Voted the nation’s favourite family pub, our 18th century village local on the Norfolk coast serves real ales from our microbrewery Brancaster Brewery, home cooked wholesome food, great pub classics including Jolly Smokehouse specials, local seafood, stone baked pizzas and ice cream from a garden beach hut (and not forgetting the largest selection of rum on the coast!).

    The staff were really helpful, menu was good, food was tasty - lovely fish and chips, but not much atmosphere as it’s a very large open restaurant area

    Always enjoyed eating at the jolly sailor in previous visits. Unfortunately today service was slow, some staff less than friendly/disinterested, food ordered came out at different times and incorrect and tasted pretty poor. The pizza was not cooked and the chips were oily and over cooked. When we mentioned the glitch with the order the staff member replied “oh well”. Such a shame as usually/previously a great place to visit. Won’t be back in a hurry!

    Friendly & efficient staff, nice food and plenty of it, a few too many dogs around while we were eating but they were well behaved and looked friendly. It was an enjoyable meal and Mum's were given a complimentary glass of prosecco. Well done all.
