Been going to this pub last few months and have had constant good food and service. Sunday roast is lovely and beer battered cod was delicious. Nice area outside looking over the quay when sunny. never stayed so cant say about rooms but would recommend for anything else.

Went for a drink here and decided to have a meal,we ordered burger and chips,the meat was dry and tasteless and the chips were aneimic and to be honest was not worth £9.95.however the staff were really nice,good service and would visit for a drink but definitely not to eat.

We spent a wonderful week including the 2014 Whitsun bank holiday weekend at The Jolly Sailor, and what a great time. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and the food and drink we're super. It was our headquarters for a week of hiking, sailing on one of the Thames Barges, visiting family locally, and it couldn't have been better.... More

Family commitments meant a visit to Essex but also wanted a couple of nights away. Staff all friendly and accommodating. Good beer and decent breakfast. Front bedroom smallish but everything you need plus great view. Rear room much larger and baby slept well in travel cot. Food was plentiful but far from ideal for cardio issues! My problem not there's!... More

Spent a great day at Maldon promenade in the park playing games, and then later we had dinner at the Jolly Sailor - The food was absolutely lovely and portions... More

Went with husband for early New Year's Eve drink and there were already many groups chatting creating a very warm atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, such a Maldon welcome. Have been many times before including Mothers Day lunch and never disappointed

Had a lovely meal here recently - great tasting food and more than generous portions. Prawn cocktail to start was four times the size of a typical pub starter, and the homemade fish pie was very tasty. Prices are very reasonable - and even better using a Taste Card to get a 2for1 deal on each course! Very friendly staff,... More
