Jolly Sailor Food Review
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Oct 2023
We visited for a meal early October and having read the Tripadvisor reviews, we expected something really special.
We were disappointed with the fish pie and veg. It was served in a rectangular plate in a pie dish and I found it really stodgy with lots of potato topping, and not that much fish. The pub itself is extremely rustic and worth a visit for a drink, but avoid the coke on tap as it was horrible. Too tired after a day’s travelling to complain, just wanted to leave.

We stayed at the Jolly Sailor for three nights. They have the Seashanty singers on a Thursday which is brilliant. We ate there for dinner which was excellent. The pub staff are really friendly and welcoming. The owner is lovely and gave us a list of great places to eat. Breakfast is excellent! This is a little gem of a place. I would definitely recommend it. Its well located too.

Friendly place. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Great location near to the quay. Very helpful when dealing with a food intolerance. We stayed for two nights and would have happily stayed longer. Highly recommended

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.

Room tip: The evening meals are lovely but it is a popular venue which becomes crowded so book a table especially on folk/ shanty nights.

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.
