Very impressed - lovely country pub with great food, best part for me though is the amazingly friendly staff, we were made to feel most welcome & would recommend this pub to all. Especially as we are not locals at all & picked this pub from web & reviews on here :)

We have been coming to the Jolly Farmer regularly over the past few years and we have never been disappointed. The food is always good, the value is excellent, the service friendly and the atmosphere cozy. For the me the real joy of the Jolly Farmer is the way it combines being a local pub with an eatery - something... More

We ate here two nights in a row last weekend. The table was reserved and we arrived a bit early both evenings. On both occasions it took an hour and a half for one course leaving not enough time for desserts or coffee despite leaving two hours for the meal. The room was not busy as far as we could... More

We were looking for a nice, local pub for some good food. We intended to go to the nearby Fox pub, but after waiting in the parking lot for 15 minutes, a local stopped by saying it was closed for that one night. However, the kind gentleman said we should go to the Jolly Farmer instead. After giving us directions,... More

Great value for money meals always well presented and cooked to perfection. Excellent choice of beers and ciders served by some extremely helpful staff. It's always my first stop when visiting Basingstoke.

Took family out for a meal after hearing about this quiet pub not far from where I live. Food was of a reasonable price but was wonderful in taste. We all had a different dish and each if us were truly amazed by how good they tasted! Staff were polite and very engaging and only too happy to cater for... More

I went with work colleagues after a short walk in the area. The pub had a good selection of beers, ciders and soft drinks. We ate a selection of "finger foods" out side at the rear of the pub. The range of food was good unless you were a vegetarian and the quality was consistently good for a pub. I... More

Very disappointed....previous visits we have had a wonderful experience. Staff were clueless in customer care. Food took nearly hour to arrive, when the pub was not busy.. Portions were small, over priced and just ordinary. Choice of puddings was limited and heated in microwave till it tasted like rubber. For a Saturday night in the middle of a heat wave... More

This place has improved over the years, the beer is always kept well. The food is quite good though it does depend on what you choose, one of our party had the burger with brie and it was exceptional, others in the party had the chicken, though the chicken was beautifully moist there was a lack of vegetables which would...
