I'd been planning on visiting The Jolly Roger for some time but for some reason always ended up elsewhere. The mixed reviews didn't help either and to any casual reader they could have said 'don't bother'. Well, let me put the record straight .... the...More

Great Location, but let down by the quality of the food, presentation and the attitude of staff. Sunday Lunch (served 1200 - 1500) is mass produced and it shows as the veg was over done and the meat dry, but given lashings of gravy to...More

Sad how this great pub has gone down hill since the last Tennant left here's hoping for a change in ownership so that it can get revived

Great views but unfortunately nothing else great about this pub. The sea bass fillets were overcooked and dry, the accompanying salad was wet iceberg lettuce, grated carrots, a bit of red onion, two quarters of tomato and two slices cucumber. We couldn't get waitress attention,...More

Bit pricey but worth it for a great lunch or dinner with views of the harbour. A proper pub! Staff always friendly even when rushed and it's got great sitting space outside. Good for a pint while walking the dog
