Having read a few reviews on this site about the Jolly Roger id like to add my input as a frequent visitor to the pub ' mainly for food'. Im not really sure what some people expect to get for around £12 to £14 but if you want really nice food at a reasonable price then the Jolly Roger is for you. The pub itself is located in a nice area and in the summer the views of the marina whilst having a nice cold pint makes for a good atmosphere. The bar area is always nice and lively with the staff always smiling and waiting to assist. As for the menu and food in general, let me put it in its simplest terms. After my first visit i went for a pint in my local The Queens Head and was raving about the meal i had just had with my partner. I had the Belly Pork (lush is an understatment) and she had Chicken with Chorizo which was that filling she could not finish it, so i duely obliged not because i was still hungry cause the belly pork did well and trully fill me up. I just didnt want to see good food go to waste. I stated to friends that if they wanted to treat there partner to a nice meal, to go to the Jolly as it was by far the best food served in the area. My advise is to look at the specials board as thats where you will get something different to your standards pub menu. There are plenty of draft Lagers and beers to choose from and at prices that you would expect to pay nowadays.
Iv read a few of the negative reviews on here about the Jolly Roger and if anybody has ever talked about the people who write really negative things about places are the people who expect perfection then i guess thats them. With a bit of luck we wont be seeing those people in the Jolly again because no doubt they are the type of moaning people that brings the atmosphere down in a nice place like this. Let them go and complain somewhere else cause no doubt they will.
Oh and for the record Florence01 iv had the Chicken pie and it was tasty and well worth the money and maybe if you had stopped moaning for five minutes you would of actually realised that the black bits inside the pie were in fact mushrooms cause i noticed it when i had it.
