The fishcakes were mostly made of potato and came with a salad garnish that could have done with some oil and vinegar. But the view over the sea made up for the average food. Good place to stop if you are walking in the area around lunch time.

Booked a table for our visit to Craster at the weekend. Not first time in pub but first time for evening meal here. Absolutely fabulous meal. Loads of choice from menu, we had mains and sweet course. Beautifully cooked. Friendly service, great surroundings and ambience. If you are there in daylight hours there are wonderful views of the sea and... More

Fell upon the pub while wandering, noticed the welcomed dogs so went in. Pub is really smart yet homely, staff are very friendly, we decided to eat, our four meals were delicious. We noticed a French night the next night so we booked a table for then too. Again dog was welcome, had Beaujolaise Nouveau and a French menu. Wine... More

This is an ideal stop off after a blustery walk along the seafront to Dubstaburgh. Epic fish and chips, the homemade tartar sauce really made it for me. Just a lovely, warm and friendly pub with top notch sea food. Highly recommend this place :)

First time we had dined at The Jolly since it's refurbishment. What an improvement. Lovely premises, excellent service and fabulous food. Tried the Dover Sole with crab crust from the daily specials. Exquisite. Others in party had lamb and salmon wellington. All delicious. Deserts melted in the mouth. If you're expecting cheap basic pub grub as in days of old... More

Recently visited this pub with family for a birthday weekend. Found the staff very friendly, the food excellent with lots to choose from to suit everyone and when we did have a problem at Sunday Lunch with the soup not being hot enough it was removed and quickly replaced. The atmosphere is of typical country pub, roaring fires, cosy tables... More

Been into the jolly fisherman three times this week. Great welcome each time. Good election of beer. Has been refurbished very nicely. Have eaten in here tonight. What an excellent food experience. The salmon and brown shrimp wellington was superb. An excellent menu. Highly recommended.

Having read several reviews we were looking forward to visiting the jolly fisherman, after a long walk in the wind and rain we originally went to the cafe opposite while it opened. We ordered a few drinks and sat near a roaring fire. When the food arrived it was really nice, but the waitress who brought it to us was... More

Oh I so wanted to like this place. It had been highly recommended by our accommodation and was in a beautiful part of the world at the end of a long walk on a cold day. How disappointed were we! To start with we arrived and had to ask three different members of staff, over a period of 15 minutes,... More

What a welcome sight after taking in the round trip coastal walk up to Low Newton By The Sea! The atmosphere makes you want to settle in by the fire and enjoy good drinks with great friends. Free wifi is nice too; sit in the room behind the main bar for the best reception.
