Have now had the 3rd disappointing experience at this establishment, and will not be back. Not prepared to wait so long..for such yukky overpriced food, and a barman who would rather watch sport on TV than serve customers. The Spinnaker Restaurant upstairs is awesome, and well worth the few extra dollars.

I went to the Jolly Roger with my partner for dinner while we were spending a weekend in Picton. The steak was amazing and my partner enjoyed his blue cod. Beautiful location and friendly staff, would definitely return.

Went for a nice dinner at the Jolly Roger. It was great to sit out on the waterfront and have some fresh blue cod and a cheeky couples of wines.

It has "Pub food" which is of reasonable quality but really overpriced. This suggests that it isn't a restaurant. Unfortunately it confines its wines to... More

Had dinner here with the kids. Tasty fish&chips; not greasy, nice fish. Nachos were really good, pizza so, so. Bar ladies bark is worse than her bite. We even got a smile out of her ;-). If you want fancy food go next door to Spinnaker. But for pub grub it's a decent place.
