Jolly Farmer returns
Date set for re-opening as village pub becomes White Brasserie
THE Jolly Farmer reopens to the public on October 24 after extensive renovation.
The original Jolly Farmer occupied the site throughout the 20th century and was much loved by locals, before it became The Village Hall.
The new gastro pub is operated by The White Brasserie, a subsidiary of the Brasserie Bar Co.
The 3,800 square foot space has undergone a complete refurbishment and can accommodate 35 people in the bar, as well as an 80 seat brasserie.
The owners say renovation has enhanced and retained original features including existing fireplaces.
The 1950s style windows have been replaced with traditional frames to mirror the local architec- ture, whilst the terrace at the front of the building overlooking Gold Hill Common has been renovated to provide space for 100 patrons, for outdoor drinking and dining.
The food is traditional English, with some classic French dishes, so you can eat a dry-aged Cornish steak or Sunday roast while your companion enjoys a cheddar cheese soufflé or a slowcooked beef Bourgignon. Kids need not miss out, with their own dedicated Henri le Worm menu as well as the option of having half portions of á la carte dishes.
Alongside premium cocktails and wines, including it’s own Blanc de Blanc, the Jolly Farmer will serve draught beers and bitters, alongside a selection of guest beers from local breweries.
CEO of Brasserie Bar Co, Mark Derry said: “We are delighted to have added The Jolly Farmer to our portfolio of pubs.
“This beautiful pub sits at the heart of Chalfont’s community, and we look forward to welcoming guests to enjoy quality food and drink in a relaxing and welcoming environment”.
