We chose the Jovial Sailor for a relaxed family lunch and it didn't disappoint. We booked one of the huts so we had private space as we had a baby with us and we're unsure of the weather. It was a beautiful day so we moved out to the garden. Excellent service. We chose to have various sharing plates which were all delicious. Thoroughly recommend this venue.

I took my elderly parents for Sunday Lunch and we had a most enjoyable experience. Staff were friendly and attentive along with a great choice of roast dinners with plenty of vegetables. Portion were large and serve hot which pleased my parents. We were tempted by the great pudding selection so all in all a great experience which we will repeat.
