Recently had a two night stay here to celebrate a birthday and in general we were pleasantly surprised. Firstly the positives; the service was excellent all round without exception. The bar staff were helpful, the managers were polite and friendly, and we really couldn't fault them. The pub was friendly, cosy, and largely populated by locals which is usually a... More

My son and I, visited this pub, for the first time, Saturday 6 December, after meeting music-group Minor Quay earlier in the year . The purpose was to take part in the Open-Evening, with my guitar, and two songs, as a tribute to the start of 1st World War , 100 years ago. A super and lively response from all... More

I would totally recommend this fab place to anyone. A friendly old pub with a fantastic atmosphere. The rooms are spotless & comfortable. And a great breakfast included in the price. I will definitely be returning.

Visited here for a nice relaxing drink. Clearly a locals onky establishment. The barmaid was disinterested and unfriendly. She got my drink completely wrong but had no intention of changing it. She turned her back on us to chat to the few locals at the bar. We left and won't return.

Please accept my apologies for your bad experience. To avoid this happening again I would appreciate you advising me roughly when and what time of day you came into the pub so I can determine which member of staff was on duty and give her more customer service training. Kind regards Stuart More

I have visited the Jolly on a number of occasions and have always been served quickly and courteously. When I am in the area I always make sure I go there on a Tuesday and a Thursday for the Folk Night and the Shanty night (Sing along, they love it). Both nights are free and there is always a good...

This pub is a gem for people who like a proper boozer. Great range of ciders and ales and really friendly bar staff.
