Unable to rate as they informed us on arrival that they were not serving food, despite having a booking and them having our phone number we were not informed. We’d walked 30 mins and planned the table around our lil ones eating. So not a great experience.

First experience of dinning out for Christmas dinner, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was amazing and plenty of it, service was great , It wasn’t rushed giving a chance to digest everything and relax. The staff were pleasant and helpful. There was only one thing that we felt could have been better, it was the heating, it was very cold and people were dinning with coats on. If the place was warmer it would have been wonderful.

Although a very busy bank holiday Monday, everything was well-managed from the customer perspective. Lots of staff and we were very impressed at the speed that our food was delivered, given how busy the pub was. We were seated outside and I had asked on the webform for a seat with a backrest for my elderly mother. With no fuss the waitress immediately brought out a comfortable chair. We were all happy with the experience. It's been a very tough year for hospitality but you absolutely rose to the challenge - Well done! :-)

Everything was ok. Just a shame we had to return are pudding as it had a hair actually in the sticky toffee pudding, wanted quiche but wasn’t told it wasn’t In stock till I asked if it came cold or hot and told they weren’t serving hot drinks but they were making hot drinks at the time, Other then that the platters were lovely and perfect value of money and a lovely Scenery, I will be back again

I could not fault my whole experience at the jolly sailor under the circumstances of social distancing, it was really busy and food was coming to the tables 30-45 minutes late but it wasn’t a problem as we all knew the pressure the staff were under. The staff could not of been more accommodating and apologetic to us, the food was amazing and I will be definitely coming back again soon to enjoy this lovely pub once again

Was nervous about visiting due to previous posts absolutely nothing to worry about. We were bought a voucher for Xmas decided at the start of lockdown easing to use it to celebrate our wedding anniversary which happened to be a Wednesday was able to use it during eat out to help out. There was a very good menu selection customer service was excellent owner came over and spoke to us personally. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend.

I can't comment upon the food as the three of us only drank and had crisps but it was a really nice gesture to give me a birthday G & T; most grateful. Love the Jolly's setting and is fantastic on a sunny day/evening. Unfortunately for me, the sun never shines on my birthday (in the middle of July) and so it bucketed it down - although we were nice and dry under the large umbrella that covered the table.

The food was good - some was superb. Absolutely mouthwatering. The food took a long time to come but this was fully consistent with its freshly prepared state and it a absolutely worth waiting for. We weren't in a hurry and were aware that it would be like this. someone nipping in for a quick meal in a work lunch hour might get caught out though. Maybe customers could be given an indicative waiting time - maybe they are already (the pub knew we weren't in a hurry). The beer (draught 6X) was a bit odd - perhaps not being kept very well, or too long. It as fully drinkable, but a purist might have objected. It could be worth thinking whether improvements could be made. Staffing seemed thin but we understand the pub is under changed management and may need time to ramp up staffing. We were surprised to see the remains of previous customers popcorn scattered about the windowsills and floor near our table. It didn't bother us, but some people ight be concerned. We have sense some very negative reviews on the internet from a few months back, before the change in management. If they are fair, then the pub has made great improvements in the last month or so - overall we really enjoyed it.

My friend was concerned that there wasn’t table service for ordering. Also told they weren’t serving coffee until lunch was over. Crazy as that was over an hour wait, complained and lady dealt with it very efficiently, bar staff hadn’t realised we had already eaten thought we just wanted coffee. Maybe question should have been asked to avoid the confusion.

We sat outside and it was lovely. Socially distanced queuing to order food and drinks at the bar, and one way entry/exit system. The staff were lovely. The only real issue we had was the toilets. The ladies’ smelled very bad and floors/cubicles were dirty. We were at the pub for 5-6 hours and don’t think the toilets were cleaned at all during that time. Not sure how covid safe that is.

With all the customers and the beautiful location a little bit of effort to produce food of decent quality would really do this place well. Unfortunately, the food is just frozen and deep fried. The sunday roasts looked bland.

The staff were very attentive and kindly gave my husband a free pint of beer, having picked up that it was his birthday. My chicken korma was lovely but there wasn’t any korma in it at all. It wasn’t just mild, I think the korma had been left out completely. However, it was melt in the mouth so I didn’t complain. One of our party had a coronation chicken jacket potato but was disappointed that the filling was cold. She wasn’t sure if that’s par for the course, so she didn’t say anything. One of our party asked for salt and sauce with her meal and was a bit frustrated that drinks orders and deliveries were concentrated on whilst she was still waiting and well through her meal before they came. The first two dessert choices were unavailable so we had to take third choice. That said, we did have a lovely time and were allowed to move our tables around to suit us. I appreciate that the restaurant is newly re-opened so it’s early days for the busy staff to get used to everything. We were asked a few times if everything was good and we said yes because overall everything was great. This review is nit picking but you did ask!

