A little treasure hidden away at Mayflower Marina. Recommended by H.M.S. Raleigh Navy Chef's School. Staff were very helpful and attentive. Our meals were excellent. The Smoked Haddock, Mustard Mash, Spinach with poached egg is a must. Reasonable priced wine list topped off a very good meal. Look at the sweet menu but you may not manage it as the... More

Fantastic service, great food and a lovely setting. Prices were pretty reasonable too. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I had the best steak I'd had in ages and the deserts were generous portions and beautifully presented. Well worth a visit.

We came in for a meal on Wednesday evening and had a great meal. We have visited jolly jacks numerous times and brought a couple of friends with us this evening. It was a very busy evening but it was nice to see the staff were still friendly and welcoming (as per!). There was a bit of a wait on... More

After reading the recent reviews, I thought I may have been in the Jolly Jacks Twilight Zone! I took my family here last night (23/07/14) and the food and service were both absolutely fantastic! I was recommended the locally sourced fish and chips by the friendly waitress. It's sad to think people put reviews on here when they obviously have... More

Felt I had to balance the books with the last 2 reviews. We are local and eat there often and have had consistently good food and good service. We also were there yesterday and yes the service was slow but as regulars we knew that they were having serious staff problems coinciding with an exceptionally busy evening. The quality of... More

Came down on a Saturday afternoon in the sun, perfect location as the garden is permantly in the sun. The view from the garden is also amazing as you can see the bobbing sailes of boats and the scenic landscape. We only came down for a couple drinks in the sun but ended up being enticed by the food that... More

Visited jolly jacks last month after being told about the place by some friends at work. Couldn't fault it.. Beautiful location and the fish and chips were fantastic. Outside seating is defiantly a bonus. Keep up good work.

Probably the worst risotto ever served in a restaurant anywhere, that coupled with a 50 min wait for a cheese board made for an awful meal. That's the 3rd time we have had poor food qnd bad service. Won't be going back any time soon.
