We stayed at The Jolly Drover for 2 nights as we were guest's at a wedding. What a wonderful B & B the room was clean, comfortable. The breakfast was cooked to order using local produce and was scrummy. Lots of parking and free WiFi what more can you ask for. Would definitely recommend this B&B .

We were warmly received at this pub. The food was of excellent high quality and was freshly cooked. The service was good and the staff went out of their way to be helpful. Lots of room to park and lovely walks around.

We have been here several times and have always been pleased with both the friendly service and the well cooked food. Good beer and wine. Good value. Easily reached just north of Petersfield on the old A3.

Nice food but far too much on the plate. A very old fashioned pub with older clientele so it wasn't really for me. Haven't tried Sunday lunch but heard it's nice. The young waitresses were nice. The tables are packed in tight. Took half hour for food to come. The dessert was microwaved so a little soggy. Service extremely slow.

Whilst at work we broke down in the car park of this pub it was a cold and wet evening and we were supplied with tea and coffee from the extremely friendly bar staff and waited in the warmth by the fire awaiting recovery would recommend highly nice cosy friendly pub

I stayed at The Jolly Drover with my husband and 2 teenage sons for 3 nights from 9-12th February, whilst attending our niece's wedding at Tithe Barn. We had 2 rooms, 1 double, 1 twin. The accommodation was neat, spotlessly clean and well serviced by all the 'niceties & necessities' - tea/coffee making facilities (inc cafetiere)/bottled water, hairdryer, iron/ironing board/trouser...

Just enjoyed a superb lunch with a friend at this pub. Excellent food beautifully cooked. no fewer than six different kinds of vegetables as well as roast potatoes. Ample helpings but welcome option to have a slightly smaller amount. Friendly efficient staff. We highly recommend this.

I stayed for two nights on a business trip. The room was small, but clean and perfectly adequate. A nice touch was the cafetière and fresh coffee as well as the usual tea bags. Shower was powerful, although one of those that you have to stand under as you turn it on, hoping you can get the temperature right quickly....
