user reviews of the Jolly Sportsman, Chesham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Looks good since the refurb, but the young male staff let it down - surly, unsmiling and uncommunicative, especially the one who often sits smoking at the table at the front door. I ordered some food and asked for ketchup etc and he pointed round the corner - surely they should be brought to the customer? And can the staff stop using the Wetherspoons favourite questions "who's next?"

Reopened (I visited 19 May 12) following a complete refurbishment inside and out which went on for about a month, which indicates how much has been done. Had been a complete dive and when it closed I did not think it would reopen. All beautifully clean and lovely (what a change from before) and serving food. Very friendly staff and nice atmosphere and children are welcome. I had Tring Brewery's Side Pocket to a Toad. There are three handpumps (London Pride, Greene King IPA). A great addition to Chesham, especiaaly this side of town.

Shabby and uninviting on the outside and likewise on the inside. Badly kept beer and unwelcoming staff.

Fantastic friendly pub ... Clientele are an extremely welcoming mixed bunch, from 18 to 87. Great garden, smokers very well catered for too. yes the back bar needs decorating, but it is on the cards. Best pub in Chesham, a real LOCAL pub.

In desperate need of redecoration and sanitisation!!
It is not a pleasant place to be in, and I pity anyone who has the misfortune to stubble upon it.
This place is in certain need of a visit from Kim and Aggie!!!