Lovely location, food and service. We went on a rainy week day though - given the location it will be alot better on a sunny day.

Really nice visit we went for a lunch time treat. Only thing I would say is please warm the plates for the hot food. It is a simple thing but takes the standard up a level. Hot food should come on warm/ hot plates., But we did really enjoy our meal. But we would have gave 8/9.

We hadn't been to the Jolly Sailor for a few years, and felt the service had really gone down hill. We weren't greeted when we went to the bar, (there were 2 staff members behind the bar) just waited even tho there were no other customers waiting, even an 'I'll be with you in a minute' would have helped. The girl who served us was extremely young so maybe her customer service skills haven't developed yet. She did lager shandys, when we had asked for beer shandys. We ate our meal-food very good- and left. Didn't feel valued as customers and won't be returning.

Stunning setting & I am a returning customer but disappointed that despite having a wonderful selection of curry's they had no rice so given chips as alternative. Food super delicious but then went to order desert & advised chef had gone home. We were rather disappointed as it was only 8.15 & they were shutting in 5 mins & had gone out with friends. I was Unaware of this early closure on a wednesday. But the owner was very friendly & attentive during our visit & the food so good we will go back but check definitely opening hours next time.

We went for lunch on Friday, turned up and had to wait to tell someone we had booked a table. We were told they were missing a few things from the menu, which was fine we ordered and food was very nice. We had scampi and steak & ale pie. More and more people came in and were told what was missing from the menu, it actually got so bad it was easier to say what they did have rather than what they didn’t! We felt sorry for the 2 girls behind the bar as it just felt they were having to take the brunt for the lack of food available. We were lucky to order when we did. Overall it was a nice experience.

Servers seemed a little clueless and menus/tables felt sticky and hadn't been cleaned. It wasn't busy so no excuse, the staff were just standing around chatting to each other. The food was good and generous portions. Lovely location

Food: olives didn't look very appetising (small and dry- looking) and then surprised to find they were hot. Why? Not as expected - I.e. plump and juicy and room temperature. Rest of food good. Service ok but not great. Asked to pay when ordering but no explanation as to why, and because it was paid, we were never asked if we'd like more drinks or dessert - not the best for your sales opportunities. It generally felt it had gone down hill since I was there last

Took a while to be seated and then we were sat at the table for a while waiting for someone to take our order. In the end I had to get up and walk towards the waitress to let her know that we were ready to order. Food came out quite quickly after that but not even halfway through eating my meal the waitress came up to our table and asked us to pay whilst eating which was rude and unnecessary. Other people around us were waiting a while to pay for their order after eating so it was strange that we were singled out and made to pay before we had even finished. Everything else was perfect and I would definitely visit again.

Beautiful location overlooking the lock. A very special view Food was sadly disappointing and over priced. A choice of dining table would be good Picnic Benches not ideal for the elderly or pregnant ladies. We saw 2 people leave because of this

Eating at an outside table on a cold day is never so good as an inside one, but that’s Covid! The food and drinks were what we expected and service, given the circumstances , was prompt and there was probably a smile behind the mask. Had to ask for a another black coffee as it was not up to scratch but the replacement was brought out immediately and with an apology.

My meal was very good; my husband’s meal mediocre. We had to wait a very long time between first & second course. My husband described the pub as “Tatty”; could do with some TLC especially ladies loo which was not very clean.

Making a table reservation online was straight forward. On arrival we were told to pick any table. After sitting at our table for a while with our drinks we were asked to move due to another reservation. We moved to a table in a nice location by the river but it was sticky and covered in ants. Cigarette butts littered the paving. The food arrived in good time and was splendid. All in all in a mixed bag but prompt service, nice location and very good food.

Overall experience good but rating pulled down by nanbread for my guest not cooked all way through plus the milk jug (for the coffee) was cracked and I pointed it out to our waitress who was very attentive. The service was efficient and spacing in the conservatory good.

Efficient social distancing and staff were wearing masks so that was reassuring. However, the state of the menus was tatty, didn't look as if they'd been changed since before Covid! Chicken Korma was nice though perhaps not so creamy as usual. Grandson said his burger was rather greasy. Excellent service including water for our dog. Good value for money.
