The menu is limited but adequate. The food was basic but edible. Accompanying salad relied heavily on Iceberg lettuce. The staff serving table do their best. The restaurant lacks atmosphere and could do with an uplift.

We have just returned from lunch at the Jolly Sailor, the welcome was good but food very average and dissapointing, although there is a sign outside saying its a 'dog friendly pub' and having had dogs ourselves in the past didn't realise this would involve a dog being allowed in the main eating area inside and sitting on one of...

We had a very warm welcome when entering, shown to our room which was clean, our stay was via a wowcher voucher and thus the price was very good. The food was plentiful and English breakfast was nice. Just a couple of pointers when booking, there is no where to park your car, the toilet is a mulcher so rather... More

With this setting in Hythe Quay this pub should be a winner. It looks old from the outside, and boasts its history, but it has been horribly modernised. Two huge TV screens and relentlessly crappy pop music would have been enough to ruin it even more for us but the clincher was the beer. We tried a local ale and... More

Stayed on a Wowcher deal, great value for money, generous food portions, although due to a Groupon deal going on, they had sold out of a few favourites. The two staff on duty were lovely and very accommodating considering how busy they were. The room clean and spacious..The area very pretty..only downside was the lack of parking spaces...overall a very... More

Stopped by for quick lunch. Menu varied and portions big. I had their signature jolly burger consisting of two patties, fried egg, bacon and cheese. Meat a bit tough but tasty. Chips were great. Companions had cod and chips which was lovely. Other item tried was baked potatoes with shrimp cocktail. Plenty of juicy shrimp. Finished with a nice cold... More
