The Jolly Farmer is a historic pub located in the beautiful countryside of Cookham Dean. The pub dates back to 1788 and many of its original features are still in place. Since 1987, The Jolly Farmer has been owned by the community.

We serve a selection of traditional pub dishes and weekly changing specials. Our meat is all free range, sourced from local small farms within a 5 mile radius.

If you're longing for a warm fireplace during the cold months, then come and keep warm next to one of our toasty log fires. We also have a stunning beer garden, offering the best spot in Cookham for a refreshing drink or an alfresco meal when the sun is shining.

And for the children, we have our popular play area, so the whole family are welcome to have a Jolly time, even the dog.

Good traditional pub with open fire and small, but uncrowded dining room. Large outdoor area with plenty of seating and kids play area. Service was friendly and quick, and the food (sunday lunch) was good. The pub and restaurant were bustling, giving the place a nice country pub ambience.

My family and I had a wonderful Sunday lunch at the Jolly Farmer. Most of us had roast beef, one had the roast chicken and I had the monkfish - all delicious. We particularly loved the cavolo nero - I had to stop myself from going into the kitchen and asking for the chef's recipe! Definitely worth going back for. All washed down with a particularly exquisite wine. Desserts were chocolate brownies and apple crumbles, both plate-scrapingly good. Atmosphere was lovely and peaceful, a really cosy vibe. Staff were welcoming and friendly. This was my first dining experience in Cookham, known for its great places to eat, and it did not disappoint. I look forward to returning!

Quaint country pub serving locally sourced meats from farms a few miles away. Fish bought by the landlord direct from Billingsgate. Everything we had was really tasty & fresh. Service was lovely. Open fires. Proper pub with excellent food & service.

Cosy pub with open fires, great beer and child friendly. However the food was very average and it cost our family (2 adults and 2 kids) 90 pounds for a Sunday lunch! If you want a cosy pub with great beer and a plate of chips this is perfect. However wouldn’t recommend having a meal. Our fish tasted like nothing (Waitrose frozen is much better) and the other meals were also very average.

The burger was cooked at too low a temperature and the apple crumble was sour.

New Year's Eve dinner with my husband. Warm hospitality in local pub with very good food. Live music a bonus. Have eaten here on several occasions and always a pleasure.

The food was great quality - freshly prepared and very tasty.
Excellent value for money.

Great cosy pub with excellent local beers. Fires lit in winter. Prefect pizzas that change regularly. Friendly staff. If you want a pint, pizza or more look no further than the Jolly Farmer.

Excellent pizza as usual - thin & crispy - and mussels were delicious.
