Jolly Farmers Details

Trading style

The Jolly Farmers sits at the heart of its community and is predominantly a wet led pub. The current food offering is Sunday lunches and some bar snacks throughout the week but there is an opportunity here to further increase turnover by introducing more of a traditional bar meals menu. It is a friendly community pub with both pool, darts and football teams. Some of the locals also enjoy dominos in the evening. There is a cask ale offer but this is another area that could be increased to boost trade as not all of the pumps are utilised. At weekends there is an entertainment offer with regular karaoke monthly live bands.
