Between the cities of Bath and Bristol, the village of Saltford has a lot to offer. That’s thanks in part to The Jolly Sailor, a classic British pub and restaurant serving up a range of comfort food classics, tasty cocktails and an array of quality ales. Situated inside of an historic inn built in 1726, The Jolly Sailor is a preserved piece of the past, and you’ll feel just as if you’ve stepped back in time when enjoying a meal or a pint at this great restaurant. Best of all, The Jolly Sailor boasts a lovely beer garden out back with views overlooking the Lock and the River Avon, perfect for warm summer days. The Jolly Sailor is also a fine choice during the winter months, with two cosy fireplaces and comforting cuisine making it easy to forget the gloomy cold weather. Known to get busy, it’s never a bad idea to book ahead before stopping in to The Jolly Sailor down Mead Lane.
Excellent, friendly service. Food was high quality, and the servings were very generous. The menu was OK, with a bit of an emphasis on south Asian flavours and dishes. We will certainly be returning, but if the weather is nice, particularly at weekends, you will be wise to book.
Best Sunday roast for a very long time. Very attentive staff with fantastic service. Reasonable prices and a varied menu definitely worth going and we’ll definitely go back
Very good service and food was great lovely people would go there again and this site to book on here took 2mins and it was done very easy
Good choice of food. Excellent service. Food quality was great. Would definitely return. Next time we would like to return and sit outside enjoying the views.
On a Sunday waited an 1 he 25 mins for a roast dinner. However the food was really good it was such a shame about the wait. We also wanted desert and was advised they would get it out ASAP however it was again another hour wait for a desert which was a cheesecake and the cream that came with it was squirty. This was a disappointment to. As for the place itself , it’s a lovely location , outside was nicer than inside . The owners were very disoriginised and after booking a table we ended up finding ourselves a table as they were not interestedly in helping. During in the time there I heard at least 3 tables asking where there food was after waiting over an hour, along with refunds. I also experienced a lot of people who had prebooked in advance to find there was no table for them. The place has the potential but it’s curently a shambles. Hats off to the chef tho, the food was really good
I booked online for Sunday lunch for four and we were not expected. The place was very busy and staff had not checked the online bookings. Luckily there was an empty table in the bar, so we sat there and waited for a table. In the end, we ordered a drink while we were waiting and finally we were brought cutlery and served in the bar. When the food eventually came, it was delicious.
We had a beautiful roast and lovely starter on Mother’s Day. It was great. We pre ordered as mother’s day is busy and the web site aloud this. So it arrived promptly and hot even when the pub was really busy. Thank you!
Lovely food (steak and fish pies were brimming with meat and flavour) served all day in a really nice pub with incredibly friendly staff and fabulous views. What more could you want?
Food was served on a cold plate. The four small bits of carrot, two tiny sprigs of cauliflower and 2 small florets of brocolli placed in a circle around the veggie wellington were nearly cold. Wellington must have been microwaved as was served too quickly to be heated in conventional oven. Pastry soggy too. Poor value at £10.99. Complained about cold plate - proprieter said sorry. An offer of a goodwill free hot drink would have been nice but just 20% voucher off next meal given. Not inclined to try again!
Good food, very pleasant staff made you feel welcome. Was seated in the conservatory which had a lovely view, but was extremely cold. Hence why i have rated it a 5 and not a 6
