What a pleasant change to be welcomed and served by two young staff. Esmay and Conner looked after the drinks and food order. Great service and real Ale. The Ale was well cared for and crystal clear. A great place to meet friends and dine. All the best to the Landlord and Lady.

Abigail R, Manager at Ye Old Jolly Sailor Public House, responded to this review

Thank you for taking time to write a review for us. We are conscious that the open fire is next to one of our TV sets and during Rugby/Football events this is not necessarily ideal - but due to the building being over 900 years old we do have some restrictions on the layout options. When there is not a... More

Had an evening meal here, the food was what I call Pub Grub not in my opinion anything more. It was tasty and well cooked. The wine list is OK but limited.

Popular with locals with a good selection of real ales and interesting specials - the main menu was a little boring. The trio of local crab is recommended, although a crab cracker to get the crab meat out of the claws would have been helpful. Jazz night when we visited (Monday) added atmosphere.

We have noted about the crackers and will ensure that we have these available when the dish is on the menu. We have recently updated our menu and try to keep our Specials board fresh and interesting.
