Chef/Patron Bruce Wass and his team of enthusiastic cooks offer fantastic, seasonal food, from lunchtime charcuterie plates & ploughmans with home made bread, to finely crafted dishes on the à la carte menu. The Jolly Sportsman provides a relaxed, friendly, professional meal experience. Fine cooking, not fine dining.

Easter Sunday, al fresco lunch, stylish, orofessional and delicious. Excellent, sensible wines, I would, however, prefer average Champagne to expensive English sparkler. We have never been disappointed with the Jolly Sportsman

Beautiful day and we were seated outside which was a joy in itself. Delicious scallops with a warm scallop mousse was well received by 3 of us, the other diner had oysters which he enjoyed. All four of us has Gurnard which was fresh and excellent. The treacle tart to follow was a triumph. Service was efficient and charming and very well organised we thought on a busy service. We haven't visited the Jolly for some time and it was lovely to be back - I can't think why we left it so long, particularly with the superb standard of food currently on offer. Thank you

This is a very special English country pub with well-kept real ales, adventurous but unpretentious food, idyllic garden and location and excellent service. Sorry, but we want it all for ourselves!

Great food and lovely to sit in the garden and enjoy the weather. Staff seemed under pressure and it took a long time to be served. Be prepared for a wait. One dish was not what we ordered but very good anyway!

My wife and I walked over the fields from Plumpton Green to have lunch on Good Friday. We were fortunate to have a table in the garden on what was a very pleasant late spring day. The service was friendly and charming and the food was first rate. Can't think why we don't go more often
