the afternoon and the food was terrible. Roast potatoes were obviously from earlier in the day and had been deep fried to reheat them - rock hard, greasy and inedible

Over the Holiday break, my best girlfriend and I were visiting the Dummer and Bakingstoke area from New York. One day we decided to go on a walk in the country side and we walked and walked until we were lost and in the middle of no where. We kept walking and finally stumbled into a pub, the Jolly Farmer....
