You see it's not all about the view at Jolly Jacks it's all rolled into one, our fantastic team out front, our equally fantastically talented chefs, our gorgeous interior with log burning stove which tables close by are fiercely fought over in the cooler months and our beautiful sun terrace surrounded by a stylish garden, lovingly kept by Sally (Sue...

jolly jacks offers something that's rare in the Plymouth area. Great staff, great food, great location. The staff make you feel like family, you feel at ease and well looked after, all are wearing smart uniforms which are relaxed. The food is outstanding, unique and a brilliant but concise selection. The views over Plymouths William yard makes you realise how... More

This lovely unassuming hideaway is a must for both locals and visitors to Plymouth! Sally and her amazing team are welcoming and are supported by their following of regulars. The fish and chips last night were even better than usual, huge portions perfectly cooked and presented beautifully! I had the smoked haddock, served with mustard mash,spinach and a perfectly poached... More

Great place to chill and relax with good food and service. In a strange location but nice. Chips great home cooked, fish finger sandwich a big thumbs up and the soup seemed from a never ending bowl. Really tasty! Even though temperatures outside were warm inside was still cool. Nice!

The mussels were fat a juicy with lovely sauce, I had crab mash and John Dory with freshly cooked Veg, delicious. Other friends had the vegetable lasagna as she is a vegi, and was raving about it.

Eaten here before and was good but tonight was really poor. Starters came out before mains and had to go back. Starter of scallops were good but the side dish with it was bitter like the sugar had been burnt. Main came out missing one of the main ingredients and had to be set back meaning I ate my meal...
