4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Stopped overnight in the only room available,right at top (10?). A big room ,warm and comfortable with a fourposter; just like being on honeymoon again! A little dated but very clean and it was nice to find bottled water in the room. No food served in evening but a jolly good full english breakfast. Access difficult as building was totally covered in scaffolding which was due to come down in a few days. Luckily another guest on a fishing trip was able to skilfully park my car at the rear otherwise stairs could have been a problem. Really helpful,friendly staff

Room Tip: get a lower room if you can to avoid taking luggage upstairs

What a treat we stayed for four nights in room 3, what a beautiful room.
The breakfast was without a doubt the best I have ever had in a B&B
you could select from a range of cereals, yogurts, fresh orange juice, a
full English breakfast with as much toast you can eat. I found the staff very friendly
with nothing to much trouble, we will be returning next year to celebrate our silver
wedding!

The Jolly Sailor is a wonderful quaint old English pub. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The locals are very welcoming and the room was lovely and comfortable and all round excellent value for money.

my stay at the Jolly Sailor was very underwhelming!
The room on the top floor (3) smelled of damp, the toilet/bathroom smelled of pee. (Who on earth would carpet a toilet?) The toilet seat was disgustingly badly cleaned! See photo! There is absolutely no excuse for it being this bad!

Expect an early morning call from the deliveries to the Spar shop opposite from about 6am!

The breakfast was average at its best, with undercooked bacon and re-heated baked beans on the second morning.
The barmaid spent most of the time smoking outside or texting on her phone.
I was wondering why we were the only guests staying. When I look at what we spent to stay and what else was on offer locally, I can see why.
It might look like a quaint traditional pub, but I wouldn't stay here again in its current unclean state!

Stayed for two nights whilst touring the area & was so looking forward to staying in a old inn.
We stayed in room 3 upon entry it smelt of damp. I am aware it is a very old building however it did feel very damp.

The bathroom had a strong aroma of urine, this was possible due to having a carpet, which in my opinion is not ideal in a bathroom .
My partner lifted the toilet seat & underneath there was urine stains I was not made aware of this until the end of our visit .

We were told upon booking that our room had the best views however there is scaffolding & netting all around so no view was available. Upon us arriving we were informed that the brewery had started working on the outside, I understand work needs to be carried out but I feel it would have been nice to have been informed prior our arrival .
If you are looking to stay & expect it to be quiet in the mornings then this is not the place to stay as we were woken early by various banging noises which sounded like barrels being rolled.
The bed was very comfy & people in the inn at night were friendly.
However due the lack of cleanliness I will not be returning .
