Aqualung . left this review about Jolly Sailor (JD Wetherspoon)

I was surprised to learn that this is an original pub as it struck me that it was a typical small older Spoons and it isn't even that as can be seen below. I also completely failed to notice an upstairs bar but before midday on a Saturday it may not have been open. The downstairs bar consists of an unremarkable smallish single L shaped room.
There are only five hand pumps which had the JDW Trio Of Doom, Box Steam Piston Broke and Hobgoblin Gold. Cider is good value in these parts so I went for the Black Dragon one from the fridge (£2.75) which was just the job on a hot day.
I thought this one was OK.

A proper pub, not a conversion, by the look of things, and this initially appears to be one of the smaller surviving 'spoons. Nothing of note inside the 'L'-shaped interior as it has all the usual dark furniture and decor of the early examples. Also has a rear patio area. Only five handpumps on the bar counter too, from which the Adnams / Dungarvan Irish Red (£2.15) was the pick. However, on further examination, there is also a second (smaller) bar upstairs with two further (duplicated) handpumps. However, the place seems well managed, and the food service was very prompt.

This is a recent addition to the Wetherspoon’s stable. It’s a traditional Victorian red-brick public house that was somewhat down at heel previously, and has now been given a new lease of life with a JDW makeover.

It’s perhaps a little smaller than many of their pubs, although there were signs pointing to more seating and another bar area upstairs, which I didn’t investigate. There is also a small courtyard garden/smoking area at the back. Decor is inevitably much the same as any Wetherspoons, with some wood panelling on the walls along with freshly painted plaster in mellow tones, and a dark patterned carpet. The only feature of any interest is the fireplace with a large mirror up above. There are also plenty of pictures and other information on the walls about the local area.

There was a plasma screen showing a news channel, although this had the volume down and was tucked out the way around the corner. There were also a couple of fruit machines opposite the bar and several A-boards promoting the various meal deals available.

Beers on tap were Milk Street’s Amarillo, GWB Maiden Voyage, Hydes Ship Shape, Abbott Ale and Ruddles Best. Ciders were Blackthorn, Strongbow and Thatcher’s Gold.
