About the Pub

At the junction of the A30, A325, and the Maultway now stands the American Golf shop which previously had been the Mongolian BBQ and, as some of will remember, the Jolly Farmer pub, which closed in 1996.

Historic Interest

Origins of the Jolly Farmer name date to the late 17th century when there was a highwayman called William Davies who worked on Bagshot Heath and allegedly only took gold from his victims. His identity was discovered since he was a local farmer who only paid his taxes in gold. A picture of him was painted and hung in the Golden Farmer pub along the London Road. One day however it was remarked that the golden farmer looked more jolly than golden, so the pub changed its name and was henceforth known as the Jolly Farmer. Davies is said to have been hung at the adjacent hill now called Gibbet Lane. (Wikipedia)
