2 for 1 at The Jolly Sailor

The Jolly Sailor located in Hythe Quay in Maldon, Essex, is a delightful 17th Century Pub, ideally positioned overlooking the River Blackwater, providing great food, drink and accommodation, however food and drink is the heart and soul of this venue.

Not surprisingly, fish dishes are at the centre of the menu offerings at the Jolly Sailor. The fish is delivered fresh daily from local trawler men, ensuring the upmost quality is delivered to your table. The range of fish dishes, all lovingly prepared and very reasonably priced, would be difficult to better in even the finest fish restaurants. Although the dishes available do change from day to day, typically available dishes include Dover Sole, Skate Wings, Rock Salmon and Breaded Cod.

The cosy bars offer a trip back in time with their traditional atmosphere and sturdy beams taken from old sailing ships. Enjoy a pint or two or a glass of wine in a quiet corner and savour the great food available. With the smell of sea air to encourage your appetite you are sure to enjoy all that the Jolly Sailor has to offer.

Important Information

    Lovely location in Maldon on the river, we sat outside and this is a great place to have a few drinks, the venue holds a lot of promise, but the food is basic and so is the services, they could do a lot better, it’s not bad, compare it to other pub grub and it’s the same, it’s just I would like better service and better food.

    Amazingly tasty food at very reasonable prices and more than generous portions - served in a friendly atmosphere.

    Can't wait to go back! "

    My wife & I visited on a hot Friday early evening at the end of the school holidays. This is a wonderful quayside location. The fish and chips were very nice pub food, and the service was fast, efficient and friendly despite their being quite busy. It was good value without the discount. There was one stain on the memory, that it was not very tastecard friendly. They refused tastecard as we hadn't booked, even though the same lady had told us the day before we COULDN''T book for busy evenings, and she seemed unsympathetic about the misunderstanding. So, be careful, but go ahead. It's a good place. "
