“Good service but basic food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Very busy, but not too bad on waiting times. Service good but menu a little pedestrian and the quality not great either. OK for basic pub grub I guess.

“NIcely refurbished”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We visited for lunch at the end of December and found the food value for money. Service was OK but the staff were young and inexperienced. The decor was modern and it was light and spacious if rather chilly.

“A Nice Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We visited the Jolly Farmers on 18th August 2012. It had just been re-furbished which is very pleasing to the eye. The service was very good and we were offered a free complimentary coffee.
Plenty of staff at hand. Would definately go there again.

“Worst Sunday lunch ever taken”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This pub/ restaurant has recently been refurbished and thought we would give it a try. Initially I tried to book a table for Sunday Lunch but was told you couldn't book for Sunday- I said that we intended to eat late and was advised that I should get a table for four easily enough but by 4pm one could expect the beef to have gone.
The restaurant is well furnished and we were shown to a table immediately although the place was packed. Two of us chose the chicken spit-roast and two chose the Roast Chicken.
The roast chicken was exactly the same as the spit roast chicken although it came with warm vegetables that were tasteless and definitely 'remoulds' The spit roast chicken was bland and thrown on a plate with a jacket potatoe and pirri pirri sauce [as requested].
The meal was the worst that my wife and I have had at any restaurant and we ordered different meals.
The meals in the week may be better but my advice is avoid the Sunday Lunch - it was packed on our visit but I am sure it will die off. Try the Beehive [Edmonton] or the Orange Tree [winchmorte hill] - different class - not mass cooking [there must be over 120 places at the Jolly Farmers]
