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. Chips were crunchy on the outside and nice and soft on the inside. Nice sports atmosphere (there was a rugby game going on while we... More

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.

This establishment is actually "The Jolly Roger". On a sunny day it is pleasant to sit outside and watch the boats in the Marina. We are never quite sure what it is trying to achieve. 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
