Very good food and service. Waiter was very attentive and friendly. Price was not too bad either. Would recommend for family celebrations and get together with frinds.
Great service and food - this is consistently the best pub burger by miles. Nice to have separate dining room just behind main pub area.
we had a really fantastic night, really funny attentive staff who engaged with us and made it a really great night! would definitely go again.
Marvellous Sunday lunch. Great service and fab food. Staff happy to make reasonable alterations to the menu. Also a wide range of veggie options. Highly recommend!
The Jolly Gardeners is a great pub - our local in Earlsfield. This was the first time we've eaten there and I couldn't recommend it highly enough - it's a different class from even some of the best 'pub food' in the area - this is proper, fresh ingredients, unique recipes, beautifully presented and not overloaded with carbs. They even managed to cater for my vegan sister. The service is always excellent - with staff always on hand to top up your drinks.
Overall great experience. Had to change my booking slightly when I needed to add more people to my table and found the staff very accommodating when ringing up the day before to arrange this. Service was very good when we were there and food was great. Only criticism was that with the roast chicken there was a bit too much stuffing and not enough chicken. Would, however highly recommend The Jolly Gardeners to other dinners.
Always met with very friendly and attentive service whenever eating at the Jolly Gardeners. The Food is usually very good too. I had the fish pie this time which was delicious. The wine list is a wee bit on the restrictive side but yielded a very nice Pinot Noir. The only negative thing about my visit last Saturday was a large birthday table making an ear piercing amount of noise. The back dining room at the JG is normally quite noisy and I don't usually mind but this lot ended up screaming at each other whilst playing a drinking game which did spoil the conversation at our table towards the end of the evening.
Excellent friendly & informative service & delicious food - my husband had the beef burger and l had the spicy chicken burger and we shared chips - coleslaw (made with red cabbage) - tomato salad - fennel salad. Could not have had a better lunch time experience on our 26th Wedding Anniversary! Surprised Pub was not very busy on a Thursday lunchtime. Pub was recommended to us by family members. Will go again.
We both had ravioli to start and the lamb. I don't think I've ever tasted anything so delicious. both courses. but the lamb was the best lamb I've ever eaten. Awful to say, but driving past baby lambs over the weekend, It was all I could think about!!! Also a bottle of Prosecco, which was a very good price and wonderful....
Roast beef was great as always. The staff were very accommodating of the three children we had with us however I didn't think the options for the children were great. I had my two year old and ordered the chicken and chips. The chicken was very tough and fried. I am sure it would be fine for an older child but not great for the younger kids. Overall a great lunch though.
