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”.
