“Food good and service better but a bit rowdy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The new Landlord of the Jolly Sailor must have worked hard to bring about the change in clientele at the Jolly Sailor. They serve good quality pub food at a reasonable price and the service is friendly and efficient.

On the downside, we went for Sunday lunch when a United match was being screened and it was all a bit noisy. The brewery also need to spend a few quid improving the interior of the pub which is looking very tired and in places quite grubby.

Still well worth a try.

“Fantastic - yet again! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

Visited the Jolly Sailor again for Mother's Day as we knew it wouldn't let us down. Attentive, helpful and friendly staff. We ordered two Sunday lunches which were both GORGEOUS. Amazing Yorkshire Pudding and Amazing beef. Well everything was brilliant. We've been several times and each time is just as good as the other. We are planning to visit this week with guests from out of the area. Best grub in Stockport.

We had to wait at least an hour just for the starters, we've been here 3 and a half hours so far. Average food, very disappointing
