We arrived at Jolly Jacks without a booking. The restaurant was nearly full however the very polite staff found us a table. We were only going to stop for a quick meal. The menu however tempted us to stay for a lot longer. We had an appetiser followed by an excellent dish of smoked haddock for me. My wife had... More

Have now eaten here on numerous ocassions and always found a friendly welcome and great food. It is always busy but the staff go out of their way to accommodate you even if you haven't booked in advance. In addition to the main menu (fish and chips and on Sunday's roast beef dinner highly recc!) there are daily specials and... More

Beautiful evening for my first ever visit at this establishment which did not disappoint. Came with friends with a table inside pre-booked but asked to sit outside with drinks until the food was ready. Staff very friendly and accommodating, nothing seemed too much trouble for them. We sat out in the sunshine, sipped cold drinks, looked at the menu and... More

Tried Jolly's for the first time for a family birthday meal. There was 9 of us and we were given a table that gave us plenty of space, not all bunched up with no room to move. The food was well presented, cooked lovely and dishes all came out together. We had 3 courses and some aperitifs to share at... More

My husband and I have walked around the marina on many a sunny day, and came across this gem. We always said we would like to try it out, but due to very limited parking in the height of season gave it a miss. However, due to a really wintry day, we decided to try it out. We were extremely...

Absolutely love coming to Jolly Jacks, so friendly and accommodating. The food is superb, and has been on each and every visit. Varied menu, prepared in plain view, always so flavoursome and fresh. Lovely bar by evening without ever seeming rowdy or overwhelming and a lovely, chilled place to come and grab a quick refreshment by day if you're not... More

We called in for a quick drink, but this is the sort of place where you could happily kick off your shoes, order something off the Special's Board and enjoy! Great atmosphere & friendly staff. Next time...

The quality of the food was excellent, and the waitresses were very attentive. My only minor niggle relates to the thin blond woman serving behind the bar who was a bit abrupt in her manner, possibly because we hadn't booked. She gave us a table by the door, which wasn't that great either. Despite this, I would recommend as the... More

Thank you for your review and the feedback, we are sorry you were disappointed with the service, I'm sure it was a matter of being a little under pressure to find you somewhere to sit, the table by the door was probably the only one we had left at that time so please don't read anything in to it.
