Parking nightmare! Disappointing as expected fresh fish. Most starters frozen AND deep fried. Main fish starter did not appear fresh either. Chips appear to be made from reconstituted potatoe. Not worth 40 mile trip there! And definitely not worth another 40 miles home. Even though we had it cheaper with Groupon. Our local fish shop far superior.

We were very disappointed that their is now a Groupon menu which has cut a lot off the previous menu when using Groupon. The starter was great, the only thing I would order on the Groupon menu was the gammon and mine was so overcooked I could not eat it and although you offered to make me another it turned out you had no more gammon, even though it was only 6pm. As I said previously, there was nothing I would eat on the cooked menu so decided on a prawn salad, which was a lot of lettuce and a lot of prawns and not much else. It was kind of you to give us a little pack of homemade biscuits for our dog, but it has put me off coming back.

not really sure that the Jolly Sailor understands the point of getting Customers to experience and try their establishment at a Groupon rate . I would have thought that the point would be to try to impress these (new) Groupon Customers so that they would return and become regular Customers paying the full rate . unfortunately my experience at the Jolly Sailor will probably result in my never patronising the restaurant again . The Jolly Burger at full price is I believe 5pence shy of 10pounds but the burger was unfortunately so dried up , over cooked and hard and with a consistency that would be better served as a space saver temporary 50mph spare tyre and I'm sure that I could have battered my way through into any bank vault in the land using the unfortunate specimen . there was also some confusion over the drinks as we had agreed that our wine would be served with our meal and having also ordered an additional round of drinks we were left to eat with no drinks at all for a considerable amount of time while the waitress declared "he's doing em" whilst we sat watching the barman "not doing em" at all as he stood there hand drying glasses while both of them tried desperately not to crack first and actually serve us neither the wine we had already paid for nor the additional round of drinks that we had ordered . still , perhaps we just caught them on an off night , but we certainly will not be risking catching them on another one ! ! ! great shame as it is just so nice to visit somewhere and be impressed enough to go back again ! ! ! !

Quality of both established and food not up to standard

Unhappy about having to sit between a slot machine and another table which was no more than a foot away. Decoration certainly left a lot to be desired.
