“Employ a cleaner”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

The "Jollies" is very close to us and we use it quite regularly both at lunchtimes and evenings. When we have friends and family come to visit, we have booked a large table for us all on several occasions throughout the past year. The food is good, reasonably priced and they offer a great selection. The staff (Olive, Amanda, Laura and Chel) are all very friendly and try very hard to make sure we have an enjoyable lunch or dinner.

My only complaint lately is the cleaning schedule being put upon the staff during trading hours. Very off-putting and completely unnecessary. When you work in the hospitality industry that's what should be, not constantly cleaning.

“Jolly salors”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We always had a good meal in here. It was always packed. It had a large selection of food on the menu which always seems to include local fish.

“Wow!!!!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Took friends for a meal there, we had a range of meals including options vegetarian and Greek menu. Food was fantastically cooked portions were quite big. Drinks were brought to us quickly and staff were very helpful and polite. Even kept the children entertained with colouring paper and crayons. The place was clean and tidy..... Really couldn't find a fault with the jolly sailors. Can't wait to go back!!
