No just berth on the town quay, the pub is effectivly on the quay. As JK said there is never anyone there to collect money so I assume it is free.

On a big spring the tide floods the quay. The wooden piles stop RIBs from being pushed onto the quay itself, but it looks a bit surreal when you come out of the pub and the bench on the quay is about 15m to seaward of you have to wade out to it and the boats.

Thanks Doug for the info.

Had agreat day out, watched the start of the Fastnet race and then picked up some friends and went up to the Jolly Sailor.

The facilities for the boat were excellent, not a massive jetty but enough to get about 5/6 boats tied up without having to raft up.

We had our lunch sat on tables on the walkway out to the boats, under the new covers. An excellent way to dine and enjoy views. The standard of the pub was very good.

Seven of us had lunch and all had different meals. I would say the standard was variable!
I had belly of Pork, the taste was excellent as was presentation, but very fatty. The lamb roast was overly grisley. The other meals were good, including portion size.

So I would recommend for the stunning scenary, good location and boat facilities, but food selection needs care.

Steve

As long as the bouncy castle is still there, as that's the most important thing?

I've yet to try this place and must give it a go. Is it only accessible under certain tides?

So it's not exactly a relaxing place to stop then?! At least if you're worried about being stranded....

it's lovely It's very relaxing I just got into talking shit about music with a local for too long and was stranded. The funny thing was I was loking at the water out of a window and it seemed alright. I got outside and there was no water left in the creek I'd been glancing at the mill pond
