BARRY TAYLOR left this review about The Jolly Farmer

Traveling up the B3046 from Alresford to avoid the rigors of the M3, I happened across this pub, only 2 miles away from Basingstoke (which I'm not fond off) and a really nice find. Cliddesden village was formerly served by Cliddesden railway station on the now defunct Basingstoke and Alton Light Railway. The station was used in the making of several films. In the 1937 film Oh, Mr Porter!, Cliddesden appeared as 'Buggleskelly'. You get to the Car park at the rear by a steep side entrance and walk down to the boozer via a nice brick path through a very large beer garden on a number of levels, where you're confronted by a large roof. Inside there's two separate bars and it's got a warm, welcoming, country ambience. 4 real ales on and I had a great pint of Harvey's at £3.40 (I'm used to paying that as I live on the Hamble). The menu looked good, but I just stuck with my pint. The bar staff seemed fine and the Landlord was pleased to hear that I appreciated his pint.
