Fantastic home made food, friendly staff with a nice warm welcome
The food was delicious, served quickly and with a smile. Our group of 4 all enjoyed our food & would visit again!
Lovely food lovely staff made us very welcome will be going back
We had a great evening at The Jolly Sailor. The staff were courteous and polite, especially Nathan. I would definitely recommend it.
Staff friendly, service good didn't have to wait too long for our food. The food looked lovely unfortunately it didn't live up to expectation. 5 out the 6 of us had either roast beef or lamb. The roast potatoes and the meat had been cooked at least 1-2 days previously and reheated and the veg was over cooked. The vegeterian option tasted ok but was served in a soggy puff pastry case. The puddings tasted lovely but were not as suggested on the menu. The lemon torte was actually a lemon gateux. The ferrero Rocher cake was actually chocolate fudge cake with one ferrero rocher stuck on top, the same with malteser cheesecake, just a plain cheesecake with some maltesers stuck on top and the cream was from a can that went like water after a while on your plate. Over all quite disappointing.
Table was reserved as promised. Service was a bit hit and miss, appeared to have a high number of very young staff, conversation certainly wasn’t on the menu! Having said that the food which was obviously cooked fresh to order was really good. The homemade tomato soup was delicious. The Burgers were excellent and chunky. The Hunters Chicken went down well and the Lamb Madras was superb (although the naan bread was overdone) The setting is interesting with the river adjacent, I can imagine on a warm summers day that the whole place is jumping-certainly seemed plenty of tables outside. Worth another visit, price about average...just over £100 for lunch and drinks for 6?
A warm friendly welcome, first class service and absolutely delicious roast lunches. We had beef and lamb and both were great - plenty of tender, tasty meat with lovely gravy. Yummy roast spuds and veg, including cauliflower cheese. The puddings were delicious too. Pub is clean and well presented, with great views over the weir. Can't fault it - it was just right for a Mother's Day lunch. Thank you very much.
Came in for father's Day on Sunday. The staff were all lovely and very accommodating! The pub has a very cosy atmosphere and the staff made the experience that much more enjoyable for ourselves. Thanks everyone! The roasts were all delicious and were finished by all. The only down side was it was canned cream rather than pouring for dessert 😋. Cheers Jolly Sailor! See you soon!
Four of us went for a lunchtime meal two had curry and two the game pie. All meals were excellent and it was nice to have an authentic Indian curry. Service was very good and we were well looked after. We will definitely be going again and despite the thunder storm at the time the view across the weir was a lovely backdrop.
Lovely Sunday lunch with friends. Even though there was snow on the ground the place was packed and the staff were rushed off their feet as a result Food was excellent and the service good. Shame they never got round to lighting the fire as they were so busy we needed it as people coming in from the garden were obviously born in barns as they never shut the door behind them. Will come again.
