We thought we would try this pub because of the nice location but ended up being disappointed. We ordered our food and had to wait an hour and a half for burgers. The food was only average and not worth the wait. The pub had a few drinkers but not many people appeared to be ordering food. Also have to... More

We visited deliberately while the All Blacks were playing rugby and the pub was well set up for that with several TVs giving good sight lines. The place was packed with a great atmosphere but despite this we found the service to be fast and attentive. We ordered the blue cod, the flintstone and the ribeye steaks all of which... More

A large group of motorbikers called in and arrived at the same time as another group. Ordered our meals and despite the crowds, meals were fairly quickly delivered. the one negative is using young untrained staff. May cost the business less in wages, but you lose out in service quality.

Been here twice and twice I ordered the same dish as I really enjoyed it. Beautiful nice fried tender chicken crisps with two choices of dipping sauces. A sweet and sour or a mango one.

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.
