Good Pub, Good Food, Good Location, Good Staff,

The pub has an excellent garden area with views of sunset over the river, wildlife, river traffic, and plenty more to watch, the kids play area is well roped off and visible by parents watching the kids. There is an aviary with parrots etc for added entertainment. All well kept and right on the... read more

Came here for early lunch on a weekday and got a lovely window seat with a great view of the estuary. Lucky, as the pub soon filled up! Menu was good with something for everyone- better than average pub grub. I had crab and prawn bake in a white sauce, and it was a decent portion. Welcoming staff and the... More

Being local to the area, the Jolly is always our first choice if we decide to have a meal out. The inside is quite dated and dark, typical 'pub-like' feel. But the outside seating is stunning, with a great view over the harbour. There's a lovely play park for the kids and you are able to walk down onto the... More

My partner and I visited here on a Friday night whilst on a long weekend in Pembrokeshire. It is in a beautiful location on the bank of the estuary with amazing views! I recommend you phone ahead to book a table as this is a very popular restaurant and fills up quite quickly! Very welcoming and obliging staff on arrival.... More

We live in Leicester approx 240 miles from The Jolly Sailor in Burton, but we still class it as our local !! We don't eat out very often but when in Pembrokeshire we visit the "JS" as many evenings as we can. The view from the conservatory is just spectacular. The food is wonderfully cooked with fresh ingredients and so... More

Had three average meals and the fourth was quite poor. Burger was so dry and of poor quality it couldn't be finished. Each of has tried a pudding, not the best presentation, don't think they were homemade. Service average, some waiting staff friendly than others. We won't be rushing back soon.

A lovely pub in a pretty setting with a good range of drinks and food, served by friendly local people. Food comes in generous portions with smaller servings as an option if preferred. Great value for money and well worth a visit!
