Excellent fresh cooked food; happy to alter the order to accommodate dietary requirements. Great choice & all reasonably priced. Good choice of beers and cider on tap as well as soft & alcoholic drinks. Friendly staff & lovely relaxed atmosphere. Loved it so much we've booked again for next Sunday. Making it our local.

Absolutely brilliant in the garden and in the country too. I recommend this pub, good service, good beer,... More

We happened to come across this pub, had a drink there and decided to return later on for dinner, which we did. What a good decision! We were early so there were not many punters yet. The dinner we had was absolutely divine and we enjoyed it very, very much! Top marks! We also learned that one of the waitresses... More

Beautiful place and delicious food. The drive is a lovely bonus! We stopped by here on our way back to London from Stonehenge. The garden out back is also beautiful if you're there on a day with good weather.

Came to this pub for dinner and it was really good. We had the beef burger and fish&chips. All cooked great. Puddings after were also good. Would recommend.

I took my 90 year old 'best friend' for a glass of wine and some lunch, we are never disappointed by the catch of the day, the last time we visited we had the sea bass which was pan fried and utterly delicious! Today the catch was mackerel, I have never been a big fan but thought i should try... More

I emailed a list of what we all wanted, with our names, the staff came out calling out our names with our meals. It ran like clockwork. We had everything from... More

Just got back from an amazing lunch. Food was timed perfectly, sized correctly, and tasted scrumptious. We all cleared our plates. Fantastic service, great quality food too. Would highly recommend. There were 10 of us, and another table for 10 and an 8.. and they'd cleverly spaced our timings out so no one had to wait for anything. Perfect. Great... More

6 girls stopped for light lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the choice of home made light bites, starters and mains. I had the home made fishcakes which were really yummy with home made tartare sauce, very good! The rare roast beef on ciabatta looked good too.

I have been running an unofficial local pub 'ham, egg and chips' comparison table with some friends and Jolly Farmer Clidessden is hands down the winner. We recommend you try them! Enjoy!
