Jolly Nice is a farm shop in Frampton Mansell between Stroud and Cirencester on the A419. This is a former petrol station that they converted into a hotchpotch of wooden buildings that are shops making up the farm shop and cafe.
They have a field out the back called the picnic meadow where you can eat out admiring the Cotswold views and livestock in a neighbouring field.
Jolly Nice has a Farm Shop, Butchery & Cafe, which you can eat inside with seating in heated yurts or their pretty meadow, all of which are dog friendly for dogs on leads.

My visit was a flying visit on the way to a meeting in Cirencester. And I fancied a bite to eat on the way, a family member had mentioned Jolly Nice. I opted for one of their free-range roast chicken and tarragon sandwiches. It was a blue sky day and opted to eat in the picnic area rather than in one of their yurts.
Shopping was not on the cards this visit, but had a look around. Their selection of local foods impressed me. If I was travelling home, I would have loaded up with some game, vegetables, and possibly too much from their larder. This is the sort of place a foodie like me describes as foodie heaven.
