user reviews of the Jolly Farmer, Dronfield

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

After leaving the Peak District National Park, the quality of my Derbyshire pub crawl improved, firstly with the Rutland Arms at Holmesfield (not listed on BITE) and then with the Jolly Farmer at Dronfield Woodhouse. The surroundings aren't quite as nice as the Peak District (this pub is located in a local shopping arcade). But the ale range wasn't bad, despite a lack of darker ales. The 4 ales were Brains The Rev James, Drone Valley Gosforth Gold, Little Critters Blonde Bear & Marston's 61 Deep. Luckily, I enquired about real cider. I was initially offered Weston's Old Rosie. But it then transpired that they also had Thatcher's Stan's Big Apple & Garden Cider Company Plum & Ginger Cider. They offer CAMRA discounts, but only on pints. I also opted for a ham and cheese toasted sandwich, which was good value. The interior has a number of different areas, including a small bar area for drinkers. Most is set out for diners. I sat in a rather dark area not far from the entrance. Worth a visit though. I was surprised that the Jolly Farmer hasn't been in the Good Beer Guide since 2013.

truly awful pub in middle of bland suburbian nightmare of an estate, avoid at all cost and go and find a real pub, theres plenty around.

30 years old estate pub which attempts to replicate an old country style with a mix of stone flags, timbers and tiled floors. Obviously, beamed ceilings and lots of woodwork and it almost succeeds. Although open plan, it is divided into individual areas. A good selection of real ales is to be found as well as evening meals at a reasonable price. Well worth a run out from Chesterfield or Sheffield on the 43 bus.
