First visit to the Jolly Farmers since it reopened in July after its major makeover. Once again Mac’s have brought in the design team who were trained by following ‘footballers wives’ around Ikea, as it takes a special touch to come up with animal skin print wallpaper, hanging wine bottles for lampshades and settee seating with no backs that are practically impossible to sit comfortably on.
Now primarily a restaurant with the majority of the pub laid out for dining tables with a small bar lounge area at the front section. So it now has the feel of being an upmarket Harvester and is more aligned to families for dinner than for vertical drinking.
However the positives are, a large outside decking area for alfresco drinking, although you will have to share this with the smokers, the four McMullen beers are retained and it still remains one of the few places you can reliably find the AK Mild, and if you do go for the food the menu is reasonably priced and of decent quality, if the ones we tried are to go by.

Really good since the revamp excellent food and drink at good prices. Great friendly service. Hope it stays this way and don't go down like the other Macmullens pub The Plough in Cuffley

Good pub. James the manager is good and makes you feel welcome, as do other staff. Food is decent value, ambience is pretty good. I have been there countless times and would have no hesitation in going for a meal. I agree that it may have lost some of its charm over the years but in terms of value for money, it's worth a visit.

Had lunch in here with a couple of friends yesterday. The food was good. I was driving so not drinking but I'm told the beer was fine. The service was very polite and friendly but a bit slow. The pub was comfortable and clean, except for the stinking toilets which I'm afraid marks it down quite a bit.

The Jolly Farmers is an expansive pub situated in the valley which houses Salmon's Brook on the border of Enfield and Oakwood, in an area known locally as Frog's Bottom, a fact that used to be shown by a name plaque on the frame of the pub sign.
I used to live opposite the Farmers a few moons back and although not anything special in the way of dcor or beer choice (being a Mcmullens tied house) , Ialways found it a comfortable and functional pub which did the basic things right and the traditional pub grub was usually OK.
Had the opportunity to pop in again the other night on route to The Ridgeway. Its been redecorated since the last time I was in and although the dcor is more modern and cleaner than the old lived-in flock wallpaper, I actually didnt think it was such as bland a job as done in The Robin Hood at Botany Bay. Perhaps thats because there were quite a few in on the Friday night and as there are still the separate dining and drinking areas, it still retains a bit of the traditional pub atmosphere.
Standard McMullen fair and the AK was perfectly fine. And as previously stated by other reviewers, there are bench tables outside and this pub does make an effort with the floral displays in summer.
