Absolutely fantastic choice of four local beers in excellent condition. There are 2 Greene King and 2 GK list guests which we naturally didn't bother with given the aforementioned choice. The best I had was a Long Dog Porter which was superb. The walk from the station was just over 15 minutes but well worth it to what must be the best real ale pub in Farnham. Never thought I'd say that about GK pub as I can't stand their beers.

A Saturday afternoon visit to Farnham for football and a chance to visit the 3 pubs that feature in the 2016 GBG.

First up is the Greene King managed Jolly Sailor on West Street just past the football ground. Externally and internally this is an attractive pub with a warm welcome from the landlord on my arrival at the bar.

It's partly partisoned inside creating a split seating area, to the left of the bar is a tv that on my visit was on mute and showing motor racing. There are 2 gardens , one to the rear and the sun trapped side garden which is where I sat catching the afternoon sun.

8 hand pumps with 7 ales on, a mix of GK ales & ales from the local area, in this weather I went for a light ale and choose a pint of Bonds Brew Goldihops @ 3.9%, a nicely kept ale.

The 2 pub Alsatians looked very hot & bothered and certainly weren't very menacing in this heat!

I stopped just for 1 pint before heading to football, it's a nice pub and another tick for me.

In early 2013 new tenants moved into the Jolly Sailor, spruced it up without destroying its atmosphere as a real "local", and persuaded the owners (Greene King) to allow them to sell a range of beers "free of tie". The more "impolite" customers of previous times have been successfully discouraged and there is now a great mix of local people using the pub. Beer prices are fairer than the town centre pubs although this is only a 5 to 10 minutes walk away. Food is simple and good value, too. As well as the ubiquitous GK IPA and Abbot, there is usually a rarer GK draught ale (recently Belhaven Burns Brown, Howell's Frosty Bells) and at least one guest beer, but usually three. These come from mainly local breweries such as Longdog, Itchen Valley, Ascot, Tillingbourne or Windsor & Eton, often including a dark ale such as mild or stout. Landlords Iain and Sarahjane are a little reserved until you get to know them, but work hard to make this a great pub. Music takes place most Friday and Saturday evenings. Ignore the prat who describes Sarahjane as Hitler, she's a pussycat, and was only trying to get a rather unprofessional band member to meet the needs of the pub and its customers after several earlier requests to adjust their volume!

Doing all the right things, refurbished, good selection of real ales, live music etc etc. but my message to the new owners is lighten up for gods sake, the landlady has all the charm of adolph hitler without his charisma, "turn the music down, turn the music down". As for the landlord, go on crack a smile you're in the hospitality trade now, people are in your boozer for a good time at least give the impression that you are glad to see them even if you're not
