About The Jolly Sailor

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.

Food very good staff very friendly and helpful would recommend this venue for any family event. River side an added bonus made our visit for my husbands 70th birthday a great success with the bonus of the fabulous weather.

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
