One review from October 2023 wrote: “We were made very welcome by excellent staff. I cannot fault it at all. There are superb views down from Milford Haven.

“Their Welsh lamb dinner is to die for. It was by far the best roast lamb I have eaten in many years, accompanied by perfectly cooked vegetables and beautiful roast potatoes covered in a superb, tasty gravy.

“It's five-star eating at a very reasonable price. So good that we are going back tomorrow for another evening meal from their great menu.”

Another review from March 2024 added: “We visited as a family of five today. I pre-booked a window table which had wonderful views. The staff were amazing, and we felt very well cared for by all.

“Nothing was too much trouble. Our meals were lovely and the portions plentiful - it was good value too. It really was a lovely lunch out. We would wholeheartedly recommend this pub. We wish this was our local pub.”

Apart from the Welsh lamb dinner, the Jolly Sailor’s menu consists of a homemade steak and mushroom pie, prime pork sausages, chicken and beef burgers, marinated chicken breasts, homemade vegetable soup and a 12-ounce gammon steak.
