Went there last week food was of a poor standard. Had the beer battered cod this was not freshly cooked not in beer batter possibly came from a frozen section in a supermarket. Chips were also not nice. Need to up their game if they wish to compete with the Queens Head. Would not recommend.

We visited Maldon, Essex predominantly for a walk around and went to the quayside. We required lunch and stopped at the Jolly Sailor and can recommend their lunch menu especially for fish dishes. We all had Scampi and thoroughly enjoyed it with a bottle of wine.

Staff friendly AND smiled. Can,t guarantee any transformation but... More

My friends and I decided to have our lunch at The Jolly Sailor as it is in a good location with the Promenade just a few steps away. There are two pubs close to one another and both have a similar menu. We chose The Jolly Sailor as there was more space on the tables outside. Some of us chose... More

Stopped for one night. Room was clean and bright. Only problem was the water works, each time you flushed the toilet or ran the tap plumbing was noisy. The breakfast was lovely and dining area very nice. Landlady was very obliging and friendly along with her staff. The view from the window is was very pleasing. Must say that as... More

We were hoping for a birthday lunch overlooking the river. We chose this pub for its location and the menu - it offered a seafood platter with whitebait, oysters, crab and smoked salmon. Lovely. Being England, the tide was out and it was raining! So we got a table inside. Although the staff were helpful, putting tables together to seat... More

This was a last minute booking for b&b. Our room overlooked the quay. Very helpful staff who locked our bikes away overnight. Enjoyed a 'catch of the day' for supper and a full English in the morning. Tastefully decorated maintaining original features and a nautical theme.

We took a spur of the moment trip to Maldon and the promenade, we hoped to get something to eat and were so pleased with the meal at the Jolly Sailor. Great food, very accommodating for kids and lovely staff. It's a bit of a squash inside, but adds to the atmosphere!
