Description: The Jolly Coachman is an English Tudor style pub, well known for its great food and its atmosphere. Marilyn Sanders bought The Jolly Coachman on Ford Road eight years ago and has since dedicated her time to creating a menu that offers selection and quality. “I hang my hat on the food,” she says. “You can go anywhere for a beer. You can’t go anywhere for a great meal at a great price.”The menu boasts a mix between traditional pub fare and gourmet entrees featuring beef, chicken and seafood. There is a different food special every day of the week, including Prime Rib Fridays and New York Steak on the weekend. “I only buy the best beef, and the best produce and the best seafood that money can buy,” Sanders says. “I don’t cheap out on anything.” The Jolly Coachman also offers nightly drink specials. Customers can sip on a wide selection of local and imported drafts, bottled beers, wines, coolers and cocktails.The Jolly Coachman has undergone many changes since Sanders became owner including a new kitchen, bar, patio, and washrooms.“I’ve just about changed everything,” she says. However, throughout the renovations Sanders has maintained the pub’s cozy atmosphere.The interior still features exposed red brick walls, a large fireplace, wooden tables and street-lamp lighting fixtures.”It’s sort of your living room away from home,” says Sanders.“It’s just truly a neighbourhood pub where everyone knows everybody. It’s kind of like Cheers used to be.”Sports fans can watch every pay-per-view hockey game and UFC fight on one of the 34 flatscreen TVs in the pub.The Jolly Coachman also organizes bus trips to games in Vancouver. While sipping on an ice-cold pint, customers can try their luck at the gaming centre. The Jolly Coachman carries all B.C. Lottery products including 6-49, Super 7, Keno, Scratch & Win, and pull tabs, as well as Lotto Max and Knock Out 21.The pub opens every day for breakfast at 11 a.m. and closes at midnight Sunday through Thursday, and 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. Whether visiting for drinks or a meal customers will always find exceptional service, value and food at The Jolly Coachman.

I've been going to the Jolly Coachman for about 5 years now and the food and service has been exceptional. Every day there are great specials and if you don't like them the menu items are quite varied. The Friday lunch buffet is always great and if you like your roast beef, be aware of the horseradish that while extremely tasty, can be a bit on the spicy side!!

We've been going to "The Coachman" for years as our favourite go to pub. The staff is dynamite. Don't miss out on their all you can eat pasta Wednesday nights. Everything on the menu is cooked fresh and great value. Highly recommended!

I have been here many, many times and have always loved it. I'm not alone; the place is always packed. 10 cent wings on Thursday; 4.99 bacon and eggs breakfast on weekends; full rack of ribs some nights for $15. The choices are endless. The only stipulation is that you buy a drink.
The place is usually noisy, but a happy atmosphere.
Live bands and tribute singers some nights with NO cover charge.
I shouldn't be writing a good review because now I'll NEVER get a seat.
Try the patio.

Deco/atmosphere is very old and indeed of an update. Food is a hit and miss (mainly a miss). Sometimes they have private parties or bands and its impossible to hear yourself think let alone talk/hear your bar companions. Had to leave. Few times because of this. The Sunday buffet is gross and greasy. Would never try it again

Food is okay, few dishes quite good (as fish chowder). I find it too noisy to watch games in, often crowded to point where you are knocked about a bit, I have gone there a lot in 10 years, and attended many events there. It's a good local. Wish these pubs would pay attention to women's needs a bit more! Why don't they do a big "Academy Awards" Night or other things, I love hockey, but would also like some other stuff!
