The Jolly Farmer is an award winning traditional village pub located in the beautiful countryside of Cookham Dean. 

This historic pub dates back to 1788 and many of its original features are still in place.  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 come and have a Jolly time, even the dog.
