Visited today for lunch and were firstly surprised by how busy it was (midweek lunch). We have visited before but felt that I wanted to leave a review today. The staff were very pleasant, there was some background music playing to a suitable level. I opted for tempura prawns on the specials board and my partner had the home made... More

We were recommended this place and will certainly come back in the spring when we can enjoy the views. The fire was cosy and the food was delicious.

Came here for a Sunday roast as carveries are just not our thing anymore as they're all like queuing up for school dinners and I enjoy the personal touch. Food was delicious although my only complaint was it got a bit warm in the restaurant. Maybe it was just me but we'll definitely be back. Thanks again.

Came here a few weeks ago with two of my friends, both of whom work within the restaurant industry, as do I. Jolly Jacks is a fine example of a tightly run restaurant. Very good service, lovely food / wine list and an overall inviting ambiance. One of Plymouth's best kept secrets and not remotely pretentious even though it could... More

The staff here are always friendly (we've been 5-6 times now) and welcome you with a smile. The decor is fresh and bright and the food is great quality. Generous portions and tasty. They always have a specials board as well as the main menu. In good weather they have an outside seating area which is sunny and good just... More

Jolly Jacks, waterfront bar and bistro is tucked inside the Mayflower Marina and is well worth a visit. We used the bar dining area for coffee but could see a nicely, decorated more formal dining area nearby. The bar was full and kept warm on a cold day by a centrally placed stove which was a nice feature. The staff... More

Visited Jolly Jacks yesterday evening with family. Were greeted with a friendly smiling member if staff and the rest of the evening were served with (I think), 3 other smiling & very professional members of the team. All our meals were delicious. Portions were a good size, (mine beat me & unfortunately I had to leave half of it), should... More

As always the food was excellent the view not so good but you can't blame this awful weather on the restaurant but last summer in the sun it was even better having a drink in the sun with a lovely view over plymouth sound. The food and... More
