A really nice atmosphere with a beautiful sea front location. A range of meals on the menu - all freshly cooked and beautifully presented. A range of options gluten free - would highly recommend the gluten free fish and chips.

Walked here from Lowestoft, arrived just after 6 on a Friday evening, bit of a bistro pub, lots of youngsters and quite noisy. Food good but a bit pricey, lovely views, staff extremely polite. Would I go back....not sure.

The Jolly Sailors was recommended to us by our hotel and we weren't disappointed. The menu was thoughtful and tasty. We sat outside overlooking the sea. Certainly worth a visit if you are in town.
