We say

Once a tired old pub, the new owner of the Jolly Sailors has livened things up with a mixed bag of quizzes, pool, darts and stone-baked pizza – both eat-in and takeaway. Even better, they serve Brancaster Brewery Ales from their own microbrewery and you can sup away inside or outside in the beer garden.

A fantastic local pub ★★★★★

The Jollys has long been an absolute favourite of mine. I have been popping into the pub for the last 15 years, and massively enjoy eating and drinking there at any time of the year. The pub itself has several cosy bar areas, and a larger restaurant tucked round the back. This lends itself perfectly to both a quite pint with a loved one, or a bigger table for a bunch of friends. The food is delicious - a very decent price and nice sized portions to perk you up after a walk on the beach, with a large selection, from burgers to seafood and the most delectable mussels during the season. There is a large beer garden as well as a covered outdoor space with heaters for the colder months. The bar staff and restaurant staff are all incredibly friendly and welcoming. Every time I have been in, the locals themselves have been very open and happy to have a chat or join in the banter.

I completely recommend this pub whatever you want, from a family meal, or a meeting place for a group of friends to a romantic night out. A great coastal pub.
