We’re delighted to be the new owners of The Jovial Sailor in the beautiful village of Ripley. We've had a major refurbishment inside and out and are now open for business!  We're serving fantastic food all day every day and have a wide and varied menu, including our delicious Vegan Menu.  We offer something to suit all ages, from bar snacks and a pint to great Sunday Roasts. Our Dining Pods, large patio area and beautifully-kept gardens are perfect for alfresco dining. Situated close to the A3 and M25 and just minutes from RHS Wisley Gardens, The Jovial Sailor makes an ideal meeting place.

We had a pleasant evening yesterday, decent beers, good service. The only disappointment was the potato hash and chorizo starter. It is accompanied with a fried egg on top. We asked for a poached egg instead of a fried egg; the waitress came back to advise that the chef couldn't do a poached egg! Doubtless he knows how to poach an egg so presumably he couldn't be bothered. Ours wasn't an unreasonable request and one that wouldn't take much time to accommodate.
