See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Busy village pub a popular haunt during WWII for Battle of Britain air crews in 1940. In 2021 the pub became part of the Dirty Pig eat-at-home business which is based in Margate. Breakfasts are available from 8pm but alcohol is not served util 10pm onwards.

Jolly Farmer is a corruption of the "Golden Farmer", the nickname of a wealthy Bagshot man called William Davis (1627-90), who allegedly accrued his riches as a footpad, not a farmer. His notoriety prompted many 18th century pubs to honour him in their name/sign.
