Reviewed July 4, 2013

Pretty pub in a nice location offering a good menu of home-cooked food with friendly service. I recommend this Pub/Restaurant to the local community as well as visitors.

“Great food and dog friendly”

We enjoyed some lovely home cooked food on a Friday night, and was welcomed by staff and regulars with our dog. Highly recommend!

“Hot pie, quaint place”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

If you want a classic Welsh experience, get down to the Jolly Sailor. Don't bother with the restaurant side, just grab a table in the pub. Hot pie, cold cider...nothings better. Go big or go home so spring for the chips. Dip those guys in the pie and you're set.

“A great find!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

After a few disappointing meals in the porthcawl area we were desperate to try and have at least one decent meal out whilst staying at a local caravan park and luckily we found it at the jolly sailor... great pub food, in a lovely refurbished rustic/beach style relaxed restaurant, warm atmosphere and friendly chatty staff & landlord, perfect...not a huge selection to choose from but enough to tempt you with, my husband and I both had the homemade pies - myself the chicken and ham and my husband the steak pie both delicious, definitely home made and came out with a tasty jug of gravy, delicious proper home made chips and a big pile of fresh vegetables perfect pub food piping hot and tasty, although they didn't have a childs menu as such they did everything they could to accommodate our 2 year old and she had a whopping plate of freshly battered fish, chips and peas and I can verify for her as well that it was extremely tasty and all freshly cooked. Would definitely go back if we happen to be in the area again.
