A seafront former hotel, as described by Quinno, below, and with the same beers on, both substandard. They host live music acts in the main bar, and there are TV screens, but these were mute when we visited. They also get funny about glasses, thinking we were about to go and drink outside (in March?). Staff were friendly, but some of the locals were a bit hostile. Not that jolly at all, really, which is a shame given the potential its location and architecture offer.

Quinno _ left this review about The Jolly Sailor

Large pub with enviable raised position overlooking the park and near the waterfront. Enter via a revolving door to large, fairly featureless open-plan room decorated in greeny mushroom shades. . “TJs Diner” lies at the far end, which had an American influence with hides and saddles mounted on the wall. Two pumps, a fairly dire St Austell Tribute and turned Doom Bar clip. At 2 quid a half I wasn’t best impressed, although the barmaid was friendly enough. A pretty poor one, really.
