Jolly Sailor, Ashlett Creek?

I went up Ashlett Creek (Southampton Water) over the weekend, and found that the Jolly Sailor was closed and boarded up. Anyone know why? Shame as its another pub gone from the shore-line.

Good news! I had an email this week to say that the Jolly Sailor is back up and running

For anyone heading that way the Ashlett Sailing Club have got some navigaton notes and a schematic chart of the creek which should be useful.

As fas as I know there is no charge for mooring, so maybe this ought to become the (admittedly tidal) RIBnet HQ instead of the lightship!

I was there on Sunday afternoon and can confirm that the Jolly Sailor has re-opened.

Sounds like an ideal location for a Ribnet meeting to support the new owners. Make a change from Yarmouth. Just need a weekend mid day high water.

The food is good there, but you definitely need the right tide.

Lewy,

I actually drove the car there. I knew it shut a while ago and was just 'snooping' around.

I didn't go in but they were serving food - can't vouch for the quality but worth a punt.

However, many moons ago I enjoyed a sunny beer or two out on the benches outside - it's very peaceful spot and when the Scorpion is next in the water it will venture over there!!

Personally, I think we adventerous boat types should support these types of places - use them or lose them, I say!

(obviously these days I'll be on lemonades, as my 6.9m rib with a top speed of 6.9 knots hasn't arrived yet.......)

Spring tides are in the early afternoon around here - perfect for a lunch stop

Am going to try this tomorrow as the weather and tides are looking good. Planning on arriving at about 1330. Does the pub have its own pontoon?
