Description: This is a large moorland Country Pub that offers dining in the pub or in the restaurant. Excellent menu and wine list, warm and friendly welcome. Four of us ate 3 delicious courses here on a midweek evening 2 bottles of wine and beer £130 staggering value for money as the food was both delicious and well presented....a very pleasant suprise indeed and deserving to be represented on TripAdvisor.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I feel i must comment on David S review of what took place on 30-10-12. I am a frequent visitor with friends to the Jolly Sailor and could not help but hear the abuse that he not the staff was dishing out on this evening. It was a very busy night the place was about full of customers
which tells how good the food is.And yes people were having to wait for meals,we waited about 1 hour and as usual it was worth it,the food is always fresh cooked and fresh produce and proper chips.We have always found the staff to be polite and friendly or we would not keep going back.David s did leave without paying his bar tab and a female
customer went outside and told him she would record his reg number,
his female companion got him to come back and pay which he did and then give more abuse to the staff before leaving.I can understand his dissapointment but his reactions against the staff who were not to blame was out of order.Bad attitude.

“Nice Sunday Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We have visited here a few times on the way home from weekends in Whitby, they do nice food and a lovely sunday lunch. Also a nice little play area outside for the children. In a nice little spot just off the main road.

“DISGRACEFULL”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

my partner and myself booked a table at the jolly sailor moorsholm for 7:30 pm on 30-10-2012 we arrived at 7:20 and ordered drinks and the bar maid said are these to be added to a bill we said yes and she replied ill show you to your table and take your meal order shortly.

after waiting for 40 minutes with no one taken our order yet i return to the bar for another drink and politely asked if we could make our order to which we were hit with we are not taking orders for another 45 minutes!!!!!! i explained that we had already been sat waiting for 40 minutes she then replied theres nothing i can do.
I spoke to my partner and explained what the bar maid had said so we both decided that not only were we leaving but we were not paying for the two drinks we had because we had booked a table for 7:30 thinking we would be eating by around 8oclock ...
what happened next is a disgrace, the waitress came over and said its not our fault i could speak to the chef for you,but the evening had already been ruined,as we were leaving a lady( well i say lady .....(make your own mind up when i explain what happened) came to take our registration as we were refusing to pay for our two drinks due to lack of courtesy
My partner told me to pay for drinks to which i did un happily but paid all the same we then proceeded with this so called lady saying that if we had gone without paying then the girl behind the bar would of had to pay...........WHY SHOULD THIS BOTHER US WHEN WE HAVE LOST WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SPECIAL NIGHT .......this all got very heated in the middle of the pub we were then called scruffy c##ts by this so called lady and proceeded to call my partner a slag and chasing us out into the car park.......THIS PUB IS A DISGRACE THE STAFF ARE UNDEDUCATED FOUL MOUTHED TWO BIT PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO MANNERS ARE CONSIDERATION FOR CUSTOMERS........I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU NEVER GO TO THIS SO CALLED WELCOMING AND FRIENDLY RESTERAUNT

“Fabulous food & hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We holiday in this area every year & love to come here for the fantastic food & friendliness.
Sharon & Mark give 100% commitment, there is so much to choose, sandwiches which come with home-made chips, & a gorgeous salad, lunch & tea-time specials, a specials board, steaks, the list goes on, & the portions are also very generous.
So if you like good food, plan a visit to The Jolly Sailor, book before you go though to avoid disappointment of having to wait for a table, as this pub is busy, you certailnly wont be disappointed.
