A stunning location overlooking Hamble Marina

The Jolly Sailor is known to have existed as a pub since as early as 1751 and joined the Hall & Woodhouse family in 1987. Set in a stunning location, adjacent to Elephant Boatyard and at the heart of “Howard’s Way” the hugely popular late 1980’s BBC drama series, the pub offers unrivalled views across Hamble Marina. Our extensive outside decking and seating areas, together with our very own pontoon, mean that guests are never far from the hustle and bustle of local marine life.
We even have 8 moorings for small boats, but do check the tide timetable for Bursledon as our Pontoon dries out every day.

Sunday Roasts

We think our famous roasts are among the best (apart from Mum’s!). Freshly prepared every Sunday morning, featuring our 28-day aged West Country beef and all served with seasonal veg, Yorkshires, roasties and homemade gravy, we know you won’t be disappointed.
