A real gem in West Looe
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Sept 2023
We had a wonderful break at this lovely old inn. It has an interesting history and is full of atmosphere and character. The staff are all delightfully friendly and welcoming and we particularly liked Chloe who welcomed us each morning at Breakfast with a smile and efficient friendly service.
There are only four rooms at this inn. Ours was on the first floor and we loved it! It was clean and had everything we needed. There was a separate back entrance for hotel guests so that we could come and go as we pleased when the pub part wasn’t open which we found really useful.
You are given breakfast order sheets when you arrive and you tick what you want and hand the slip in before 6pm the night before. This means you know exactly what you are getting and that there is no wasted food. Next to Full English breakfast,for example you write the number required but can add notes such as any items you don’t want and also how you like your egg cooked. It is a really good system.
The inn is very near West Looe quay which has a lovely view of the harbour. It is also where the buses stop. The stop is ‘West Looe Fire Station.’ We used the buses every day and had some lovely days out. We went to Lostwithiel,Liskeard,Polperro Polruan and Fowey but there were other options too. We enjoyed exploring East Looe with its gift shops,pasty shops and craft displays. The museum is fascinating and the banjo pier and East beach are really worth a visit.
We did the excursion to Looe Island with two hours ashore there which was great. In the evenings at the Jolly Sailor we enjoyed a folk night and they have sea shanty singing on Thursdays. There is always a quiz on Monday night.All in all it was a great holiday we didn’t want to leave and will certainly be back.

    Had the best pub curry i have ever had today at the jolly sailor in looe, nothing was to much trouble for Gary who on request added some more spice to heat up the curry for me. If you like a hotter home cooked curry give it a try. When ordering ask for a special curry. Thanks again Garry.

    My wife and I stayed at the Jolly Sailor for a couple of nights at the end of August and could not fault it. Great pub with a really vibrant and warm atmosphere, fantastic room and excellent food. Breakfast, in particular, was delicious - the scrambled eggs were amazing! The pizzas were pretty darn good too! The owners and staff were all lovely and the location is perfect.

    Room tip: Do the walk to Polperro - it's beautiful.

    The location of the Jolly sailor is perfect , 30 seconds you are on the river bank and the bus stop for Polperro and 10 mins easy walk into the town centre. For just £1 per person a water taxi will take you over if your feeling lazy. We managed to bag a free parking space opposite the pub so that was a bonus. Zoe and Garry the perfect hosts and made us super welcome and nothing was to much trouble. We stayed in room 2 with our 16 year old son and he had a double pull out bed that was very comfortable with a view out to the river and we had a big double bed that was very comfy indeed. It was a big spacious Bedroom! Very clean and bright with a large shower etc . Amazing breakfast that you select the day before and very tasty. The pub is full of character and olde worldy charm from 1512 which we loved. Zoe helped us find bus times for Polperro and shared a few ghost stories with us. If plannimg to book the Jolly Sailor best rates are available if you call or book on the website. We saved £70 booking direct over the cost of bookings.com. We arived as strangers and left as friends and we will be back for sure. Thank You Zoe and Garry for your hospitality and local knowledge.

    Found this treasure of a pub while on a day visit to Looe. Welcoming staff and friendly locals made for a really enjoyable visit. Low beams and flagstone floors create the ambience you would expect from an old school pub, but the provision of games and the presence of dogs and children makes a really good family atmosphere
