Our waitress was very attentive to us and our 2 dogs who were spoiled with dog biscuits, we will come back if in... More

I love the jolly farmer. It all tastes home made, I've been many times and I've never been disappointed. The catch of the day is always good - great value as well.

Came for a casual dinner with my mum and brother one evening over Easter. We all ended up ordering the burger, which came with chips, and oh my god it was great. Perfectly cooked burger with perfectly cooked chips. One of those great meals. Only given it four stars because the wine was a bit average for the price, but... More

Stopped off for a quick Sunday Lunch. However, this pub is clearly popular for food. It was also the end point for a bicycle club and thus the pub was extremely busy. Despite this, we were served immediately but warned that the food may take a while. We ordered fish and chips which was well worth the wait. The Fish... More

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...
