Very atmospheric bar complete with he olde fire place. Lovely place to have lunch. We had drinks and then I ordered fish & chips whilst my wife ordered chorizo salad meal.

Whilst spending some time with a friend from a different part of the country we spent an extremely pleasant few hours in Orford together with our dog enjoying the early Autumn sunshine. I have known this establishment for 40 odd years so we went in and decided to take our pick of the indoor seating where our dog was welcome....

A very nice pub, relaxed and providing good food. Anne and Janet had a scampi, which looked good and which they thoroughly enjoyed. Robert and I had pan fried chicken and a mixture of vegetables.

Just returned from a short stay in Orford. One of our many visits but we never leave without making our pilgrimage to the Jolly Sailor. A stone's throw from the Quay it is a traditional fisherman's haunt where you get a sense that not much has changed since smugglers strolled up from the quay! There are some contemporary updates of...

When in Orford and walking down to the waterside it would be rude not to call in at the Jolly Sailor for a swift pint with friendly locals and bar staff. Although we did not stay there we know that they also offer rooms
