This was our first visit to Jolly Jacks. We went because we had heard good things about it so decided to go for lunch. We were made to feel immediately welcome and all the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The meal was good with the food being well presented, hot and tasty. The atmosphere is relaxed and we would... More

Unbearably noisy. Asked to be moved and this was done, helpfully and gracefully. So, for the Staff: very good. The atmosphere improved and a reasonable, if ordinary standard meal was served. The prices for this level of cooking were far too high. Sadly, the relative calm was again disturbed by a family with badly behaved and mobile children. It would... More

Very nice food with welcoming service. Nice to sit outside in the summer. Quite pricey but worth it.

A regular recommendation of mine but sadly some thing has changed. The last few times I have visited have been a bit disappointing. The service and staff are still amazingly fantastic but some thing is different in the kitchen, it might be a temporary blip but needs to be addressed

Jolly Jacks is somewhere you have to hunt down if you are not a Local or maybe even if you are from the Area?. It's a little off the beaten track, situated in the Marina, but once you get there it's a dream. The Welcome from the Hosts is second to none and the Staff are very informative and helpful.... More

Came here for lunch one Saturday in March. Had such a warm welcome from one of the owners I believe, once seated and drinks orders taken, we were handed the menu and then read the specials board by the lady who seated us. Very friendly atmosphere, have recommended this place to everyone I speak to! The food was delicious, best... More
