    My visit was almost 100% perfect with the food,comfort and drinks, but what let you down was the service from your young new staff, I felt that they were thrown into the deep end , no or very little training was obvious,asked three times for our order for food not very caring for customers, service behind the bar did not really what to do when asked for drinks or even know what a tonic was or how it should be served, apart from that well done, I would come back again .

    A quiet evening. The service was quick and good. The food was well cooked and tasty. We both had the sausage mash peas and onion rings. There was plenty of gravy. Dessert was sticky toffee pudding which was very very sweet and I wasn’t able to finish because of that. My fault perhaps. We had a bottle of wine and the cost each was just under £25 which was very reasonable

    A Friday lunchtime, in April was probably not the best time to go for ambiance, but otherwise it was a delightful visit. The staff were lovely and obliging, the food was tasty and pretty good value for money. The setting lovely with views across the harbour to Portsdown Hill. Will definitely go again.

    Great food and choice that sorted everyone at our table, vegan food that was delicious and three choices of main and two starters only one dessert but delicious. The steak eaters loved it and one said the pepper sauce was the best he had ever had. Good choice children’s menu too.

    Had the Valentines set meal Quite a good choice of menu on it but would have liked to see chicken on there, prawn cocktail starter was nice and fresh, the mustard mash was tasty with the pork but quite a lot of fat on the pork, the cherry sundae with coconut rice and waffles was delicious. Service was a bit slow and had to ask twice for menus and second round of drinks, would have understood if pub was busy but it wasn't.Pleasant evening though

    My and my girlfriend went here yesterday for a email and I can honestly say it was a stunning meal I went with the mixed grill fantastic good size portions maybe a extra sausage and a mushroom, personal preference of course and the misses had fried halloumi sticks plenty of food good prices only thing I would say is the sticky toffee pudding was very dry and pretty tuff but will 100% recommend and will be coming back.

    Had a lovely Sunday Lunch at The Jolly yesterday. The food was excellent as it usually is... the only downside was the service was quite slow...we had been seated a good 20 minutes b4 the waiter/waitress came to take our drinks orders and we actually had to ask to order our food. But still worth a visit and the Roast Dinner is great 👍

    Sat us down with you g children by a table of lads swearing and downing pints. Sadly didn't ask about how we wanted our steaks so most food was left. I expected a family to be seated in a quieter spot - this was a massive shame and a huge downside. Otherwise, service was excellent and cannot fault waiting staff.

    Reserved well in advance, table not ready, when asked if it could be cleaned twice, we ended up doing it ourselves. Food was warm and greasy. The lady in charge was very nice and apologetic. Staff in the kitchen wore no aprons and one member was vaping. But this was our Christmas work meal and it was a total disaster. Myself and my friends will not be returning.

    The food was amazing, we had to wait a while for it as it was very busy with Christmas Parties but it was worth thr wait. The staff were Brittany and didn't stop all night. They had a band on so it was loud but I can imagine on a normal night it would just be the juke box so would be quieter. Definitely worth a visit.

    Great pub grub, everything came out hot and tasty, only thing that could’ve been better was the service, we waited a long time to have plates cleared and ask for the bill, considering we were the only ones in there. But small gripe, the food was great
